Access Update 2023

Access Update 2023

Jinsha River Bridge The bridge over the Jinsha River opened April 2023 for vehicles and pedestrians. This allows direct access to Daju Village from Tiger Leaping Village. Ferry service across the river has ended, bringing to a close this long-standing service.

Jianshan Route Access The road above Longwangbian Village has been extended to an elevation of 2,900 meters, where a guest house is under construction (27°22’42“N, 100°7’12“E). The guest house is located directly on the lower part of the Jianshan Route. From here to Black Boulder Junction takes 15 minutes. Ask a guest house for a lift to the end of the road and save about 45 minutes of walking if starting from Haba Snow Mountain Inn.

Lanhua Meadow Route Access Mules for riding or packing can be contracted at a location called De La Mu Chang (德拉牧场) situated at 3,250 meters on the Lanhua Meadow Route (27°23’36“N, 100°6’11“E). Inquire at guest houses in Haba Village for more information. Passenger cars with reasonable clearance can drive 2-3 kilometers up to this spot using the rough forest road starting at the Access Gate. De La Mu Chang is located beyond the side road which leads to the fishing pond. Gaining a lift to the spot will save 1¾ hours of walking over starting out at Haba Snow Mountain.
