Last updated by elysees at 2014/8/19

Located 25 kilometers to the north of Lijiang, White Water River is actually formed by runoff from the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. White Water River has another name- milk river. Its flat riverbed consists of white lime stones and marbles when seen from the bank, the water looks white, hence its name.

This river gives visitor the white first impression. The water is crystal clear and pure. The water main source - ice-cold water melted into numerous small springs from the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the snow capped mountain, runs into the White Water River. The water is extremely cold even in summer so that visitors could enjoy cool to avoid summer heat.

White Water River presents its cascading waterfalls, lush vegetation nearby and snow capped mountains far away as its background in a magnificent and miraculous way. Standing beside the river, visitors will have a view of the grand and charming spectacle of the snow mountain.

The best visiting season is summer and autumn, respectively from June to July and September to October. It is a nice place to avoid summer heat. Visitors can appreciate the scenery along the bank either by foot or by riding a horse.
