Cool Mountains: Yaks, lakes and the Yi people in northwest Yunnan

To see when you are in Kunming
Like most places in northwest Yunnan, mountains dominate the landscapes of Ninglang County Called Xiaoliangshan the Lesser Cool Mountains — to distinguish them from Daliangshan, the Greater Cool Mountains across the border in Sichuan — they rise on either side of the area's main north-south highway, sometimes reaching over 4,000 meters in altitude. They are often blanketed in snow in late autumn, a gleaming white mantle that persists until the warmth of May.

The county's towns lie in separate valleys along the highway, with mild ascents over the hills between them.
