Laojunshan is home to 168 endangered plant and animal species including the Yunnan Golden Monkey (滇金丝猴). It also boasts 10 percent of the world's rhododendron species.Despite being added to China's fledgling National Park system in 2011, there is very little information on Laojunshan in English.The only practical option for most travelers wanting to visit Laojun Mountain is to hire a van from Lijiang or Dali to Qunlong Shanzhuang (群龙山庄), a small village at an elevation of 3,800 meters. The town has the only official entrance to the scenic area.As a result of the travel expenses and time that this route entails, most visitors to Laojun Mountain opt instead to tour the sandstone rock formations at Liming. They are more accessible and offer a mix of both Karst and red sandstone geologic rock formations.We were in the mood for hiking and decided it would be more rewarding to trek around Laojun Mountain instead.
