Viewpoints of Yulong mountain between Lijiang/ Tiger gorge

What are some of the great viewpoints of the snow-capped mountains between Lijiang and the Tiger leaping gorge that is car accessible.?

I saw some beautiful photo of the mountains along the hiking trails. I heard several villages are now car accessible. What would be your recommendation For nice looking village with great view of the snow-capped mountains ?

The road from LJ to TLG is a very circuitous route that goes way out to Shigu and back, and so is not great for views of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

Having said that, I really enjoyed hiking in the villages to the east of Shigu on the old access road to Lashihai for some amazing views of the surrounding mountains. In fact Jade Dragon can be seen from as far away as Shaxi. The peak is clearly visible from Bailongtan in the early evenings for example.
