We enjoyed our 3 hours with the horses. Although a bit disappointed at first that we were walking with the guide who was leading the horse, we soon enjoyed the scenery. For sure our driver got a commission from the place where we rented the horse, but ... does it really matters? we enjoyed our lunch after the 3 hours... More

Our group of five Americans visited Zhongcha Valley today and opted for the "three-hour" horseback tour @ ¥275/person. it was OK as a diversion from the crowds of Jiuzhaigou, but not esp. authentic or as scenic as we had hoped. The horse concession is a micro-finance project: Jiuzhaigou village received funding from the govt to buy horses and widen the... More

This place is good only if you are interested in taking a horse ride. The horses are pulled by Tibetans trying to make some money. You can opt for an hour or a 2 hour ride. I think it was ¥100 per person per hour. It was a nice little ride as it is quite a scenic route but be... More

So I had originally planned to spend multiple days visiting jiuzhaigou national park, but after paying the fee for one day was not interested in having to pay the same price again(wished the ticket was multi day like zhangjiajie). Anyways since I was here the hostel recommended a trip to Zhongcha village which is an authentic tibetan village completely different... More

they will bring you to holy mountain, and asked 50RMB to buy incense. if you dont want to pay, just say you have your own beliefs. also you can take picture with yak (at mini grassland) and drink yak milk tea, of course for some money

THE SETTING I visited this village with my family in late August 2013, at the end of the Chinese summer vacation. Even then there were very few people, so this will be a very restful place if you're tired of the bus crowds at Jiuzhaigou. The scenery is impressive and very peaceful. You're surrounded by high mountains on all sides.... More

we rented a car and visited Zhongcha. Quiet, clean, nature and nice people in the Tibetan village that showed us how they dry the mushrooms and peppers and we bought some. They are building some tourist facilities but it is still quiet and original.

I stayed in Sheraton Jiuzhaigou Resort and planned 2 full day's for exploring the JZG valley.

I joined other hotelguest to share Taxi hire for RMB 200=RMB100p.p. (drive, waiting for... More

My family went to Zhongcha Canyon/village which is 20 minutes from Jiuzhaigou park. (40 minutes ride from intercontinental Hotel). Words can not describe how beautiful this place is. It is surrounded by snowy mountains and beautiful woods. We did a horse riding tour for a little over 2 hours. We all had a good time. We were the only tourists... More
