The total tail distance is 94km and you will probably needs 2 days to walk leisurely within it to marvel at nature's beauty. The lakes has crystal clear naturally coloured waters while the waterfalls was rushing majesty. Very nice experience and best viewed during Autumn (late-Sep - end-Oct) period.

Be sure to get off at the first bus stop. We found ourselves totally alone for three hours. Student card gives 50% off.

The scenery was beyond words, absolutely beautiful, not going to talk much about the scenery, nor am I going to complaint more about the local tourists as you can read all about it from the other post. In general, if you are able to, spend 2 days there, if you have enough people and wouldn't mind spend extra then get... More

Ready your walking shoes and camera. The place is really breath-taking, hope i can say the same thing about people's etiquette around the park. We saw a couple of smokers beside the trees and a sign that says no smoking. Common sense tells you that there is a high probability of forest fire! Hope to see more park patrols in... More

Spend at least 2 full days here to really take in all the beautiful lakes, waterfalls and mountain scenery. Take the shuttle to the top end of the park and walk your way down along the walkways to fully absorb the spectacular sceneries. Seniors above 60 pay half price for the entrance fee and gets free entrance if above 70.... More

The scenery is amazing. Period. Sadly, the tourists are maddening, particularly if you have not been exposed to it much before or if you have been exposed to it too much. You will be pushed (a lot) and see spitting and touching and trampling. You will not see wildlife of any kind at any distance (barring 4 ducks). You will... More

We spent two nights here, with a full day of walking in between. Here are some pointers: It's worth it. The park is amazing, put up with the few negatives, because the positives outweight them. Pay 300Y each way to get a normal taxi to and from the airport to the park town. Stay at one of the hotels near... More

A definite not to be missed back to the nature attraction. No worries about DIY in Jiuzhaigou as long as you stay in a good hotel such Holiday Inn Jarpo and have all you transport arrangements made in advance by the hotel representative, right from pick-up at the airport, stopping at Huanglong for half a day prior to checking-in: a...

Beautiful and very natural scenic park. Must see. It's at an altitude of 2,000 m above sea level. This park and the Yellow Dragon Park are one of the better conservation parks in China worth seeing. Both parks are 3 hours drive apart.
