The natural reserve Is truly amazing. Going in early spring means there's still a glimpse of snow and lots of greens. However, there's an absence of waterfall and the colourful autumn leaves at this period. Nevertheless, it's still very refreshing and the cool breeze make the stroll very comfortable. There's definitely a need to spend at least a day covering... More

The timing of a visit make a big difference. In April, the lake water levels were low. People said that we have a choice, a beautiful lakes with a lots of tourist or less impressive view with less tourist. It's a difficult choice.

To make sure I get a different experience from the super-crowded first visit I made in Oct 2012, I deliberately chose the off peak month of March for my second visit. To further ensure that I will be able to wonder around unhurriedly, I also chartered an official mini bus from the park via my travel agent. Together with my... More

In the north of Sichuan Province lies Jiuzhaigou, a nature reserve which brings Chinese tourists flocking. Do not let the crowds stop you, this incredible national park lies within a valley on the edge of a Tibetan Plateau stretching over 72,000 hectares. Famous for is crystal clear lakes and stunning waterfalls it is destination not to be missed.

I first travelled to Sichuan to check out the Pandas and this colorful natural Reserve I've heard so much about in 2009. Since it was only a year after the major Sichuan earthquake, the roads were all blocked and being reconstructed. Finally in 2012 I got to see it. We took a 10hours bus ride which went through the affected... More

We visited the national park in December '13. Unlike the internet pictures that a lot of people are probably used to see, the park in December is no longer glowing in red and yellow. Most trees had shed their leaves, covering the hills and mountains in the area with shades of brown. The lakes remained spectacularly turquoise-blue and some of... More

the lakes here are amazing - having a map of the area so you can see where the hop on hop off buses is very important - especially in winter. The inconsistent information given by staff is bizarre - one day some staff said the last bus was at 4pm and were telling people all the way along the bus... More
