We went to the park for three days and had to pay the entrance ticket in full every day (310 RMB pp), so it was an expensive experience. But, the scenery was beautiful and the spots easy to find. We took the bus to the top, walked between some of the most interesting spots, took the bus again where there... More

Visited park during Chineze summertime. This means a busy park. Be prepared ( homework internet) as the only English is : exit, wc and some lake names. One does not speak English. We were the only non-Chinese during the whole day . But it is very interesting and worth seeing. And putting things in perspective: despite the large crowds: you... More

It costs relatively a lot of effort to reach Jiuzhaigou NP (9 hours by bus from Chengdu or a lot of money by plane to fly in and out). Be aware of the fact that you can't buy two day passes in high season anymore. So you have to get around in one day (which is possible) or spend a... More

There is no word in the English or Chinese dictionary that can describe the color of the water in Jiuzhaigou. Hence, it has been called 'jiuzhai' blue. Witness for yourself how blue and how clear the lakes are in jiuzhaigou. On good days when the water is still, you can see the mountains, the skies and the birds reflected in... More

Summer is a good time to travel to Jiuzhaigou. Temperature is between 20-30C during day time and at night, it's around 15-20 basically. After one day's drive we arrive in Jiuzhaigou and overnight in the town. It is a very tourist place in summer here despite the long drive and the possible road cut-off by landslide in summer time. And... More

Quite an amazing location, but super touristy. Whole area is so done up to cater to tourists that there is no mountain treks but only proper, wood-planked/concrete food path. Entry is per day even though you would prefer to do it over 2 days. I did it over 2 days, with a good portion of time dedicated to walking along... More

Jiuzhaigou is great all the year round but in autumn it is really breathtaking. Its roaring waterfalls, multicoloured lakes, shoals with clear transparent water surrounded by grey mountains, red yellow green trees,white feather grass can't be described in words. These sights make you speechless.
