I was amased at the views from the top of the park. A bit of a hike up, but easy walking along the boardwalk. It was worth the climb for the views we got from the top and very scenic walking back down. More scenic on the way down than it was when walking up.

The scenery is beautiful. The serenity of the lakes is unbelievable and the facilities at the reserve are very good.

Went here with my family and it was marvelous! It was nice to sit in the bus and look at the views. Quite a lot of walking too but it is a great walk. Make sure your camera is fully charged and you have lots of free storage:)) Lots of people here so it can be annoying at some point.... More

When we reached there at 7am in the morning , there was already a long queue to buy tickets and another long queue to get into the park. 310 yuan for the adult ticket with bus rides. Impossible to do it without the bus ticket. The second day , we were smarter. We bought the tickets the day before .... More

The park is awesome in its colours especially the lakes. The pictures that you might see on any website are real. I could not believe the eye popping colours of the lakes. It seemed that someone had coloured the bottom of the lakes bright turquoise. When I saw the pictures on the web before visiting, I thought they were unreal.... More

There are buses to go up the road and I'm pretty sure they're free, but there are tremendously long lines. We went with a tour company, but the prices to rent a personal bus per person are OUTRAGEOUS. Something weird about this natural reserve, is that there are extremely fast wifi hotspots everywhere. During our entire stay here, the adults... More

The view was breathtaking and they have really nice mountains. It would be great if it's less crowded and I mean it.. It's a real long queue for entrance tickets and the bus, and some just cut your queue. It's worth spending a day in the park but bring your own food and drinks. The toilet in the park was... More

The view is magnificent! But, too many people! Very noisy and you cant really enjoy the view peacefully with that much of people. Long waiting time for the bus, saw someone spit into the water, put their legs into water!

If you have looked at pictures, read the guide books and reviews, you already know that this is a special place, so let's get that out of the way: it is one of the most spectacular places you will ever see. However, the entire experience can be ruined if you are not well prepared and plan accordingly. 1. You NEED... More

Visited the Jiuzhaiguo National in June. In the park, we chartered a private bus at ¥250 pp as opposed to taking the public buses. You have to push your way up the public bus and you have to get down at each stop. Eaxh stop brings you to a scenic locality and after you have enjoyed the sights, you join... More
