The park is stunning and beautifully maintained. You take the bus up and down if you don't feel like walking, and otherwise stroll around on a boardwalk. It's very easy to navigate and you'll come home with wonderful pictures. The only "downside" is exactly that: everybody follows essentially one route and stops at the same sites and that means crowds... More

I went there on July 2015.Even though it wasn't a high season,the park was still crowded with people.The lakes were crystal clear and the sky was so bright. According to hotel's staff The best season to visit the park is around August and September.

A world away from the rest of China. The area is pristine, well managed by the authorities despite the hoards of tourists.

This is a must go place to go as there's lakes. waterfalls, good walking boardwalks and rest stops. There's hop on buses to take if you don't wish to walk and just enjoy the beautiful scenery and fresh air.

Long trip to the reserve is worth the effort. The only problem is the long queues of thousands of visitors, so you have to come with a lot of patience. The reserve is organized to absorb a lot of visitors so there is no long waits.

We had a wonderful trip in Jiuzhaigou Valley. There was no doubt that it was a fairyland on our planet, especially the water there was so clean, really beautiful.
