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.

This is still of the the top tourist spot for China. Yes, avoid the peak seasons, ie. China golden week. I have had seen photos taken from various seasons, they are not to be missed. The said best time for visit is around the corner, so don't miss it. But beware of sudden drop in temperature. The first time I... More

I swear that every person on summer break in China was here. I counted over a hundred buses at most of the main stops. This has become so overcrowded and 'tourist oriented' that I stopped going with the group and just enjoyed the mountain environment on my own. The overall high mountain environment was reminiscent of the California High Sierras.... More

The area is really huge, and it is really pretty. There are several waterfalls, and colorful lake. We were there for a whole day from morning until late afternoon. Please make sure to full-in your stomach before the visit, as the food inside were not really appealing. We end up ate instant noodle, as we don't really want to eat... More

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.
