A secret treasure that must be kept pristine for future generations to marvel over when they get a chance to go to this part of China. Some of the Hotels need to be upgraded to cater for people other than the Chinese population, especially in the foods available. Need to take the whole day-rise early and wear warm clothing especially... More

The travertines dazzles with aquamarine pools. These calcite shelves roll down mountain sides like winding scales flanking the spines of dragons. Huanlong means 'Golden Dragon' - how apt when you gaze down these saucer-shaped terraces from up high. When I visited, the terrace pools were not particularly deep, and there were vast areas devoid of water. Perhaps it would have... More

When we arrived in Jiuzhaigou, we didn't know anything about Huanglong, other than that it was the name of the airport. As it turns out, it is also an amazing natural park near the airport, well worth a visit to anyone in Jiuzhaigou! I would highly recommend booking your departing flight in the evening, that way you can spend the... More

My family of 4 visited on 22 May, leaving our hotel in JZG at 6.30 am and arriving at the park entrance about 9.15 am. To reach Huan Long, our mini-van had to ascend and descend stretches of mountain roads, with a beautiful landscape of morning sun, mist on some roads, small herds of black-coloured cows and greenery from the...

We only had the morning to explore this valley, but managed to do it all in 3 hours. Purchased tickets, caught a bus, got on a cable car, then walked for an hour before finally reaching the pools at the top of the valley. These were stunning colours of different blues due to the minerals in the water. Further down... More

We took the cable car up. From there it's a pretty easy one hour walk to the top of the valley. The valley is at 3,500m and you'll probably feel the altitude. Steady walking and you should be fine. Many people were wasting money on oxygen and so called 'medicine'. You can't acclimatise within the day, regardless of walking up... More

We visited Huanglong on April 23rd. We flew from chengdu to Huanglong airport. There is an airport mini bus that takes tourists to Huanglong, wait at the parking lot for 4 to 4.5 hrs, and then drive the group to Jiuzhaigou. The bus will only leave when full. This trip was priced at Rmb100. It took about 1hr to get... More
