Nice walk and lovely to feel cooll.

Maybe I went on a wrong day. Maybe the wrong season.I just don't see what's so special about this place. I mean, it's serene. It's clean. And yes, it can be pretty. But will I pay 200++rmb to see it again? No.

Very glad China is protecting this magical place, beautiful woodlands, lakes, meadows, and all its thriving living beings against the backdrop of majestic peaks. Going during off season is a must! Crowd will ruin the enjoyment of its serenity.

THIS national park is located about 30k from Shangri La and is very well frequented. It encompasses an area in total of 300 sq k Within the Park are two major lakes, Shudo lake, and Bita lake.

Don't get me wrong, this place is very beautiful, so beautiful I want to be one of the horses to live there. However, as a tourist, you are restricted where to go and there is no hiking allowed. You would be bused from one spot to the next. Since there are so many tourist around, you have to keep a... More

This is a Chinese style park experience where you get on and off the buses to get around, but the scenery is totally fantastic. I think it is one of the more beautiful forests I've ever seen-- big diversity of trees and plants, and everything covered with Spanish moss. You walk on boardwalks so it is very flat, but the...

This place is very beautiful. But we went there in the end of August beginning of September. It is a raining season so it rained most of the time on the day we visited this park. The flowers were mostly done. I was told June is the best for flowers.

Its a nice place with great scenery. It was raining and cold as its height is more than 3000m. They have their bus that will take you around and then drops you off a 3 different location where you will hike while having sightseeing at the park. Yak, horse and pigs were free to roam around. If you are tired,... More

Beautiful flowers, trees and lots of animals that take no notice of all the people walking past. A well-looked after park. The walkway is a wooden boardwalk all the way round, so easy to manage in under 2 hours circuit.
