at 258RMB, it is pricey. i did trekking on both lakes, and feel both depicts the same view and vibe. perhaps, a cheaper option like separate tickets for each lake, could be an option. btw. was there during dry season, and the park feel lifeless with dry grass etc. i think summer will show the true colour of the park.

If you have ever been hiking in the U.S. anywhere 1.5-2 hours outside a major city, I would skip this. When we went, the tour guides warned us that it would not be lush because the flowers had not yet bloomed. But really, it was just some flat lands and woods (and a lot of cows). You are bussed between... More

April is not the best season to visit this national park. Precisely because of that, there were not many people there when we visited it, and that, in China, was a huge plus and rare event. The trees were not yet turning green and the flowers were not yet blooming, and despite of those, we enjoyed our visit immensely. There... More

Pudacuo National Park is really well-managed and organized. Buses ferrying visitors from base to the park are comfortable. Slow track in the park will take half a day. Views throughout this park are beautiful and breathtaking. Enjoy the clean air as you stroll along.

the park is part of the Parallel Rivers from UNESCO as well it holds AAAAA classification from Chinese Government, so you can expect a very good maintenance and infra-structure. the price is around RMB 150 what is very expensive for Chinese Standards. the park is 30 min driving out of Shangri-la and after arriving to the sight you will then...

We had a day trip to this Potatso National Park. We took the right choice to walk along the park because the scenery is really beautiful with different views. Very clean and enjoyable although walking for long distance.

This park was a good use of a few hours. It's a little annoying that you have to stick to this bus route but you do get stretches of walking with beautiful views. We came in the winter so missed all the fauna, but it was still beautiful. I would suggest that others come in the spring/summer, though, as the... More

Plan to spend a whole day in the park as there is a few places you can take your time to walk about leisurely and enjoy the scenery. One can have lunch within the park as there are a few restaurants.

An easy 3-hour walk with good scenery (at least, for this city-dweller), though I did not manage to visit during its most attractive seasons (spring/summer for flowers, winter for bird-watching). We went early in the morning, so there was some relief from the crowds in between bus loads (the eco-buses that operate within the park only leave when they are... More

We were given 3.5hrs to spend at this wonderful spot. Got a ride on the bus for several times heading to the 1st section where you can opt to walk the 3.3km or continue the ride on the bus (better skip the walking part at 1st part) but do take few photo shots of the area. At least 1hour to... More
