This is a gorgeous park with beautiful scenery. but also filled with (domestic) tourists during their summer vacation, families with kids out of school, so there is not a sense of being in a aremote area. Maybe sometime outside of July/August would be better.

Entrance fee is almost 30 Euros, and the park is still very crowded. You can have the same views in the Alpes for free

if you can avoid the crowds this can be an enjoyable days outing.The busing to and fro is a bit tedious for Kiwis used to a less controlled environment but the scenery was worth it. Lots of beautiful wild flowers this time of year.

In summary: You pay ~CNY 250/pax to get on their coach that drops you at 3 points within the park where you can hike on paths built around the lakes, totalling about 7km. The 2nd stop is just a 10min photo stop. The lakes are beautiful, no doubt, but hiking around the 2nd lake, Bitahai(3rd stop), gets rather repetitive as... More

This National Park replete with beautiful lakes and mountains and valleys and with wild yaks similar to the American buffalo could easily be mistaken for Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

The tranquility and natural beauty of this place - 2 very clean and crystal clear lakes plus lots of trees and vegetation are what I liked best. The noisy local tourists who would sneak a smoke here and there in this protected place annoyed me.

This park is breathtakingly beautiful and was definitely the highlight of our trip to Shangri-la. There are 3 parts- make sure you walk the first part, roughly 3km flat, otherwise you'll miss the most beautiful part!gorgeous lakes! Worth taking the ferry for the 3rd part as it gets a bit hot & exhausting as the morning heats up. Highest point... More

This is a huge park with lots of natural beauty to take in. Because of the millions of visitors who come every year, there are park buses that take you around to various stops where you can get off and walk, or wait for the next bus. The paths are nicely laid out to keep people from trampling all over... More

the vast park is serviced by buses that takes you from entrance to other parts, but you need to walk on singular wooden paths to see the sights. The lack of choice in walking path makes this park very uninteresting. There are endless number of people in front of you and behind you. Some of the sights were beautiful, but... More
