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

If you have nothing better to do for a day, then this may be for you. In our opinion, the scenery, while very nice is nothing spectacular. We did the 3km walk around the first lake from where you are taken by bus to the second lake. Here, you can elect to walk a further 4km or take the ferry... More

Great as it was to see the lovely wilderness, do not however expect to see animals. Birds, maybe if you are in the right season. People there were plenty but the arrangements are superb so you don't feel the press of the crowd. A little steep price wise at 230 RMB per head and this was discounted due to the... More

I was so disappointed of this experience because I come from Romania were places like this you can see almost everywhere in Transylvania...and for free. Also...they have buses (not eco) and you are not aloud to walk on the grass...only on the wood paved alley. Also it was crowded and I understand that for chines people could be nice since... More

Every body should visit it in the morning before the sunrise. It s soo beautiful and huge. Dont know how to describe. The photos I took explains it. A famous Chinese TV host and singer married in here. And they chose it for a reason. I will come back again definitely in the future.

The nature is obviously beautiful. It is better to go after May, as in May many trees and flowers were not green yet. It is a bit sad that you have to follow the modern wooden road and you can't step into the nature. You will see some buffalo, cows, birds, etc. The lakes are amazing. Bring very warm clothes... More

The Pudacuo National park is very beautiful - No doubt but the way the arrangements are made really sucks , you feel that you have been on an interstate bus ride , the tickets are expensive ,approx USD 43 per person which does not justify the trip inside.The Shudu lake and other few lakes are very beautiful and there is...

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
