At 460 RMB for a tour from Aershan, this place isn't exactly cheap. The tour is probably the most convienient option. Once you get there, buses will shuttle you around the park stopping at all of the sites of interest. If you go quickly and early you should be able to sqeeze the majority of sites in. Some really awsome... More

This natural park is beautiful. Not many people here during May 1st holiday. However, it would be very busy during summer time, according to local people. The accommodation in the park is not too good, but still some OK guesthouse there. Food would be expensive in some restaurants, better check the rate before order. Shettle bus ONLY operate in summer... More

This is a new national park with new tourist facilities: accommodations, information services, park facilities for visitors, etc. The government has done a good job of helping a large region recover from severe deforestation (the boreal forest is now 15 years old) and of preparing the large area for tourists, as many as 10,000 per month during the summer high...

Don't get me wrong. It is beautiful inside the park, but not wonderful, as least not as I expected. Tianchi Lake (阿尔山天池) is the most famous place inside the park. But it actually does not worth the time and effort to climb up ~1000 stairs to see this body of water. While Tuofengling Tianchi Lake (驼峰岭天池) is much more beautiful.... More

Perhaps not the easiest place to get to for a foreigner, but worth the effort if you can. A nature photographer's paradise. I hired a car in ArongQi and toured the north-west of Inner Mongolia for a week, culminating in a drive through the Arxan National Park. Of course autumn is a good time to do national parks in the...

The National Park is absolutely beautiful in summer. The view of the open grassland, the Mysterious Heavenly Lake, the ponds and the Halaha river are just breathtaking. The park is about 2-3 hours drive from the town of Aershan. The drive is quite bumpy...but upon reaching the location it is all worth it. Entrance to the park is 180yuan. Facilities... More
