Very tranquil area with a relaxed approach to tourism that is hard to find in China. I’d recommend your own transport or get a driver !

Big Spread of Bamboo forest, lots of walking hiking
Dec 2017 • Family
4 hours’ drive from Chengdu, reasonably nice place with a wide spread of bamboo. There is a hiking path. Better to visit in late spring where weather is less wet. I will recommend this place for people who like hiking, not for young children or elderly travelers . There are also lots of lookout stops within the forest for nice picturesque takes.

The hidden gems of Sichuan
Jul 2017 • Family
Had a very splendid tour in this huge national forests full of beautiful bamboo trees. Because of the various places to visit, you must hire a personal car/taxi to have a day tour to all the attractions. Prices vary around 250-300 RMB/day. I especially liked the walk to Xianyu Cave and cliffs (the view from the top is amazing), the bamboo rafting trip at Cinglong Lake (the shooting place of the beautifully shot Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (!)), the cable car trip over the green forest, and the very picturesque Emerald Corridor (Arashiyama what?). A highlight on my trip to Sichuan, this park had won a very special place in my memory. Don't forget to taste the local bamboo cuisine for a unique experience.

Everything is so serene here. Nature's place

I like this place. The bamboos are all so tall, first time seeing so many bamboos. Good for vivid photographers. Not many people so u can slowly enjoy your quiet walk.

Very Beautiful
Nov 2016 • Couples
Just finish visiting today and unfortunately the winter winds from Beijing is causing all the fog preventing photography. Can hardly view anything less than 20 meters. Tour guide still insisted we try bamboo rafting and we went with 3 rafts and our raft was totally lost cos the visibility was so bad. Couldn't see directions and the jetty at all after 5 minutes of rowing. There was also no safety boat that guides us. We were quite panic and row towards the direction where they were shouting at us. Not a good decision when visibility is so bad. Took the cable car later to view the bamboo forest and take note the car can only take 2 person and it's a pretty old one. If by for the fog, the view will be spectacular. Recommend to visit on a good day.

A magnificent not to be missed park
Oct 2016 • Family
In order to explore this place properly, I suggest that you stay overnight in one of the guesthouses/motels inside the park. This will allow you ample time to see all the unique sites. This place is a real gem. It is of course much better if the weather is sunny, but do not be disappointed if it isn't, since the place has a certain beauty with the clouds an mist.
We took both cable cars, which were spectacular. Only when you are in the sky above those 400 meter gorges, you start to understand why this place is called the "Bamboo Sea" and not forest. We hiked along the cliff and stopped in a couple of tea shops, adoring the scenery, the bamboos and the beautiful and very numerous rock carvings. We crossed the two small lakes by bamboo rafts and then went to the waterfalls. This is all pretty easy hike. Then you can easily hitch a ride or pay 20- 30 yuan for a local car to take you to other destinations in the park. Do not miss the museum (intricate bamboo carvings, bamboo scrolls, furniture and weapons) and the "Forget Worries" Gorge, which is next to it and an easy beautiful and tranquil 1 hour walk along a serene narrow valley. The food in the various guesthouses in the park is based on bamboo and local mushrooms and is delicious. Public transportation is readily available and easy to use - no need to rent a private taxi.
A definite highlight.

Beautiful natural place. Bamboo Forest.
Jun 2016 • Friends
Visited this place in June 2016 with my friends. From Yibin it took around 2 hours by car, entry ticket for foreigners is 112 RMB. Emerald Bamboo Gallery, clouds watching pavilion spots are the great things to see. After entering bamboo sea forest we visited giant Buddha statue and temple. The way to that temple is very mesmerizing, view of the whole scenery is very beautiful, it's like heaven. In between there's a lake where you can do boating. Overall experience is very good though is very tiresome to visit places here because it's very big and you have to walk. Highly recommended for hikers. And nature lovers. Sharing some photos hope you will like it. Thanks.

Bamboo Everywhere
Apr 2016 • Friends
Made overnight trip with friends to getaway from city and enjoy serenity. Very pleasant! Left Chengdu, stayed overnight in Yibin, enroute to Zhuhai (as recommended in a travel blog). Would lodge in Zhuhai, Changning next time. Hired a guide just past the park entrance. Well worth it. Saw major sights including Rainbow Waterfalls and Caves. Dense bamboo everywhere-very picturesque, arching canopy effect. Took bamboo boat across lake and walked the trail along the waterfalls, bought bamboo gifts, sat in bamboo chairs, ate bamboo food. We watched boat rowers racing each other across the lake; looked like great fun! The only downer was the traffic jams getting in and out. Luckily, we drove a small car with a tight turn radius. If we didn't have a car, it would have required much walking. Rating: Must See!

You could take a cable car over the bamboo forest, go rafting on bamboo rafts, hike to see the waterfalls and visit the famous "bamboo corridor". Lots of greenery that blends well with fog and sunlight!!!

Great place for hiking and nature
Apr 2015 • Solo
You need to hire a car and driver to get around the huge park. I was able to do this for 240 RMB/$40 for a few hours one day and the whole next day. There are several good trails for hiking along streams through the bamboo forest. There are waterfalls along the streams. Another goes to Rainbow Waterfall, which is the biggest and most beautiful. There's also a trail down and along cliffs, some of which have carvings. It's a refreshing place to be out in nature and hiking. The cableway across the bamboo-covered valley is a beautiful ride. I didn't take the other one because I was told it's not interesting and I didn't have time to do both.
