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... More

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... More

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... More

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!!!

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... More

Caught a bus from Xinnanmen Station in Chengdu to Bamboo Sea in south of Sichuan, only to find that rather than going directly to the National Park gates, we got dropped off in the middle of nowhere in a town called Changning Zhuhai. The journey took 5 hours. An hour later an English speaking local helped us catch a public... More

Bamboos, nothing but bamboos. Take the cable car to the top. Try to figure out how the cable car is anchored on the wire. Makes your ride more hair raising. There is a camera near the top. Lookout for it and make a funny face. Will cost you 20 rmb for a printed copy

A hidden yet relaxing place.it offers magnificent bamboo forest view from the cable car. The only minus point is the cable car desperately needs refurbishment and maintenance. If not becos of the view, dun think I will risk my life on it

I visited Shu'nan bamboo forest back in October, 2013 and it is well worth a trip if you are in the area. It is very pretty, and peaceful, but I probably wouldn't say it was worth going out of your way for. We went in very misty weather. It was very atmospheric - on one cable car we literally couldn't...

We arrived at the Bomboo Sea on a rainy, misty day. The weather was terrible and the mist so heavy you looked at everything as if you had on a veil. Still it was magical, temples placed precariously on the cliffs, bamboo forests waving in the wind. I've never been in a place that has so many plants of the... More
