Tourist Trap, but VERY cool!!

You'll have to take a bus from either Chengdu or Yibin to get to this place, but it's actually pretty cool if you can get here! I'd recommend you or someone in your party come armed with passable Chinese, because this place isn't exactly swimming with foreigners or people who can speak English. Another recommendation is to either come with a car or hire people within the park to drive you places - either way, you'll need Chinese. This is a MASSIVE park - you'll need at least two days to see the essentials. Luckily, there are lots of hotels / hostels to stay in within the park itself. There will be people waiting just in the gate to try and get you to stay in their place. We stayed at the Wenxing Shanzhuang - pretty cheap at 100 yuan for three people, but there were some bug issues and a squat toilet, and no drinks available for purchase besides hard liquors. No frills, so to speak. See as many of the waterfalls and mountains as you can - forget the lakes. You can see one of them, but if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Lake surrounded by bamboo. Woohoo. Take the cable car in the center of the park from the TOP TO BOTTOM, not bottom to top. The views are stunning!! This place reminds me (shout out to the LOTR nerds) of Mirkwood. It's a really disorienting place because of its size and the similarity of the landscape. Bamboo as far as the eye can see in every direction - rising and falling with the landscape - you'd be totally lost if not for the path. It's quite beautiful, actually. The red cliffs are striking, and you can purchase a variety of wild mushrooms and bamboo leaf tea for pretty good prices, actually! The bamboo leaf tea is quite nice actually, if you steep it at 80-83C. I would definitely go again - I'd say May is the best time to visit this place. Any later, like during the summer, it'd be unbearable with the heat, but I hear the waterfalls and lakes and streams are fuller at that time. It's a cool place!
