This park is definitely designed for tourists and the entrance prices are too high for what it is. I paid 158 Yuan person for basic entry and my girlfriend paid 145 Yuan as she booked in advance, but this option is only possible for Chinese visitors. There are optional extras such as the rope bridge, glass walkway, and zip line (closed on the day we visited), but these are also costly and we decided to skip them, figuring they would be packed. Foreign visitors are required to fill out a health check form upon entry, whereas Chinese visitors aren’t (no idea why this is), however this only took a couple of minutes and wasn’t too much of a hassle. A bus takes you from the entrance and goes in a long loop, first ascending and then descending the mountain, with various stops along the way. This could either be a fun or hair-raising ride, depending on the driver’s attitude and how squeamish you are, but the scenery along the way is good. At the top of the park is a square and also a pagoda, which was packed with people taking photos. It’s all very touristy, with various food and souvenir outlets selling overpriced goods. The only saving grace of this park, in my opinion, is that it does have a nice scenic trail from the top back down to the ground level. It’s about 2km in total and takes you back to the orchid garden, through wooded areas and past huge boulders. Very nice and peaceful. It took us an hour and a half to complete and we only saw a handful of other people along the way, so it’s a nice option to avoid the tourist groups. Note that there are a lot of steps along the trail, so not suitable for less able-bodied people, but if you can manage it, then do it. Definitely the best part of the experience for me.

Ridiculously overcrowded and convuluted registration process to get inside. Massively overpriced attractions. Blatant racism and discrimination shown against foreigners - they are required to register and have their temperature taken due to COVID-19, but Chinese are not, even though the Chinese border was closed at the time I went and Chinese are the only ones bringing the virus back to China. Avoid this place.

The park offers views of Yalong Bay and has a well maintained tropical forest. Would recommend starting at the peak and working your way down from there to go from the exposed heat to the cooler gardens. The cost is 90 RMB + 50 RMB for entrance and bus in low season. I'm not sure if the bus fee can be waved but it is worth it as there aren't many walkable options to go without. Please note that there are extra activities that cost more to experience like the glass walkway and suspension bridge. After looking at them we thought they were not worth it as it was very busy and the lineups were long. We took a Didi to get here and believe it is worthwhile to visit if you're in the area. It is very easy to avoid the crowds because most are eager to do the bridges and glass walks.

This place was worth it to go and see. If one gets the cheapest ticket, 140 yuan, one will be able go all to the top with the bus. For other things to do such as sliding ropes, water bridge ie. one can buy inside other tickets.Food and drinks are available just in a higher price. The road going up is pretty cool, very steep and curvy. Many Chinese tourist there now.
