Whatever you do don't miss this park. Enter the park as early as you can. We walked most of the Rize Valley. We saw most of the Zechawa Valley from the scenic bus then we walked most of ShuzHeng Valley back.

Went to Jiuzhaigou from Chengdu. The ride on the bus is long, but very well worth it! The reserve offers wonderful views of an impressive amount of natural sights. A lot of walking opportunities. As a photographer, I was fascinated by the new picture opportunities every few meters. To escape the bus loads of Chinese tourists, just take the path... More

Loved the place! It definitely was the highlight of our trip to Sichuan. The beautiful turquoise lakes, the shoal, the cascading waterfalls, the brooks along the way as you climb, the surrounding mountains & trees give the feeling of being reborn in a completely new world. If it were not for the throngs of tourists around, I’d feel like I’ve... More

We found this place through Trip Advisor. having never previously known of its existence and it was worth the trip west to get there. The whiole Jiuzhaigou experience was brilliant- not just the Nature Reserve. Lots of stunning scenery and great food and people. The Park is so well maintained and an area of almost supernatural beauty. Inside the park... More

Many interesting spots in Jiuzhaigou Valley. From the ticket counter, we take a shuttle bus to the main gate. Furthermore, with another shuttle bus, we go to each spot, we recommend starting from the top, namely Primeval Forest. The most interesting is the Five Flower Lake, the lake where the water is crystal clear blue. Generally, the scenery is presented... More

This place is just stunning beauty. Great crystal clear blue lakes, magnificent waterfalls, and great tree foliage. The park is big, so prepare for a lot of walking, or even a lot of time on the park bus trying to get from place to place The restaurants here are poor though. I only had the complimentary buffet in the main... More

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect such beauty tucked away in a little corner in China (maybe my dreams are not very wild to begin with), but this place was absolutely breathtaking. Set in the mountainous regions of Western China, there is such a variety of sights to be seen within such a small area due to the... More

The place was so calmed and amazing..the reserves is maintaining its natural beauty. We had a full day enjoying the mountainous view, the lakes and the waterfall were really a little piece of heaven. Fully recommended....
