The scenery here was absolutely mind-blowing. This is not the same as a national park you may see in another country however. Hoards of people, buses and boardwalks make it quite a different experience! But incredible views nonetheless.

Breathtakingly beautiful scenery in autumn but it is way too crowded for the journey to be enjoyable; especially those popular stops. Suggest to go during off peak seasons.

What is the most efficient and reliable way to get around Jiuzhaigou? We have looked at some tour options but prefer to take our time to explore the area and take in the sites and would like the flexibility of getting to the area early before the crowds. Thanks

There are some nice hotels in the Park area. If you stay in town, you can just call a taxi or local driver to take you to the Park. You don't need to take a tour. It's a self guided and you can just follow the map... More
