Breath-taking views! So worth traveling from east of china just to watch it! But be prepared, the food they sell in the valley isn't tasty and very expensive. Also, bring hand soap with you, there are none in the bathrooms. Worth taking the buses to the top (the right and left roads) and then walking down by foot. Just amazing!... More

My friend and I were looking forward to visiting the juizhaigou park in Sichuan. What a disappointment... We've been literally queueing for 20 km on the path. This is no joke. Impossible to find a quiet place to rest and enjoy the beautiful landscape. We were really frustrated. Besides, it is expensive (310 yuan) and the buses are so noisy... More

This park is really astonishing. No words are enough to describe the emotion you can find in every tree lake and scenario inside the park. If you like photography you can spend here a whole life

A must see if you are in Sichuan Province. Many people come as part of a multi-day tour through China, or this region, but we went by ourselves and arranged for a taxi from our guesthouse. The park is gorgeous. The water is pristine because of the government protection of this area. It is almost incomprehensible how blue the freshwater... More

Jiuzhaigou is one of the most beautiful national parks I have seen so far. No wonder it is called the "Yellowstone of China". I will certainly recommend to others - totally worth a visit even though it can be quite crowded. But if you are in China, there will be almost no place that is not crowded. My two cents... More

Instead of taking the bus, go walk. It gives you peace and quiet in crazy China. You can always take the bus from where you can choose to go to the right one to the left. This is one of the best places I visited in China so far. It is really beautiful and definitely worth the hike. Start early,... More

No doubt Jiuzhaigou is one of the most stunning scenery spots in China. it's scenery differs in four seasons, however it looks most beautiful in Autumn when the leaves turned gold and red, decorating by other colors, the whole valley looks like god's palette.

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.
