We visited in mid September and we were rewarded with beautiful snow clad mountains that added to the beauty of the place. Was really very glad we made this trip. We took the cable car up to the top of Huanglong so that we could have a relatively relaxing walk downhill. When we alighted from the cable car at the... More

A really wonderful day in the park. You can enjoy wonderful views, an amazing nature and a good organization. I suggest to go up by cable car and come back by walking. It took around 5 hrs if you like to take photos

Plan on two nights at the hotel by the gondola to truly enjoy this expansive, breathtaking park. Set aside a half day for the drive between Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong - you will cross several passes - two of which are close to 4000 M in elevation. The passes were beautiful and ringed by snow capped peaks - 5000 M peaks... More

Often neglected when compared to Jiuzhaigou, Huanglong is totally worth the visit. A lot smaller than Juizhaigou, this valley offers great views of limestone pools and the surrounding mountains. The water flows down this wonderful valley and created wonderful pools of crystal clear water. The colored ponds at the end of the valley are wonderful. Don't take the cable car,... More

黄龍国家風景区  九寨溝の中心からは130kmと遠い。 九寨溝の新九寨賓館で、TAXIをチャーターしていただき黄龍へむかう。 TAXIの運転手さんは、奥様同伴^^ 奥様の実家が黄龍だとのこと。ほほえましい限りです。 朝7時に出発し、九寨溝機場との分かれ道まで1時間半。そこから川主寺を経由していく。残りは40km。 9:15頃、途中の峠でちょっと休憩&写真撮影(^^) 黄龍風景区の入口に到着したのは9:45でした。 入場料は200元。ゴンドラ(索道)代80元のSETになります。 私は平日に行ったので空いていましたが、休日はかなりの混雑なのでしょう。 ゴンドラは一気に頂上付近まで上がります。標高4000m超で、酸素吸引処が整備されていますよ。 風景区はとにかく圧巻の景色。索道上站からは徐々に下っていきます。 一番奥の五彩池周辺がBESTでしょうか。五彩池に到着は11:05.1時間ちょっとの散策です。私が行った夏8月でも気温は13℃でした。 五彩池からは徐々に下っていきます。 途中にある黄龍中寺に、ちょっとしたCafeがあります。 ここからは下り下りです。随所に黄龍らしい池が点在していますので飽きませんよ。 金沙舗地は見ごたえありです。 総計約4時間で黄龍の本来の入口(索道ができる前はこちらが本入口)まで戻ってきました。 最終地点に郵局とスナック屋さんがありますよ。 黄龍遊客中心は、1Fが案内処、2Fが食堂になっていました。 ゆっくり見ても4時間あれば堪能できると思います。 高地ですので体調を考慮して、ゆっくり歩くのがよいでしょう。 絶景です!! 個人的には九寨溝より黄龍をお勧めしますよ(^^) Yellow dragon nation scenery ward  It is far from the center of 九寨溝 with 130km. I have you charter TAXI in 新九寨賓館 of 九寨溝 and sit at the yellow dragon. As for the driver of TAXI,... More

Lakes in Huanglong is different from those in Jiuazhaigou Scenic Area.The lake terrace and the wall of the waterfalls are made of limestone. You need to climb hundreds of wooden steps to reach the top. Many people suggest you to bring an oxygen bottle or oxygen water. If you are in a healthy condition, those are not necessary. They also... More

I visited this last Wednesday (29th June 2016) and I liked the views especially the cave however because of the high altitude it is likely you will need an oxygen can. I needed it! So I recommend buying one before entering and if not purchase one inside.

This place makes for a good day trip from jiuzhaigou or for a good stopover on the way to jiuzhaigou from the airport (get your driver to wait the 4 hours you need to check this park out then travel onwards to your jiuzhaigou hotel). I would strongly recommend taking the cable car almost to the top. That way you... More

HuangLong can be visited independently on a day trip from SongPan. The only direct bus leaves SongPan's bus station at 6am; it then takes an additional hour picking up passengers from places along the main road and it arrives in HuangLong at around 8am, just in time the ticket office opens. No need to buy the ¥31 ticket in advance,... More
