I can't believe this is China. Beautiful scenery and fresh air. The mountains have snow on the tops and green trees covering the areas further down. There are even birds and squirrels running around if you keep an eye out. The beautiful coloured waters and...More

I visited the valley in the middle of May, my fault for sure. Unfortunately it's still dried up, hardly any water in the rivers and lakes. It kind of makes you sadder because you get a glimpse of how it could look like in it's...More

Nice Park, fresh air and well maintained. A lot of beautiful sites. You have to walk from point to point, no public transportation. Trails are on wooden platforms (easy). The drawback is, this place is not for everyone. The tour agency that I booked from...More

I think this park has lots of potential when there's water everywhere. But in April, there's only water at the top and the rest of the park on the way down is kind of uninteresting and depressing, probably not worth the steep entrance and transportation...More

Unless you have known problem for altitude you should not worry. The cost of O2 can varies from RMB60 to 120. Also they have Oxigen bars at few places in Huanglong, cost of which is also not very high.
