Zhuo Ma's homestay is as real as it gets for experiencing Jiuzhaigou. This wonderful Ethnic Tibetan family homestay is surrounded by misty mountains, and every morning you will wake up at sunrise to the crow of the rooster. The family is warm and friendly, and does an amazing job of organizing transportation to all scenic areas. Food is fresh and... More

Or stay at most 1 night if you really want to experience how Tibetans live in this area. Otherwise, this place is overpriced for what it offers IMO (no WiFi, too isolated). The food that's included is good, but dishes get repetitive if you stay 2 or 3 nights. Zhuo Ma (the only English speaker of the family) now lives... More

If you want to escape the hordes of tourists in Jiuzhaigou town and are looking for more relaxing and authentic accommodation, then this small place in a nice side-valley is an excellent choice! We stayed there for 3 nights, visited the (stunning, but unfortunately heavily overcroweded) Jiuzhaigou National Park and did some relaxing hiking around the area of the home-stay... More

We stayed 3 days in late August this year at Zhuo Ma's, in our visit to Jiuzhaigou national park. This home stay is not that cheap (200 yuan/person and night), but includes breakfast, dinner and a small lunch bag (convenient for the visit of Jiuzhaigou national park, where the food is rare and expensive). The 3-beds room is OK, with... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Zhou Ma's homestay, Ke Zhu and Ama are awesome! They both try their hardest to learn and speak a little english and are always nice and happy. Ama prepared lovely homecooked meals every day. The house is quite far from the park, so you really have to rely on the transfer service of Khe... More

We stayed at Zhuo Ma's homestay for two nights in June and thorough enjoyed our stay. Zhuo Ma, it appears, doesn't live at the home, but her mother and other family members do. Zhuo Ma's mother - "Ama" - was exceptionally welcoming and went out of her way to make us comfortable in her home. Even though she spoke little... More

I have had many home stay experiences in China, including the Tibetan part, and Zhuo Ma has been the worst. Though it is appreciable in the Jiouzhaigou area as it is far from the touristic area, Zhuo Ma is not welcoming at all!!!! Do prefer the youth hostels in Penfeng, where you will find helpful and nice people. The purpose... More

After making a clear plan with the woman from Zhuo Ma, I flew to Jiuzhai airport, and explained to the shared van driver to drop me off at a particular intersection as instructed by the person from Zhuo Ma. From there I was supposed to call Zhuo Ma... but their phone was off. I stood at the intersection AS INSTRUCTED... More

Having lived for a whole year in Shanghai, last June - 2014 - I decided it was time to regain and to nourish my relationship with Mother Nature. Where else if not in the 'Eden of China'? Jiuzhaigou, here I come. When the bus from Chengdu entered the 'Village' I was puzzled: buses, cars, people (a lot!), fancy hotels. Not... More
