  • Only one word: stunning. Having traveled many places this park is a jewel. Every turn has a new or different view. It has only recently opened to foreigners but only if they have a PR or work permit.....  more

  • Huge park. Need to take the bus from one venue to another. If the weather is good, you may hop on the bus however many times you like. Unfortunately for us, we only had good weather in the morning...

  • I must say that Jiuzhaigou is one of the most fabulous sites I have ever been to! The site has a lot to offer, from friendly locals to its breathtaking landscape! One of the best parts of Jiuzhaigou that you must check out when visiting is the Nuorilang Waterfall, which will make you feel like you are dreaming with picturesque scenery in almost every corner! However, I think the stuff there is too costly since it is a tourist spot. Besides, the only way to get there is to drive a private car, which takes around eight hours from Chengdu.
  • Jiuzhaigou Valley, eulogized as a world of magical fairytale, has for years enchanted tourists with its mountains and luxuriant forests, colorful lakes, gushing waterfalls and abundant wildlife. To its south is the Huanglong (Yellow Dragon Scenic Area). Jiuzhaigou Valley is located in Nanping County, 450 kilometers (about 280 miles) to the north of Chengdu City, Sichuan, covers a total area of 720 square kilometers and the valley is 50 kilometers in length. In 1992, UNESCO entered this scenic area onto the world natural heritage list.Jiuzhaigou, literally the Nine Village Valley, is hence known for the nine Tibetan villages within its boundary, Inhabited by Tibetans, the nine villages and alpine lakes, are like reflecting mirrors or crystal jade blocks inlaid in snow mountains and forests. Very very Amazing natural scenery
