This is a fairyland UNESCO heritage site with incredibly coloured natural lakes among hills and waterfalls. An autumn visit to here is unforgettable but be prepared to face thousands of visitors like yourselves

One of the most amazing landscape in China! It is far from the nearest big city but worth it! Do not hesitate to go to Huanglong too. It's less crowded and beautiful too Just go there! :)

This Chinese National Park is not easy to get to but the reward of its beauty is worth the effort. We were about a week too early to see the full splendor of the fall colors but nevertheless it was spectacular. For me, the water features were the highlight of the park, lots of waterfalls, and lakes with a beauty... More

Unfortunately, the autuum colors were already almost gone. Nevertheless, the main attraction, the blue and clear lakes, were still stunning. In November, there are still a lot of Chinese tourists in the park. However, if you leave the main tourist route, you'll be alone in the beautiful nature. From mid Novemeber is low season. The entry fee is less and... More

In my opinion, I regard Sichuan Jiuzhaigou as a “must go’’ place, because the scenery there is so amazing that simple words are not able to embody its great beauty. In this summer holiday, I went to Sichuan Jiuzhiagou with great expectations. Unlike the weather in Guangdong province, the weather in Jiuzhaigou is so cool, the temperature is roughly about...

Bus tour come with guide and video explaining each site in the reserve. Proper walking path along the way from site to site. Very beautiful scenery. May pack your own food as lunch or snacks. The only Nuorilang restaurant is not cheap and service really so-so. Only few choices available for ala-carte, unless you want to pay for the buffet... More

U got to be early, to queue. Now is the low session, but crowds were massive! If u are with a group, book a private bus inside and the strategy is to head to the furthest waterfall where there will be minimum crowd and come downwards. If u take the public bus, it extremely crowded and the routes are fixed.... More

Although it is summer, the height of Jiuzhaigou valley is very high, therefor we van feel very cold in the morning, we wear a jacket but still feel cold.... More

Reached the park at 7:30am, and it was not crowded given that the weather has gotten colder and the golden week has just passed. Every site in the park was drop dead gorgeous and literally took my breath away. The colors was amazing, and although there was alot of walking, the sights kept me going. Highly recommended place to visit... More
