A couple of days after our visit to the Jiuzhaigou Scenic Valley, we arrived at the Huanglong National Park. The entrance is located at an elevation of about 3,200 meters, and the highest point of the park, the Multi-Colored Pond, is about 3,600 meters. You can walk up there, which is about 3-4km one way, or you can take a... More

Imagine a Yellow dragon taking a shower at a waterfall. This is the beautiful view of Huanglong, where the water trickles down the scaly back of the yellow dragon. You can be walking right in the middle of the pools and get up and close to them. Be careful not to fall in when you get as close to ledge... More

Recommended to spend half a day in this park to appreciate the beauty and pace the walk. Better to ride the cable car vs walking up the steps all the way to the top. From the cable car, you have to start walking for about 40 minutes to an hour (depending on individual) before you reach the colorful ponds. Trip... More

Great scenery there.. N then walk fr an hour to get to the calcified ponds.. The scenery at the ponds is too beautiful. My he... More

The cable car ride up and down costs 80 and 40 yuan respectively. If you go in the morning the queue is long but not as bad as in the afternoon when it snakes around a long, long way. There is nothing to see along the walk up to the multi coloured pool. It is a long, arduous climb for... More

We visited this place after Jiuzaigou. It has its own beauty but I think Jiuzaigou is much more mesmerizing. The pools are one of a kind n definitely worth a visit.

We had only about 4 hours to visit which was enough to walk up and down (no cable car) take lots of pictures and stop for lunch. The walk up isn't hard - it's about 400 m of elevation gain over 4 km and the whole path is wooden.

We landed at the airport early in the morning. Decided to take the bus(360rmb for 3 of us ladies) instead of a private car (400rmb with unlimited time) because of the safety in number. It covered our trip to Huanglong, 4 hours waiting, and then 2 hours to Jiuzhaigou. The driver took 12 of us to a shop for jackets... More

Very beautiful place. If you use cable car to go up, the journey isn't difficult at all. Also, first third id beautiful forest. But when you get to the main part, it's just "wow". And like that all the way down.

Today my boyfriend and I visited HuangLong. I can say it is one of the most amazing nature wonder I have ever seen and the blue pools covers huge area of the nature reserve park. This is a must see place of interest if you go to Jiuzhaigou/ Sichuan in China. How we get there: As I speak mandarin, I... More
