“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The park have a commuter bus that include in the entrance tickets. The ticket price 258 rmb. The first bus stop is shudu lake. The view is very beautiful. There are many flower, yak, horses and pig around the lake. There is 3 km wooden path to walk by the lake. After that we ride the bus and stop at militang grassland. The scenery is also beautiful. The bus waits for us to take photos then we go to baita lake. This lake is also beautiful and has a wooden path too. Unfortunately it was rain during my visit there and i could not enjoy the scenery. So it is better to visit it in may where the sky is clear and the grasses are green

“Great scenery”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

if you can avoid the crowds this can be an enjoyable days outing.The busing to and fro is a bit tedious for Kiwis used to a less controlled environment but the scenery was worth it. Lots of beautiful wild flowers this time of year.

“Visit if you are in the area and have time.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

In summary: You pay ~CNY 250/pax to get on their coach that drops you at 3 points within the park where you can hike on paths built around the lakes, totalling about 7km. The 2nd stop is just a 10min photo stop. The lakes are beautiful, no doubt, but hiking around the 2nd lake, Bitahai(3rd stop), gets rather repetitive as there is really not much difference compared to the first one, Shudu Lake.

“Magnificent Views Reminiscent of Yellowstone”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This National Park replete with beautiful lakes and mountains and valleys and with wild yaks similar to the American buffalo could easily be mistaken for Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

“Nature at its best!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The tranquility and natural beauty of this place - 2 very clean and crystal clear lakes plus lots of trees and vegetation are what I liked best.
The noisy local tourists who would sneak a smoke here and there in this protected place annoyed me.
