  • 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...

  • An amazing nature reserve. No other place like this on earth. This is a place where eco tourism is set at high standard. Nature kept as it is. There are several good hotels at the base camp area.
  • Jiuzhai Valley is a must-visit destination in China. Here, water shows stunning variety of colors and forms (some of which, I believe, can rarely be seen elsewhere). I wish there were more vantage points from which visitors can get panoramic views of the lakes and other water features. There is an extensive boardwalk system in the park, though you will have difficulty finding real trail experiences. Shuttle buses are easy to use, but can become packed. Try arriving early to avoid the crowds (momentarily).
