At times we went for hours without seeing another person. On this trip, we stayed away from the Tibetan villages and instead concentrated on viewing the untouched nature. In many places, the water looked green, likely due to all the surrounding greenery, and in other...More

Jiuzhaigou China’s most impressive natural wonders and several UNESCO World Heritage sites. As Canadian, I love the Jasper and Banff national park without any questions. Once you visited the Jiuzhaigou in Si-Chuan province, then you will realize that there is a paradise on earth. This...More

The park is pretty, but it is also expensive and over crowded. Be prepared to follow a long line of people yelling, screaming, spitting and smoking (even though you are not supposed to smoke in the park) Not really worth the expense. Little English spoken...More

I went as part of a group tour, with my husband and young son. I've heard lots about the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve, and pre-earthquake, it must have been a wonderful place to hike and spend some time in amazing scenery. It's still beautiful, and breathtakingly...More

Overpriced and ruined by the earthquakes. You are much better off going to Huanglong which is less stressful to go to and does not have the visitor limit. It is crucial to book months in advance if you want to visit Jiuzhaigou. It can be...More

Dear drt7uk, Thank you for your question. The Jiuzhaigou National Park hasn't re-opened yet. And the official opening date hasn't been announced, too. Best regards, Odynovo

Hi, the park is closed now. I was planning to visit from 11/12 to 11/15 and was about to book a hotel and called the hotel. The hotel personnel told me the park is closed and may not be open until December 2018.
