If you love adarces, you should visit Huanglong as they have nice adarce formations with crystal clear waters. Thought it would be a rainforest like kind, but surprisingly the board walk made it all ok. The climb can go a little tiring, but the air's...More

We got a driver from airport to Huang Long then JZG Sheraton for 600RMB. The ride from the airport to Huang Long is about 1.5 hours - if you have a tendency for motion sickness - get yourself mentally prepare. Cable car up, 2 km...More

We definately enjoyed Huanglong more than Jiuzhaigou (which is in general more famous). There are much less people in Huanglong and it is smaller, so you have time to really enjoy everything and you don´t need to hurry (as we had to in Jiuzhaigou, because...More

We took a cable car up there and walk down from there. I was very dissappointed, as it might just be a dry season. Not much to see and most importantly, a very long exhausting endless walk. You just have to keep going and going...More

This is a nice addition to visit when you go to Jiuzhaigou. There are good nature trails which highlight the azure blue pools, and it is a good place to spend a couple of hours. Unfortunately, our flight from Chengdu was delayed and we arrived...More

We went there before the rainy season so almost no water in Huanglong. We were so disppointed. The best season to go there is October. Even in these conditions, we really like the place, we could imagine how amazing it is with full of water....More

And if you've come this far, maybe you're willing to come a little further (from movie “The Shawshank Redemption”). If you are already in JiuZhaiGou, you should also visit Huanglong, a beautiful place, only 2.5 hours drive away, and only 1 hour from the airport....More

Was so surprised to find such a beautiful area right in the middle of China. The beautiful snow capped mountain and prismatic springs remind me of the Tetons and yellowstone, perhaps more beautiful. Very well run and maintained, kids would have liked to explore the...More

To get up here, you need really good health. The mountains are extremely high, and the cable car they've installed now rises extremely fast. Luckily, they have oxygen supply areas and tanks. The walk down takes at least, 3, I repeat at LEAST three hours....More

Hi Yuval, personally I won't bring 2-3 year old kids. They cannot express themselves clearly if something is bothering them. Altitude sickness can effect anyone regardless what your background is and it is very dangerous for... More

You can rent private cars, which can give you more leisure with your times, because if you take the public buses, you are timebound, which means you will be rushed. If you are not a hiker like me, this is not the best... More

Unless you have known problem for altitude you should not worry. The cost of O2 can varies from RMB60 to 120. Also they have Oxigen bars at few places in Huanglong, cost of which is also not very high.
