We arrived at Jiuzhaihuan airport and immediately went off to Huanglong. We took the cable car up the mountain having had to wait in line for approximately 45 minutes. Each car takes only eight people but the turn-around is very quick. Once again, despite the...More

Our hotel (Sheraton Jiuzhaigou) organized a taxi to take us to Huanglong and then onto the airport (500RMB). As the driver didn’t speak English, we ensured that the price was agreed before we left the hotel. We left the hotel at 8.30 and our flight...More

The first review gives a good overview of the site but, to my mind, overstates the effects of oxygen deprivation. We visited the park with a party with an average age of around 60. Three or four women elected not to even attempt to walk...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.
