Many pools were dried up and only a few were filled. It wasn't worth the massive price i feel when u compare it to jiuzhaigou. Go during the right time and it'll be amazing i guess.

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.
