It's a gorgeous pace to visit in the winter, the yellow and blue contrast perfectly with the dark forest and white snow!

But, at the moment there is no bus there from Songpan because of a landslide just past the park. You have to pay for a taxi. I paid 200rmb to go there and come back and he waited for four hours, it'll be cheaper to share with others if you can find people.

It's worth it though!

This parc, even if easily done in 4 hours, is a must see in the area. If you go early at the opening of the parc you will be able to avoid the crowd and enjoy it much more in my opinion!

On a 2nd day we climbed on jeeps to Xueshan Ridge (Snow Mountain Ridge), the highest point on the road to Huanglong National Reserve. After one hour, we reached the altitude of 4007m and enjoyed incredible views of mountains and clouds resting on them. Having made several dozens of photos, we continued to Huanglong.

The huge 3.6 km long valley with yellowish calcium carbonated soil resembles a golden dragon flying over the mountains with incredibly picturesque ponds and waterfalls. That is how it got its name - Huanglong (Yellow Dragon).

Inside the park a cable-car took us to the valley with amazing travertine colorful ponds with crystal clear water. What can you do when you see all this beauty? Just stand and open your eyes and jaws wide! No words can describe it, you simply need to pack your backpacks and fly here.

The price is 100 RMB,

We walked up and then down again, including breakfast and lunch time, photos etc it should take max 5 hours for fit people. We didn't need extra oxygen.

I can't believe this is China. Beautiful scenery and fresh air. The mountains have snow on the tops and green trees covering the areas further down. There are even birds and squirrels running around if you keep an eye out. The beautiful coloured waters and picturesque waterfalls are amazing. Highly recommended trip. Beware wife and kid both had a little altitude issue.
