Jiuzhaigou Natural Reserve, Jiuzhaigou Reviews

  • We loved our time at Jiuzhaigou! It was so so beautiful! We recommend going very early in the morning and during low season. We went during summer and it was very crowded. We ended up doing the back way route and it was a lot better, almost no one went that way. Also, bring food, as they only sell instant noodles and snacks inside. 100% recommend!! One of the most beautiful places I've ever been to.

  • This is a truly beautiful location worthy a goods few days of visiting. I'm told you really have to see it four times, once for each season but we were there for the freeze. Amazing beauty, but my goodness it was cold. The mist on the water made it seem so much warmer but it wasn't.

  • Jiuzhaigou is a must visit in China. The color of the water is stunning! Ilike winter because a photographer can take his/her time to find a good spot. For reference, there are over 60,000 visitors per day in autumn, and less than 500 visitors in winter. Book a hotel close to the park so that you can walk over.

  • I should come back on autumn

  • The saying ‘A picture tells a thousand stories’ is truer nowhere than Jiazhaigou.
