JIUZHAIGOU 九寨沟 TRAVEL GUIDE

Jiuzhaigou, meaning Nine Village Gully refers to the nine Baima Tibetan villages that can be found in the valley. This is one of China's scenic gems tucked away in the mountains of Sichuan. The forests are lush, the mountains high and the water not only crystal clear but in many places a very attractive light blue colour.

TOP ATTRACTIONS IN JIUZHAIGOU

Jiuzhaigou is deservedly popular and can get very busy especially with local tourists. There is an efficient hop on and off bus network through the park making it easy to see all that is on offer in a day. However, if you walk between drop off points it is almost possible to feel you have the place for yourself. Unfortunately, overnight stays in the park are not allowed.


OUR TOP JIUZHAIGOU TRAVEL TIPS

Well worth the time and expense to get here Jiuzhaigou should be considered as an add-on to any trip that also visits the provincial capital of Chengdu. Almost always booked in conjunction with Huanglong.


HAND PICKED JIUZHAIGOU HOTELS

Jiuzhaigou has a bit of a hotel problem as there are only a limited number of options but huge demand from local Chinese tourists. Consequently prices are very high and standards quite often low. We recommend booking the best hotels if you want to visit here and we think the Jiuzhaigou Sheraton Resort is the best on offer.
