Jiuzhaigou Travel Guide: 256 reviews and 865 photos
There are 30,000 visitors descending on Jiuzhaigou every day esp during the peak period of May and October. It is no fun to be squeezed, pushed and herded along and seeing nothing but heads. Getting the ticket pass took an hour. Getting on and off the buses ferrying visitors within the park was also competitive.
However, the park is worth a visit.
But you have to plan & time your visit. Choose off-peak season like in November. Be very early at the gate....taking into account that you have to walk about a km from the bus terminal to the gate of the park.
Take the bus to the highest point and trek down....it is less taxing on your legs. JZG is a 'Y" shaped carved out by two rivers. Take one for each day.
Bring along your lunch and choose one of the many beautiful corners to have your picnic lunch or break. It beats having to make detours to the crowded restaurant for a run-of-the-mill buffet lunch.
Late afternoon is a great time to hangout in JZG because the tourist crowd would be out of the park, leaving the park as it ought to be....serene and meditative.
