Jiuzhaigou Off The Beaten Path: 35 reviews and 49 photos
If one prefers not to enter the crowd with the masses, there is a small trail one can take instead. It is across the man-made creek from the hotel to the left (east) of the main entrance. Following a large black pipe (with thin blue stripe) running along the hllside, one will soon arrive at the park’s wooden lank path. There are probably similar trails on the west side but one would arrive on the park road instead.
Finally, it is said that a section of the Tea-Horse Trail leads from Wanglang Nature Reserve (southwest of Jiuzhaigou) into the park, but that would be considerably tougher, involving hiking some formidable mountain passes.
