Travel with Rita: 3 Days Huanglong & Jiuzhaigou Classic Tour from Chengdu

Tour date: Sep.15-17, 2016

I didn’t know why I just wanted to go to the fairyland very much when I was pregnant in 5 months. After talking with my husband, we decided to go when it was on the Mid-autumn festival with 3 days holiday time.

Day1   Chengdu – Huanglong – Jiuzhaigou 

To avoid the traffic jam during the holiday time, we started early in the morning. After around 6 hours driving from home, we reached Songpan Ancient town. We had lunch there and then went to Huanglong National Park trough Xuebao Peak (Xuebao Snow Mountain). It was beautiful and amazing in Autumn, I felt relaxed and didn’t feel pressure of the high altitude.

Day2    Jiuzhaigou National Park

Today, get up early, and went to the fairyland Jiuzhaigou Valley which is well-known not only as a national park, but also a UNESCO World Heritage. Having been hidden as a mysterious and never been bothered by outsider until been found in the middle of 20th century, all the forests, lakes, waterfalls, landforms in the national park still remains the wild original looks. It gets its name from having Nine Tibetan Fortified Villages in the region.

Jiuzhaigou is known for having the most beautiful waterscape in China which is hidden in three beautiful valleys – Rize ValleyShuzheng Valley and Zechawa Valley. It presents various color patterns of white, blue, green, turquoise and emerald in different season. According to the statistics, there are 114 lakes, 47 springs, 17 groups of waterfalls, 11 rapids and 5 tufa shoals within three valleys. We took the regular travel route to visit the Shuzheng Valley after entering the park, next go to Zechawang Valley on the west, and last tour the Rize Valley by taking the sightseeing bus to save energy and time.

Stayed overnight in Qian He International Hotel.
