  • An amazing nature reserve. No other place like this on earth. This is a place where eco tourism is set at high standard. Nature kept as it is. There are several good hotels at the base camp area.
  • A beautiful park if I must say. In all seasons it’s pretty beautiful. I joined a local tour , comprising a 10 hour bus ride from Chengdu. We only had one day to spend in JZG but boy was it beautiful! Snow capped mountains, light blue lakes, ive never seen so many waterfalls before. December 2019
