February is still cold and the temperature is similar to that of January. During this month, Jiuzhaigou is a kingdom covered with ice and snow, and is quite beautiful, but there is usually no indoor heating. Since it’s very cold in February, you are strongly advised to wear thick clothing or thick feather clothing.
Meanwhile, also bring some convenient food, such as bread, yolk pie, cookies, and so on, in case you can’t find a restaurant when out and about.
The traditional spring festival, i.e., Chinese lunar New Year, and the lantern festival, are during February, making it a perfect time to experience Chinese traditions and culture. There are fewer tourists during this time, so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery without dealing with the crowds. See our Jiuzhaigou Tours.

We''ve planned a trip to Jiuzhaigou 12th Feb 2014. Is it advisable change to around 15 March 2014? Cos Feb is very cold weather. What about the weather in mid-March? Will the scenery be better than in Feb? What kind of clothing to bring along if it''s in March? What about FairyPool Scenic Area - is it open to visitors in Feb or Mar? Or is it only in Sep / Oct? As it''s stated in the itinerary if cannot be visited due to weather, Mouni Valley will replace it for other tours.
Hi Lim, it is very cold in Jiuzhaigou in Febuary, but the snow scenery is fabulous. And the hotel rate is quite low, if you are not afraid of coldness and like snow, you can try in Febuary. Bringing thick down jacket is necessary.
In March, it is warmer but also snow some times. The temperature is between 7 ° C (44.6 ° F). You are suggested to bring a thick coat, a sweater and a long sleeved shirt.
All the scenic areas are open all the year around. If you need any tour service, please feel free to let me know. We will try our best to offer you best route with reasonable price.

Hi, we are planning trip for end of February next year but really is it worth us to see Jiuzhaigou at this time. We have small daughter 2.5yrs old. Are many of the paths blocked or we can still walk many good places to see? Is there sunny days or mostly rainy and windy? thanks
It will be very cold in Jiuzhaigou in February, during this month, Jiuzhaigou is a kingdom covered with ice and snow, you cannot see the colorful view but a pure, sparkling and crystal-clear world. There are will be just one or two hotels available and usually no indoor heating, I am not sure if your 2.5 years’ daughter will like it.

I plan to visit Jiuzhaigou around 25 Feb next year. However I was told that visit to Huanglong during this time will be replaced by Dujiang Weir and Mt. Qingcheng. Are these two places worth the replacement visit to Huanglong? And if the weather is so cold, what is there to see other than ice and snow?
Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our services. My name is Robert Hui. I am a travel advisor at China Highlights. It is my pleasure to assist you about your trip to China.
Yes, the information you got is right, the Huanglong area will be close during this period so your will visit the two places instead.
The Dujiang Weir and Mt. Qingcheng are two historical sites, if you are only interested in the nature scenery, you might feel boring with them. If you like the Chinese culture & religion (the Mt. Qingcheng is one of the source of the Taoism, and the Dujiang Weir is an irrigation infrastructure built in 256 BC during the Warring States Period of China by the Kingdom of Qin).
The weather is cold in Chengdu in February and it will be chilly in Jiuzhaigou. It will be fewer people if you visit there at that time, you can not see the colorful view but a pure, sparkling and crystal-clear world.
By the way, our website provides packages of Sichuan tour, please kindly visit the following page if you are interested in Sichuan tour: http://www.chinahighlights.com/sichuan/tours.htm
Hope it helps.
