Amazing Tibet experience in Sichuan
Henry was an informative guide who went out of his way to ensure positive experiences. Mr Wu was not only a safe and attentive driver on sometimes rough roads but also a great photographer, capturing shots of us as we toured. Henry went out of his way to talk to anyone around to help bring the place alive through stories so we had the opportunity to meet so many locals, real people, and hear about their lives. Another highlight was the opportunity to climb a 1000 year old watchtower in Danba and meet the local family who managed it. Truly magical. Henry was also a consummate foodie who provided us with great local food recommendations along the way. more
Itinerary Quick Look
Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.
Upon arrival at Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport, you will be greeted by our local tour guide and driver who will then transfer you to your hotel in Jiuzhaigou 88 km (55 miles) away in 2 hours.
In order to have more time in the park and avoid the crowding, you will start early to discover Jiuzhaigou (‘Nine Village Valley') Scenic Area, a wonderland named for its nine Tibetan villages.
You will visit Jiuzhaigou's three main valleys: Shuzheng Valley, Rize Valley, and Zechawa Valley. There, waiting for your appreciation, is the picturesque natural scenery of clear alpine lakes, overlapping waterfalls, colorful forests, snowcapped mountains, and blue ice.
Private vehicles are not allowed inside, so your guide will expertly direct you in taking the shuttle buses in the scenic area and touring around. A buffet lunch can be arranged in Nuorilang Restaurant, which is the only restaurant in Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area. If you like, we could arrange a picnic lunch instead.
After breakfast, take a 2-hour drive from Jiuzhaigou to Huanglong Scenic Area. Huanglong Valley has one of three most outstanding travertine lake terraces in the world. Colorful pools, snowcapped mountains, verdant forests, and a peaceful valley are Huanglong's four highlights.
To save your energy and time, we will arrange a cable car to the valley top, and then walk down the valley to enjoy the fantastic scenery all around you. After about 3–4 hours sightseeing in the valley, we will leave the park and enjoy a local lunch outside.
At the end of the tour, your guide will escort you to Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport to catch a late afternoon or evening flight to your next destination. To allow enough time for Huanglong, a flight departing after 5pm is suggested.
