We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Jiuzhaigou Travel Guide
Jiuzhaigou Location:
Jiuzahigou, formerly called Nanping County, is a county located in west part of China and north of Sichuan province. The county consists of nine villages in a valley in Sichuan Province.

History:
Historically, Jiuzhaigou has been home to small population of Tibetan and Qing people, and provides a good opportunity to get to know more about the locals' unique life and culture.
Jiuzhaigou Valley was enregistered in 1992 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and became a World Biosphere Reserve in 1997. Having first been designated as a national park by the Chinese Government in 1982, and opened two years later as an official tourist site.

Transportation:
There are plenty of taxis in Jiuzhaigou. There are also mini-buses (they really are minivans) to the most popular tourist destinations in the Jiuzhaigou region. Car Rentals are also available and range from 500 - 900 RMB per day.

Since there are a number of attractions around Jiuzhaigou, some visitors prefer to drive there by themselves or hire a car. However, unless you are skilled driver, it is recommended that you hire someone who is familiar with the local conditions, since some sections of the road are hazardous and especially dangerous at night.

Hotels:
There are plenty of places to stay near Jiuzhaigou, though you can't actually stay inside the park itself. The dominant trend is toward higher-end luxury, allowing busloads of visitors to have the best of nature and of civilization, too. If you're looking for budget digs, options exist but are somewhat limited.

For budget travelers, the Qianhe International Hotel in Zhangzha, about 1.5 km from the park's entrance gate, is a good bet, as are the Jiugong, New Jiuzhai and Gesang hotels. Most of them offer rooms as low as RMB 220 nightly. If you're looking for luxury, try the five-star Sheraton Jiuzhaigou Restort or Intercontinental Jiuzhai Paradise Resort; rooms tend to start around RMB 800 a night.

Dining:
Due to the high elevation, Jiuzhaigou faces special difficulties with dining. Goods and other life needed products have to be transferred from nearby towns and villages.
Xiaobu Snack is located in the right of the gate of Jiuzhaigou park. In the small restaurants, local tibetan food will be offered.

Nightlife:
Visitors can relax and enjoy a rich and interesting nightlife after their tours in jiuzhaigou.
You can enjoy the exotic dancing and singing performance of local Tibetan and Qiang people. There are wonderful performances in Jiuzhai Paradise Theater every night.
If you want to spend a quiet night after the day's tour, you can go to Bianbian Street to sample a cup of unique Tibetan coffee leisurely or visit an exotic shop. This street, along with the wandering Baishui River, can also be a special destination area. There are pubs here where people can have drinks, meet fellow travelers and share their experiences and stories.
