What people are saying:

There are not many reviews for this attraction, they are all sentimental. After this personal experience, share some rational summaries for reference to friends behind. It's not easy to come here, try not to regret it. 1. Regarding the distance, from the Zhangye G227 navigation, half of it is a bumpy gravel road (the road is already under construction, and it is expected to get better soon), and the second half of the road is in good condition, limited height, and the RV just passed. 2. Regarding accommodation, the number that welcomes you after the military horse race is the small village outside the scenic area. There are several accommodations. The most expensive is Wowo self-driving camp with around 600 tents. It is relatively large and has more entertainment. It is suitable for parent-child families. There are also a few simple hotels in the village, which cost around 200 yuan, which is also OK. The boss is enthusiastic. RVs can be parked in the parking lot opposite the playground in the center. A more in-depth choice is the accommodation in the scenic area, two resorts at Huqi General Camp and Huaixi Resort Town, with holiday cottages, around 600. The location of General Hussar Camp is the only way for horses to drink water. Huaixi Town is closer to the valley, suitable for riding into the mountains. The wooden houses in Huaixi Town are relatively large, and the food and beverages are okay, and the prices are reasonable. If you live in the scenic area, you can drive in by self-driving car, but there are also people who take the shuttle bus with their luggage. I haven't figured this out yet. 3. Regarding the scenery, I always think that all the scenic spots are better as far as possible. Personally, I prefer the scenery of Huaixi Town. If you live there, you can ride a horse or hike into the mountains. It feels like a Swiss scenery. At the sightseeing station, if you can't see the horse drinking water, then just watching a small lake, there is nothing special. The most distinctive feature of this attraction should be to watch military horses (don’t be fooled by the propaganda photos of Wanma Galloping). I regret that the time of this trip is not right, so I remind the friends behind: there is no time to drink water on horses, basically watch There are no horses (except for the horses that tourists ride), so be sure to wait for horses by the water at around 7:30 in the morning, or around 4 in the afternoon (sometimes the horses do not come to drink in the afternoon). Because these horses are privately owned by herders, the scenic spot cannot provide an official timetable. It's a pity that I didn't get to this point in time when I came to this scenic spot. 4. Regarding horse riding, the price is basically the same, 50 yuan an hour. Horses are very strong and obedient, and they are a good choice for domestic horse riding. There are 4 horse riding spots to choose from: (1) The parking lot at the entrance of the scenic spot will take about 2 hours from the entrance to the viewing platform. This is the choice of most people and is suitable for basic horse riding sightseeing needs. (2) Horse riding at the General Hussar Camp, a small circle for 1 hour, a large circle for 2 hours, with cattle and sheep around, as far as the lake. This point is suitable for following the horses to drink water. (3) Horseback riding in Huaixi Town, I personally recommend it. You can ride into the valley in 2 hours. Unfortunately, a large cloud of clouds floated on the day, which quickly turned back my shower and let me experience it. The feeling of riding a horse. (4) From the viewing platform back to the three-way intersection at the entrance of the scenic spot, you can go to the forest canyon on horseback. I didn't go to see this in depth, but it is worth experiencing to see other people's photos. Generally speaking, the horses here are great, and the team leaders are also good. Anyone with zero foundation can make the horses gallop, which is very feel. Hope my sharing is useful to you😀
