What people are saying:

Beautiful scenery, I would totally recommend to visit the whole Park by foot and avoid taking the cable car. It''s a waste of money. The track to the top is very nice and easy and not a lot of people take it.

    Really cool!

    Absolutely worth visiting! The only thing to remember - it closes at 17:00. You can find a driver to go there from Songpan near the bus station. This place is full of great views and positive energy!

    A must see! No where else like it on earth!

    Most people go to the Nine Villages and skip this park which is about 2 hours away. I highly recommend that you take an extra day to go to this park. You take a gondola to the top and see a Tibetan t...

    Similar to the salt flats of Turkey

    Unlike the white-coloured salt flats of Turkey, the water pond containers here are a gold-brown in colour. The surrounding beauty here is very beautiful, calm and serene. Good place to unwind and rela...
