    I went in August. In the lone 3-year-old and 6-year-old, nine will have the stamina from Jiuzhaigou 6 hours round trip, and airport, huanglong → 9 went on the root of the Jiuzhaigou. On the day of location from the airport was the evening wear. 260 Yuan. In the reference table, the day 200 Yuan a night 260 there or the original. Before taking the bus driver 300 insisted on the original 200 and says the original, said!, easily in the night price 260 to. Again, think, susceptible to altitude sickness, but was bothered by headaches. Children were okay, but after nine had a car sickness on the taxi transfer to Jiuzhaigou, so believe the effects of high altitude. Huanglong-> Jiuzhaigou taxi at 400 Yuan. Transit time is 3 hours. So I read the community Web site and didn't know how taxi to huanglong airport the day before, yellow Dragon move when booked shuttle driver. Taxi driver was encouraged to stay near river main temple and sickness. It can certainly be option is and you may open at peak period 8:00 yellow Dragon, so to leave at six major temple of the river.

    9 from Japan, visited on tour Jiuzhaigou is to explore together. Is the road from the hotel is maintained in the trail switchbacks up by bus long, is more than 4,000 meters above sea level on the way, and some experience was pretty harsh conditions, as well as sickness and ill people to name a few. Huanglong is maintained as a tourist destination, walk a Boardwalk, including toilet was clean. (But should not be considered identical to the Japan toilet...) Sharpish, were outfitted with oxygen tanks on a tour along the way in the middle was provided oxygen supply, oxygen bar is a free, so don't worry about stifling, but the climb slightly rose breathe for as long. But the difficulty to overcome the enormous views was more than pictures, such as brochures, wonderful beauty. It is recommended because the guests were told "you're going I better go out even a little bit younger" is sick... This beauty if you want to go to.
