Endangered Pandas and Golden Monkeys (金丝猴) inhabit the park, but the chances of seeing one are slim.


A single day entrance pass costs ¥220 and bus pass costs ¥90 per day for unlimited travel inside the park. Second day pass goes for the same price. The passes can be purchased at the front gate. During the off season, entrance ticket reduces to ¥80 per day and there is an option to add a second day entry for additional ¥20. Bus pass during off peak season is ¥80 per day.

Make sure if you get a two day pass that you go to the room next to the ticket booth and have your picture taken and printed on your ticket. If you don't you won't be able to reenter the park on the second day.


There is lodging located in the park and in Jiuzhaigou city located on the street outside the entrance. There are dozens of high-priced hotels.

No camping is allowed in the park.

In the winter months the park is extremely cold and it is necessary to dress warm to prevent frostbite.
