This place is indeed very beautiful, but foreigners should be aware that as of October 2020 you need a Chinese ID (身份证 - shenfen zheng) in order to buy a ticket for any of the major attractions in the area. This is a new arrangement due to COVID-19 restrictions, hopefully it will soon be possible for foreigners to buy tickets again.

Nature's spectacularly scenic fairyland in China. Beautiful autumn colours. Nice walkways and boardwalks enabling access to much of the national park's awesome beauty.

Jiuzhaigou is one of the most beautiful places I have seen in my life. I suggest that you come in the off season (not during a holiday and not on the weekends) as the park and busses can be quite crowded during holidays and weekends. Although there is bus service between the major attractions, I suggest that you walk between attractions as much as possible. You will avoid the huge crowds of people waiting for the busses and you will be able to see more of the beautiful park. Some of the trails are closed, but we walked as much as possible to maximize our experience in this amazing park. A major earthquake occurred in 2017, and the park was just reopened in 2019. The taxi driver told me that few foreigners have traveled to Jiuzhaigou after the earthquake. Additionally, COVID-19 has made things even more complicated for foreigners to visit. There is a police check station between the airport and the city, and they will require that foreigners provide all paperwork, including a negative COVID-19 nucleic acid test, their residence registration form (for the city where the foreigner lives), and passport. As of 9/29/20, the national park is currently not open to foreigners, and the ticket sales channels only accept Chinese ID cards. The only way a foreigner can enter the park is if they have a Chinese “Foreign Permanent Resident ID Card”. In the case that the foreigner has a Chinese ID card, they must add the Aba Tourism We Chat contact, and send lots of information to the We Chat account. After the information is verified, the Aba Tourism Group will send a QR code for payment. After the payment is made, the foreigner’s Chinese Permanent Resident card will be programmed into the park’s entry system and can be scanned for entry. I was able to enter the park since I have the permanent resident card, but another foreigner that came to Jiuzhaigou while I was here was unable to enter since she didn't have permanent resident ID card. If you are a foreigner travelling to Jiuzhaigou, be aware that discrimination and fear of foreigners is rampant due to COVID-19. As my Chinese friend arranged the airport to hotel transfer service, the taxi driver was very surprised when he saw that one of us was a foreigner. He asked a lot of questions and seemed very hesitant to let me in his car. Additionally, a Chongqing hot pot and noodle restaurant near the parking lot of the national park refused to let me in, and the staff of another restaurant ran inside and closed the doors when they saw me coming. If you are a foreigner and do plan to come to Jiuzhaigou, be prepared for this. As a reminder, as of today (9/29/20), if a foreigner doesn’t have a Chinese Permanent Resident Card (green card), it is not possible for entry to the park. Of course, this policy could be updated at any time, so check with the park before you plan travel to Jiuzhaigou (if you are a foreigner).

I have been to Jiuzhaigou a few times in the past. Since the earthquake in 8/2017, the place was closed due to extensive damage to the buildings and landscape. It was re-opened in late 2019 and I was really lucky to be able to see it again in mid Jan. 2020 and on a sunny day. Within a few days the coronavirus caused country-wide closures of parks and tourist areas until now. Before this most recent visit, the last visit was in early Dec. 2014 when the snow began to fall overnight. It was spectacular. The snow was not so extensive this time, maybe due to warmer climate. The earthquake did a lot of damage to the buildings and the visitors center was being re-built. The restaurant building was renovated and was much nicer than before. The earthquake also changed the landscape but to my surprise the damage was not too bad. In fact the Double-Dragon Lake Waterfall became even more spectacular after the earthquake. Many other buildings were closed due to damage. It was quite a misery to see most hotels closed and deserted since the earthquake. The hotel we stayed had only our tour group of 13 on that day. Nevertheless Jiuzhaigou is undoubtedly one of the best natural reserves that I have visited, with scenery changing over the seasons. Now we just to wait for the time when the reserve re-opens in future. When? Nobody knows.
