Are you looking for answers?

However,I will tell the fact only and make your own decision instead of follow the so called right guidance.

You may be told that Jiuzhaigou is the “Fairyland on earth”,the scenery is breath-taking all year round.

Anytime is right time?

  • Unfortunately, 1 coin has 2 sides.
  • Even though the scenery in Jiuzhaigou is fantastic, to the picky travelers who look for the best time to visit, they will still ask” when is the best time to visit Jiuzhaigou?”
  • Almost every client asked me this question,I got some experience and also some regrets, as it is not a question which can not be answered in a few words.

Here I would like to write this article to share my knowledge with you.

First of all,all, what do you mean by the “Best Time”?

Best scenery? Cheapest price? Least tourists?

Travelers can not see the best scenery at the cheapest price with least tourists.


The reasons why we visit Jiuzhaigou

  • 1.Multi-color highland lakes
  • 2.Waterfalls
  • 3.Colorful forests
  • 4.Snow peaks

Conclusion

The saying”The scenery of Jiuzhaigou in October is more beautiful than winter” is like “5-star hotel is more comfortable than local hostel”.I agree.

However the saying “Visit Jiuzhaigou in October is the best choice” is like “Book 5-star hotel is the best option “,I can not agree.

It is the best time when it fits your preference and budget.
