Disneyland Park APP
You can check the waiting time of each ride in real time. You can adjust your tour plan according to the waiting time and save the queue time. In addition, the APP can also query all entertainment performance time and daily operation information, so that you can adjust the plan at any time; its map navigation can also be positioned at any time, so that you can arrange the garden time reasonably and try to avoid the road.Go early / late leave / avoid peak play 

1 As long as you go to the queue earlier than the opening time, you will definitely be the first to enter the park!
Although the official website said that it opened at 9:00, in the summer, it usually opened at 8:00, and some people ran to the entrance at 7 o’clock.

Two hours away from the park for 2 hours, it is the best time to take the rides. Most of the tourists have left the park during this time. Many popular rides can be taken without waiting in line.

3 use the cruise time to play
During the parade in the afternoon during the parade, a large number of tourists will gather on both sides of the tour. If you don’t mind missing the tour, the hour of the tour can be used to play more rides~

4 staggered meals
Around 12:00 noon and around 18:00 in the evening, most of the restaurants in the park are full of people, you can stagger the meals, not only the restaurants do not have to line up, the queues of amusement facilities will be relatively less ~

①只要你比开园时间还早就去排队,那你肯定能成为最早一批入园的!
虽然官网说9点开园,但是夏季的时候一般8点就已经开门,有的人7点就跑去入口排队了。

②晚离开乐园临近关门的两小时是乘坐游乐设施的最佳时间,这时段大部分游客已经离开乐园,游很多热门的游乐设施都可以不用排队直接搭乘。

③利用巡游时间去玩
巡游时乘坐设备下午的巡游表演期间,大批的游客会聚集在巡演道路的两旁,如果你不介意错过花车巡演的话,巡演的这一小时时间,则可用来玩更多的游乐设施~

④错开饭点
中午12:00左右及晚间18:00左右乐园内大部分餐厅都是人满为患,可以错开饭点,不光餐厅不用排队,游乐设施的排队人也会相对少一些~

china zhangjiajie tour
Yuanjiajie is the most relaxed and popular scenic spot in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. Travel agencies like to go. If you play carefully, it takes a total of 2 hours.
Yuanjiajie contains four attractions, all on one road. If you come from the chaos, you will arrive at the back garden in turn – the enchanted platform – the Qiankun column – the first bridge in the world. However, if the white dragon ladder comes up and takes the eco-car, it will first arrive at the Qiankun column, then turn left to go to the enchantment platform. The back garden does not have to go. It is the same scene as the ecstasy, and the angle is not as good as the ecstasy. it is good. Then turn right to the first bridge in the world.

1. There are several entrances to the forest park. Don’t take the two ticket stations of Yangjiajie and Tianzishan. It is too far away and the road conditions are very bad. It is recommended to enter from the forest park. If you do not live in the mountains, it is recommended to live in Wulingyuan in the next few days. It is a small town from the Wulingyuan ticket station. The environment is very good. It is convenient and quick to enter and leave the forest park from Wulingyuan.
2. There are many people waiting in line at each bus stop in the scenic spot. Try to reserve more time. The basic queue time is more than half an hour, every day.
3. If the physical strength is OK, don’t want to line up to take the Bailong elevator, you can go up the hill and go uphill, and walk slowly for an hour.
4. It is strongly recommended to take the line of the Shili Gallery on the mountain or down the mountain. There are countless observation decks on the road. The scenery is excellent. There are few streets on the observation deck on the mountain. There are few people, just look around and take pictures. Personally think that the scenery of the section of the Shili Gallery train is the most common line of the whole line, it is precisely this section, the tour group went the most.
5. The best place to watch the sunrise is in Daguantai. This is a well-known thing, but in fact, if you can see the clouds and the rainbow, you need luck. It is raining the night before, and I will be lucky to see it. If you love photography, you can refer to the weather first.

zhangjiajie yuanjiajie tourist map

杨家界总共有三条线:
1. Natural Great Wall
After taking the green car in the scenic spot and getting off at Yangjiajie, go up to the Yangjiajie cableway and go up in the direction. After the cableway, you will walk to the natural Great Wall in 5 minutes.
china zhangjiajie yangjiajie tour

Then return the original way. Walk along the other big road. After the next step, you will see the forked road. On the left is to go to the sky and the air corridor. On the right is to go to Wulongzhai and Tianbo.
2. Wulongzhai, Tianbofu
Go to Tianbofu for about 1.5 hours. Many people go to the small platform in Tianbofu. In fact, it is not necessary. The above perspective is not good. You can go around the place of “entrance” and “export” from below, and the angle of view is much better.
china zhangjiajie yangjiajie tour

Yangjiajie – Tianbofu
3. Step into the sky, air corridor
Return to the fork, and go to the left is the way to the sky and the air corridor.
Going to the sky and the air corridor, although it is very far away, it takes 3 hours to go back and forth, and it goes up and down, but all the essences of Yangjiajie are concentrated here. The large-scale peak wall landscape is very shocking. It is strongly recommended to go. It is the second best spot to be with the old house.

Yangjiajie – Air Corridor

When you go to the forked place and go to the sky and the air corridor, you will first go through the five prayers, then go a little further. When you go to a canteen, you will see a path, only a few steps, on the ground. There is a stone tablet that goes to the direction of the first bridge in the world. After the road goes down 20 meters, I can see the crossroads and go to the left and right sides. Anyway, I am on the left side and can reach the Yangjiajie parking lot in a few minutes. The place has been saved for half an hour. After reading the steps and the air corridor, remember to go out from this path!

zhangjiajie yangjiajie tourist map
Tianzishan mountain
Tianzi Mountain is the second most popular scenic spot except Yuanjiajie. Because the spots are concentrated and easy to play, it naturally becomes a place where the tour group is concentrated. It takes only 2 hours to play around in a circle.
1. Shentang Bay, Point Platform
The main viewpoint of Tianzi Mountain is in Helong Park, but there are two small points in front, namely Shentang Bay and Point Terrace. After getting on the bus and talking to the driver, he will stop at the corresponding point. The perspective of Shentang Bay is not very good. You can’t go, it’s better to order the station. There are very few people there, which is good for taking pictures.

2, Helong Park
Helong Park is not big, there are five or six observation decks, but the best view is only one observation deck, which is the Xihai Peak Forest, or Yunqingyan.

3. Fairy flower, Yubifeng, Tianzige, Samurai horses
After finishing the Helong Park, I went to a forked intersection and went up to take the cableway. At this time, you should turn to the right. There are still a few points to look at. There are fairy flowers, royal pens, emperor and samurai horses.

Huangshizhai

Huangshizhai is an independent scenic spot, close to the Forest Park ticketing station. After entering the forest park ticket station, take 5 minutes to the big oxygen bar square, turn left to take the eco-car to the Huangshizhai cableway station.
Take a circle of the big loop for about 2 hours.
china zhangjiajie tour
The front mountain down the mountain road is to reach the big oxygen bar square, about 1 hour. Later, the mountain down the mountain road to the Huangshizhai cableway station.
Compared with several other scenic spots, the scenery of Huangshizhai is average, not very stunning, and it is the same peak forest as Yuanjiajie. If time is not enough, you can give up.

There are small trains to sit, about 5 minutes in a single trip, more than 20 pieces. You can also walk, about half an hour one way. Take the eco-car to the Shili Gallery Station and walk back to the end of the Shili Gallery. If time is not enough, it is recommended to take the train directly.

  • Zhangjiajie Forest Park Scenic Spot includes Huangshizhai, Shadaogou, Jinbianxi, Yaozizhai, Yuanjiajie Scenic Area and Yangjiajie Scenic Spot;
  • The Suoxiyu Nature Reserve has developed 8 small scenic spots, including Xihai, Shili Gallery, Shuihuan Simen, Huanglong Cave, Baizhang Gorge, Baofeng Lake, etc.;
  • Tianzi Mountain Scenic Area has 5 main tourist areas: Tea Pan, Shentang Bay, Laowuchang, Huanglongquan, Fengqishan and Shijiatun;
  • Yangjiajie is located in the northwest of Wulingyuan, adjacent to Tianzishan in the north. There are three tourist areas, namely, Xiangxi River, Longquan Gorge and Baimen Valley. Tianbo House is also here.
  • If all is fully played, it will take about 6-7 days;

Tips:You are likely to be stunned by complex terrain and shredded sights. In fact, you only need to remember two points to identify the position:

1. Wulingyuan and Forest Park are the two most commonly used entrances. From one to the other, you can walk through the scenic area along the circular route.
2. The steep cliff divides the scenery into two on the mountain and under the mountain. In the area, the Golden Whip Creek and the two entrances are under the mountain. The rest of the attractions are on the hills. There are various ropeways and elevators under the hills and mountains. You can also walk along the stone steps.
3. There are many forks in the core scenic spot. Many beautiful scenic spots are relatively remote. From one attraction to another, tourists often cannot estimate the time correctly. It is a pure self-help tour. What people often encounter

ZhangJiaJie National Forest Park Tips
1. There are several entrances to the forest park. Don’t take the two ticket stations of Yangjiajie and Tianzishan. It is too far away and the road conditions are very bad. It is recommended to enter from the forest park. If you do not live in the mountains, it is recommended to live in Wulingyuan in the next few days.

Zhangjiajie Tour’s Accommadation:
zhangjiajie tourist map

 

How to arrange accommodation in Zhangjiajie
1. Before (or after) the day of playing Tianmenshan, it is best to live near the railway station. There are many inns near the railway station. The conditions are similar, generally 100. -200 or so
2. In the forest park scenic spot, it is recommended to live in the village of Lilac.
Zhangjiajie scenic area is very large, generally have to play 2-3 days.
The scenery distinguishes between the mountain and the mountain, and most of the attractions are on the mountain. The scenic spots on the mountain definitely cannot be played.
If you don’t stay in the mountains for one night, you have to go back, but this is basically a three-hour walk.
It takes 2-3 hours to go down the mountain, and it takes a lot of effort; take a cableway or a Bailong ladder and pay for it.
And returning to the mountains in the next day, you need to spend another physical strength, money and time, so it is not worth the candle.
So most of the tourists choose to stay in the mountains for one night, which saves time, effort and money.

The cloves are full of shops, and they are very convenient to go to the environmental protection station.
I live in the first Xia Keju in the village of Clove, although the conditions are not very good, but the advantages are two:
One is cheaper, the second is the nearest to the station, and often comes back from the scenic spot, always It is hoped that the sooner you arrive at the inn, the better!
If you want to choose a better inn,
you can consider the Bajie Youth Hostel in Lilac Village, as well as Milan, snails, etc., and the reputation is good.

3. It is best to live in Wulingyuan that night before playing the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is relatively close to Wulingyuan.
End of the forest park in the evening, from Wulingyuan to the scenic spot, live in Wulingyuan, the most convenient way to go to the Grand Canyon.

Zhangjiajie Tour’s luggage
Due to the scenic spots in Zhangjiajie, Zhangjiajie’s consignment is very mature.
You can entrust any inn in the Zhangjiajie urban area,
or at the central bus station, check in the luggage to the designated inn on the mountain,
as long as the name, mobile phone No., and the name of the inn, 20 yuan per piece of luggage.
Similarly, when in the mountains,
can also entrust the inn on the mountain to check the baggage to the city’s central bus station or any designated inn.
The baggage check-in can be done by any inn.
Before Zhangjiajie Tour:
1, the less the better the bag, because the daily accommodation in the mountains is not fixed, it will be very tired to carry the bag all the way;
2, it is best to bring an umbrella or buy a disposable raincoat in advance, the price is more expensive in the scenic area, the rainy season It is best to wear waterproof shoes. There are shoe covers sold in the scenic area but not slippery;
3, sunscreen products with a good index of 30 or more, mosquitoes, sunglasses, sun hats and at least three sets of replacement underwear and socks, some paper towels And wet wipes for disinfection, shoes should wear thick and non-slip sneakers;
4, with a band-aid, anti-inflammatory tablets, antidiarrheal tablets and other drugs.

 

Dressing guide:

The temperature difference between day and night in Zhangjiajie is large, and the temperature difference between the four seasons is relatively small. The temperature difference between the core scenic spot of Zhangjiajie and the urban area is about 5-10 °C, the hottest city is 39 °C, and the scenic spot is about 30 °C.
4-6 months, September-November: The temperature in the spring and autumn is lower than that in the city. In the early summer, you still need to wear long-sleeved clothes. In the evening, you should also be covered with a thin stomach. Keep warm, especially in the rainy season in May. With umbrella or raincoat.
7-8 months, December-February: Summer is very cool on the mountain, pay attention to sun protection in the city; snow will be on the mountain in winter, with trekking poles, non-slip shoes, keep warm.

Zhangjiajie Tour Other notes:
(1) The rainy mountain road is slippery, rain and fog will cause the line of sight to be unclear. It is best not to risk mountain climbing in the rain.
(2) During the golden week and summer vacation, it is the tourist season, and the prices of various services are rising. Traffic, accommodation and other inconvenience;
(3) all places to pay can bargain, especially for meals, accommodation and chartered cars, generally can get 7 or 8 fold; can be better with peers, many costs can be flat Booths can also be taken care of each other;
(4) Tickets can be placed at the ticket office of most attractions, for 2 yuan, generally not lost;
(5) Pay attention to the special vehicles of the legal tour group. Recognize the documents of the tour guides and porters;
(6) Don’t be wild and bonfire in the scenic area;
(7) Don’t be curious about the sudden quarrel or some strange scenes. Stealing and robbing;
(8) For areas marked as “forbidden to pass” and “dangerous”, do not venture to try;
(9) It is more energy-consuming to climb a mountain, and you can prepare a little dry food and bottled drink water to fill your hunger. , reduce travel expenses. Money should be dispersed, if there is a national bank card, it is best to bring it, and ID card;
(10) There is a baggage check-in service between the train station and the scenic spot in Zhangjiajie Scenic Area, you can be near the train station. The check-in point will ship the baggage to the home to be stayed. Conversely, the baggage can also be checked in to the train station in advance, and you can go directly to it at the time of arrival, each baggage is 10 yuan. It is recommended that before consignment, it is best to confirm with the owner of the accommodation whether there is such a business in their home for consignment and receipt;
(11) Don’t trust the words of the so-called travel agency staff on the train. After they recruited people, they usually resold them to travel agencies at a price of 100-150 yuan/person. The management is not perfect.
(12) The three groups of monkeys in the scenic area are the “head snakes” here. Don’t provoke them, don’t expose food, so as not to be hurt by monkeys while robbing them;
(13) It is not necessary to climb the mountain at night, but it is best to have a flashlight in Zhangjiajie to prevent accidents.

However,try to avoid the busy season,such as public holiday(especially national day holiday from 1st Oct-7th Oct),weekends,you may enjoy a relatively peaceful Jiuzhaigou.

Try to avoid crwods In each valley,according to our experience,we find out:
Rize Valley:Less people in the afternoon,walk from the bottom(Mirror Lake or Pearl Shoal )to the upper(Panda Lake or Arrow Bamboo Lake),you may encounter less people.
Zechawa Valley:Either in the early morning or in the late afternoon,most crowded from 10am-2pm.
Shuzheng Valley:Less people in the morning,walk from the bottom(Bonsai Lake )to the upper(Rhinoceros Lake)

Tips:Most sightseeing buses will drop tourists at the upper station,tourists walk downhill,so go against,ask bus driver to stop at the bottom of Rize Valley(Mirrow Lake or Pearl Shoal)Shuzheng Valley(Bonsai Lake),you may avoid the crowds.

Sections do not need to walk unless you have enough time and energy

Narthang Monastery
tibet0113e

Narthang Monastery is a monastery located 15km (9.3mi) west of Shigatse. Founded in 1153 by one of the disciples of Atisha, Nathang was the fourth great monastery of Tsang with Shalu Monastery, Sakya and Tashilhunpo. Narthang was first famous for its scriptual teaching and monastic discipline. After the fourteenth century it gained great eminence as the oldest of Tibet’s three great printing centres (the other being the Potala and the Derge).
“I went on to Narthang to visit the largest of the printing establishments in Tibet. The number of engraved wooden plates used for the printing of the various religious books was prodigious巨大的. Set up on shelves, in rows, they filled a huge building. The printers, splattered with ink up to their elbows,sat upon the floor as they worked, while in other rooms monks cut the paper according to the size required for each kind of book. There was no haste; chatting and drinking of buttered tea went on freely. What a contrast to the fevered agitation in our newspaper printing-rooms.”

Located on a hill in the center of the city, the full name in Tibetan of the monastery means: “all fortune and happiness gathered here” or “heap of glory”.
The monastery is the traditional seat of successive Panchen Lamas, the second highest ranking tulku lineage in the Gelukpa tradition.
Pilgrims circumambulate the monastery on the Lingkor (sacred path) outside the walls.
gigantic statue of the Maitreya Buddha

The Maitreya Temple known as (Jambu Chyenmu)) on the west side is the tallest building of the monastery. It was erected in 1914 by the Ninth Panchen Lama to house a gigantic statue of the Maitreya Buddha and is 26.2 metres (86 feet) in height. The statue sits on a splendid lotus throne in the ‘European’ posture with its hands in the symbolic teaching pose. A single finger of the giant figure is almost 4 feet in length. The statue contains 279 kg (614 lbs) of gold and 150,000 kg (330,000 lb) of copper and brass moulded on a solid wooden frame by Tibetan and Nepalese craftsmen. Small versions of the Maitreya are positioned in all four corners of the chamber and the murals on either side of the door show a more active, antic style than any to be seen in Lhasa.

On the east side of the monastery is the old living quarters of the Panchen Lama, the Panchen Lama’s Palace known as Gudong. Within, a narrow courtyard gives access to the temple containing the Fourth Panchen Lama’s tomb. The temple vestibule has very large inscriptions at either end praising his holiness.

Gyeni Chanting Hall
The Gyeni Chanting Hall is a chanting chamber of the Tashilhunpo Monastery on the south-east side where Tibetan Buddhism is practised. It has a debating garden in its courtyard with many fine trees. The roof of the chanting hall has a chapel on the north side where two very tall guardians are formed from its structural columns by the use of masks and ancient armour. Outside it are some extraordinary colourful Buddha murals and animal murals which have emerged from folklore and animism. It is situated near the smaller chanting hall of the Ngagang college on the west side.

Ngang College
Ngang College is a smaller chanting chamber of the monastery on the west side of the main path upstairs of the Deyangshar courtyard. A Ngang a morning chanting ceremony with religious musical instruments usually takes place between the few remaining monks of the temple.

Chuajing Duogang: The Great Courtyard

The Great Gallery
The gallery of the monastery surrounds the Deyangshar courtyard and leads to the chapels on the east side housing many hundreds of tiny Buddha statues.
The Roof Chapels
The roof of Tashilhunpo has several bronze-gated chapels located on two-tiered levels. On the north side, above the chapels of the chanting hall is the funerary stupa of the First Dalai Lama, the only one not entombed in Lhasa. On the east side is a small ‘chamber of horrors’ chapel. Painted demons, considered now to be defenders of Buddhism betray their origins as the terrifying gods of the old animist Bön faith who only later were absorbed by Buddhism. On the south side is a charming Tara chapel with blue and gold murals on the walls depicting Tibetan history.

Namtso Lake
Travel Guide

Namtso was born in the Paleogene age, as a result of Himalayan tectonic plate movements. The lake lies at an elevation of 4,718 m (15,479 ft), and has a surface area of 1,920 km2 (740 sq mi). This salt lake is the largest lake in the Tibet Autonomous Region. However, it is not the largest lake on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. That title belongs to Qinghai Lake (more than twice the size of Namtso); which lies more than 1,000 km (620 mi) to the north-east in Qinghai.

Namtso has five uninhabited islands of reasonable size, in addition to one or two rocky outcrops. The islands have been used for spiritual retreat by pilgrims who walk over the lake’s frozen surface at the end of winter, carrying their food with them. They spend the summer there, unable to return to shore again until the water freezes the following winter. This practice is no longer permitted by Chinese authorities.

The largest of the islands is in the northwest corner of the lake, and is about 2,100 m (6,900 ft) long and 800 m (2,600 ft) wide, rising to just over 100 m (330 ft) in the middle. At its closest point it is about 3.1 km (1.9 mi) from the shore.

The most remote island is, at its closest, 5.1 km (3.2 mi) from the shore. At summer time birds like Ruddy shelduck and cormorants (Phalacrocorax sp.) migrate to the lake area, besides the fields of Astragalus, Roegneria nutans and Marram grass…..

  • Namtso Lake lies at 4,718 meters of altitude, if you aren’t used to it, you’ll feel bloody tired. Even walking was difficult, let’s forget about climbing the rock on the right side of the lake
  • The only challenge of the trip is represented by the need of drinking a huge amount of water to continuously re-rehydrate your brain (and thus limit the altitude sickness symptoms) and the fact that the bus stops only every two hours so you can’t go to toilet when you want.
  • although it was snowing a bit, there was the sun and you could get around without jacket. because standing on the highest plateau of the world, where the sun is stronger.
  • The lake has five islands that were used for spiritual retreat. The pilgrims would walk over the frozen lake at the beginning of the spring, spend the summer on an island and come back only at the beginning of the next winter, when the water would frozen again. Nowadays the government doesn’t allow this practice anymore.
  • from January to April and November to December, travelers cannot get to Namtso Lake, because the pass is close and the road is not accessible.Some travel agencies will accept to bring you to the lake at any time (money comes first!). However in the winter it can be dangerous as there is too much snow so it’s better to avoid it.
