Second National Park visit after Jiuzhaigou. Absolutely terrific. The pools are amazing. A good walk round taking the cable car up as we had to save time with arriving late. Worth it to do both national parks in North Sichuan.
The hike in this scenic area is long and takes up a lot of personal energy due to the high altitude of above 3000 meter. Suggest visitors to take the cable car up to the top, then walk all the way down. The scenic here is just beyond words can describe, in a nutshell: Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! No one should give this place a miss! #wintergetaway

Huanglong scenic spots, if you can, really want to go down, walk into the center, do not want to go, but the people in the scenic area are urging us to hurry out, It is ready to close the door. At this time, the weather has become extraordinarily cold. It is really dark when it comes out of the mountain. There are no signals in some places. Try not to play alone.
