Most visitors spend a day in Jiuzhaigou Valley mainly because the entrance ticket is only valid for a day, and with the help of sightseeing bus, one can explore most of the highlights in the three valleys. But there is no doubt you can only explore on the surface if you only spend a day in the valley. As a national park covering 72,000 ha and distancing over 31 mi, there are up to 114 turquoise pools and lakes, 47 tranquil springs, 17 groups of waterfalls, 11 rapids and 5 beautiful tufa shoals. Thus, we encourage you to spend two days in the valley so that you explore Jiuzhaigou further, closer and deeper, and enjoy some leisure and scenic walking.
The scenic area of Jiuzhaigou consists of four major areas which are Shuzheng Valley, Zechawa Valley, Rize Valley and Nuorilang Waterfall. They are connected by well-paved roads and wooden walking trails with total length over 37 mi. To enjoy a comfortable and scenic walking, you can spend one day walking the Zechawa Valley and Shuzheng Valley, and another day walking Rize Valley. Sightseeing bus will be used to transfer between those sections without walking trails
