The United Nations has declared 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity and the theme of this year’s World Environment Day was “Many Species. One Planet. One Future.” It echoes the urgent call to conserve the diversity of life on our planet. A world without biodiversity is a very bleak prospect and this is something that we in Jiuzhai Valley National Park are very aware of.

Visitor information

Tickets

Opening hours and entrance prices for the park differ according to the season. During the winter season the park is at its driest and the threat of forest fires is at its highest. Because of the destruction that fire could cause the local eco-system and residents (most villagers still live in wooden homes) some trails and parts of the park are closed.

Official Park Opening hours:

May 1 – November 15 - 7:00am to 7:00pm
November 16 – April 30 – 8:00am to 6:00pm

Second day ticket:During the off-peak season the second day ticket costs 20 RMB. When purchasing your ticket you will be asked if you would like to enter the park for one or two days. If you would like to spend two days in the park you need to pay for the second day together with your first day’s ticket. Your photo will be taken on entry to the park to validate your second day’s ticket. If you pay for a one-day ticket and decide that you would like to re-enter on the second day you must tell the park staff on the way out, before you exit the park. This offer is only valid for two consecutive days in the off peak season.
