Situated in the north of Sichuan Province, Jiuzhaigou is a famous national park. In 1992, this natural national park was recorded in the list of the World Heritage Site. There are lots of multi-level waterfalls, colorful lakes, and snow-capped mountains. And the average elevation is about 2,000 to 4,500 meters. Huanglong, situated in the northwest of Sichuan, is another hot tourist destination for travelers. Owing to the special terrain and geography, Huanglong is famous for the majestic and diverse pools, dense forests, white snow mountains, and numerous hot springs. Songpan, a traditional county in the northwest of Sichuan Province, is known to the public by its stunning natural views and unique traditions. As a special activity in Songpan, horse riding has become a hot programme for travelers. Planning a 5 days Jiuzhaigou, Huanglong, and Songpan Horse Riding Group Tour is the best way to explore the natural beauty and local cultures.
Note: After two years of reconstruction, Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area reopened now. Only group tourists organized by the travel agency are accepted to enter as the maximum limit is 5,000 people per day. So, you'd better book your tour at least one month in advance.
