Kieran Fitzgerald from the Jiuzhai Valley National Park has agreed to share some more information about this place of immense natural beauty.

Kieran: Established in 1984 to strengthen the works of conservation of Giant Panda habitats in the Jiuzhai Valley Nature Reserve.

Maxxelli blog: What kind of visitors do you receive?
Kieran: Vistors are nature lovers from all over China and the world. These range from young hikers from home and abroad, adventure travellers and older Chinese people who have been dreaming of coming here all their lives.

Maxxelli-blog: When can we go there and how much does that cost?
Kieran: Jiuzhai Valley National Park is open 365 days a year and each season offers something different. Opening hours and entrance prices for the park differ according to the season. During the summer the park is a celebration of everything blue and green. The autumn colours have inspired many Chinese poets and during the winter, the park’s driest season the mountains can be a barron brown colour or a “winter fairyland” when covered in snow. Because of the destruction that fire could cause the region (most villagers still live in wooden homes) some trails and parts of the park are closed during the winter.
