Get in[edit]

From Xining you can take a bus from the medium distance bus station located on the north-west corner of KangLe intersection (HuangZhong Lu and XiaDu DaJie). You can take a bus directly to the Forest Park (Every day, departs from Xining 9.45am, departs the forest park 4pm returning to Xining), or alternatively take a bus to HuZhu County Town bus station (¥12, departing every 10 minutes during the day), and from there there is an hourly bus (¥17.5, departs on the hour) to HuZhu BeiShan. The entrance to the Forest Park is a couple of miles before the end of the ordinary bus route, so you need to get off there.

Fees/Permits[edit]

At the main entrance to the Forest Park you need to buy a ticket (¥80).

Get around[edit]

Unless you have your own transport you are also likely to want to buy a ticket for the golf buggy style buses (¥12). These take vistors to most of the significant scenic areas in the Park.

See & Do[edit]

Mostly walking! There are a couple of beautiful waterfalls, and you can walk up to the Heavenly Lake near the top of one of the mountains - although its a 10km walk up a track at the end of one of the roads.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Eat & Drink[edit]

Each of the main scenic spots has a one or two stalls selling cold drinks and snacks. There are also some hot food stalls selling food such as bings (savoury fried pancakes) and roast potatoes.

Where to stay[edit]

Most of the small hamlets in the park are guest houses. Cai Lun Duo Forest Lodge (才伦多森林之屋 - 13897723151) is an excellent lodge with various individual rooms set around a courtyard. Prices around ¥300 per night for a double room. Staff are helpful and are used to having foreigners to stay - they have a restaurant on sight with a menu in English, although dishes are twice as expensive as you'd find in Xining.

Camping[edit]

There are no official camping areas, but wild camping is possible in the park - follow wild campers etiquette!
