How to Book Jiuzhai Valley Tickets Online

On November 28 of 2019, the Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area Administration announced on its website that the daily number of tourists will be capped at 20,000 and that all visitors to Jiuzhai Valley must pre-book their tickets on the Aba Tourism website at least one day before their visit to the park, since it will no longer be possible to buy tickets on-site.

Unfortunately, the official ticketing website for Jiuzhai Valley National Park only has a Chinese version. If you don't read Chinese, you can use Google Translate to consult the website in a different language. Also, we have put together the following guide to help you in the process.
