Altitude

        The elevation of the Jiuzhai Valley National Park ranges from 1,990m (6,529 feet) at the entrance to 4,764m (15,630 feet) at the peak of Ga Er Na Feng Mountain.

         Although altitude sickness is rare, visitors should be aware of the elevation and expect to be out of breath quicker than you normally would be at lower levels. Some preventative measures to the affects of altitude sickness are to drink plenty of water and carry some aspirin in case it is required. Having said this you will never be too far from a water source or from other people. Busses run constantly between the scenic spots and you can hop on and off freely during the day with your bus ticket. Oxygen supplies are available for a nominal fee at the medical center at the park entrance.
