Having lived for a whole year in Shanghai, last June - 2014 - I decided it was time to regain and to nourish my relationship with Mother Nature. Where else if not in the 'Eden of China'? Jiuzhaigou, here I come. When the bus from Chengdu entered the 'Village' I was puzzled: buses, cars, people (a lot!), fancy hotels. Not...

We were really looking forward to experiencing a real Tibetan stay but this place was an enormous disappointment. We suspect that the many years of being recommended by Lonely Planet has eroded the authenticity of this home stay. This is pretty much a hostel, there is no real actual contact with the 'staff' beyond check-in and check-out procedures and trip...

Beautiful house and ideal for a 2 night short stay to go on a full day exploration of the park (leave before 6.30 am though unless you want to be stuck in the traffic jam). Yummy food solely to be taken within your group of foreigners and not together with all family members - that is what you can get...

Relaxing place to stay away from the main Jiuzhaiguo madness. Beautiful village and nearby hills to explore on foot. Family is friendly and each family member has their own roles and responsibilities, service provision could step up a notch. Food was delicious, however, more variety could be provided. We got the same breakfast and dinner 3 days in a row....

I stayed at Zhuo Ma's back in the summer, and as the title indicates - we had a fantastic time here. I stayed with my then girlfriend, now fiancee, and her roommate. We were all in one room, and while the beds were not luxurious, that is not what we expected of an experience such as this. Zhuo Ma was...

I was here during off-peak season and most of our stay was just us as the guests. Amma was so friendly. Unfortunately I don't speak Chinese or their local language so I didn't get to know the wonderful stories that some other Tripadvisor reviews have. However, the youngest grandson is so much fun and will talk and talk to you-...

First things first, I got food poisoning after having eaten entirely their food for the past 5 meals. The beauty of Jiuzhaigou was made harder to appreciate as I had to stop at every bathroom along the way to relieve myself. For the price of 240 yuan per person per night, I was expecting restaurant quality meals and decent service....

There's something special about staying in someone else's home where everything is so different from how we live back home. We stayed four nights at Zhuo Ma's Jiuzhaigou Homestay with Amma, her son (Ke Zhu, whom we addressed as 'Du sifu') and 6-year old grandson. Their village is located in Shang ('Upper') Si Zhai Valley, Zhangzha Town, Jiuzhaigou County, which...

Staying with Zhou Ma was one of the most amazing experiences is China. She is so caring and we had an unbelievable stay for one of our friend's 30th birthday. If you want an authentic Sichuan experience stay here and make sure you try all the different food on offer at the family restaurant.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Zhuo Ma's Jiuzhaigou Home Stay is the Lonely Planet and Rough Guide top choices for Jiuzhaigou accommodation. It is located in the beautiful Shang Si Zhai Valley which is 15km from the park entrance (free transfers provided) where you will see local Tibetans go about their daily life, herding yak and goats as well as going on pilgrimages around our sacred mountains. Zhuo Ma runs the home stay with her mother (Ama) and brothers. They share their time between the home stay and their A Bu Lu Zi Tibetan Restaurant and between them will make sure you have a great stay! There is 24hrs hot water and a western toilet in the home stay. It is a traditional Tibetan home so there are no en-suite bathrooms. There is one bathroom on the ground floor of the home as well as two outhouse toilets, one with a solar heated hot shower. They do everything they can to make your stay comfortable but please note that this is a home stay in a beautiful, traditional Tibetan valley, not a hotel. ... more   less

“Rooms were ok, but I would advise bringing ear plugs … you could hear dogs barking at night, chickens, birds, etc. If you don’t have earplugs the sounds from the animals will keep you awake!”
