The park is about a 50 minute drive from Zhongdian. It has two lakes, a visitor center, several interesting minority villages, lush forests and pasture views. From the visitor center a park bus takes visitors to the first stop, 8 miles (13 km) miles away from where there are several miles of raised wooden walkways around the 300 acres (120 ha) Shudu Lake (属都湖).
The next bus destination is Bita Hai Lake (碧塔海), 11,482 feet (3,500 m) above sea level. It is surrounded by dense deciduous forests. The bus stops a few feet from a wharf from where visitors can take a boat ride around the lake and to the island in the center. Price for the boat ride is 30 Yuan. It is just over a mile from the where the boat disembarks to the bus pick up point. Alternatively, one may walk down the 1.2 miles (1.9 km) path from the South entrance and hike to and exit the park from the West entrance. Getting to the West entrance requires both a boat and ferry ride. The entire hike can take 4-6 hours. Riding horses are also available.
Free admission to Xiagei Village or "Xiagei Only For Tourists Interested In Shopping Village” is included in the park’s 190 Yuan admission fee.
