Safety & Security in Jiuzhaigou

High-plateau Sickness

The altitude of the scenic spot is between 2000 to 4000 M, but no over 4000 M, so it will not be so uncomfortable to suffer high-plateau sickness. Unless you are in bad condition, or you are over 50 years old, you don’t have to worry about high-plateau sickness. However, inside scenic spot, especially at high altitude, you’d better walk slowly. Pay attention to keep warm, to prevent heavy wind (the wind in mountainous area is very heavy), to keep strength and not to make yourself too hungry. That is all.

When you cannot breathe, have a headache, get body wetting, or heartbeat quickly, don’t be nervous, you should call your partners to sit down somewhere, and eat something, especially something high calories, like chocolate. Then you need to take a deep breath. Control your breath, inhale more, expire air slowly, and make breath slowly. Yellow Dragon Scenic Spot in Jiuzhai valley(Jiuzhaigou) is in forests and wetland, so the air is fresh with high volume of oxygen. You will recover if you inhale more fresh air.
Old and weak people need to prepare a small size of oxygen bottle (you can buy it from pharmacy in Chengdu). Patients with hypertension, coronary heart disease, or heart disease are forbidden to go.
