Jiuzhai Paradise Jarpo Town, Sichuan Sheng, China
Located at an altitude of more than 3,000 meters, Jiuzhai Valley National Park faces special difficulties with dining. Many goods and materials have to be transferred from nearby towns and villages, resulting in high prices and a limited variety of foods.
Near the scenic spot are several small restaurants that offer different styles of Chinese cuisine. A simple dinner can be found there at a reasonable price. The Xiaobu Snack, a popular restaurant, is located at Bianbian Street to the right of the entrance gate to Jiuzhai Valley.
Most of the restaurants in the area can be reached easily on foot; however, taking a taxi will save time. Since the area has been inhabited by a large number of Tibetans for a long time, the authentic local food offers unique Tibetan flavors, such as the famous buttered tea and highland barley wine. The strong flavor of the Tibetan food might not please everyone.
