At that time, the colorful leaves should be gone. But the scenery of tree branches along with the blue water is surely gonna take your breathe away as well. Besides, it may snow sometimes and the snowscape is also worth taking in.
Hope you have a nice trip!

Do the buses run in Jan/Feb?
I refer to the buses that go up from the base area. Can I access all the same pathways in winter as I can in the warmer months? I ask because I want to return to take pix of the waterfalls when frozen.

Verne, the buses still run in January and February. However, the frequency should decrease compared with the high seasons. Yes, you can access to the pathways.

Dujiangyan to Jiuzhaigou Bus Service
Could you please supply details of the bus service from Dujiangyan to JZG? Bilingual bus Station name and address Transit time Road safety?

Secondly is it worth visiting JZG in late March? Why is it best to take the bus from Chengdu?

Francine, I searched on the internet and found there are two buses from Dujiangyan Passenger Transport Center to JZG. It leaves at 08:00 and 10:20. The transport center is located at No.76, Ying Road. This information is provided by a netizen. I don't know if it is reliable.

If there is no direct bus from Dujiangyan to JZG, you can take D trains or buses to Chengdu. Then take a public bus to Xinnanmen Bus Station. There you can take bus to JZG. Please remember to buy the tickets in advance. It's very difficult to buy on the same day when you arrive. Forget to say, the buses depart before 08:00. It takes around 9 to 11 hours. The fare is around CNY 141.

Usually there are two ways from Chengdu to JZG, West line and East line. The road conditions for the West line (Chengdu, Dujiangyan, Wenchuan, Maoxian, Songpan and JZG) are not as good as those for East line (Chengdu, Mianyang, Pingwu and JZG).

Honestly, you might be a little disappointed if you go to JZG in March. It's low season. If you want to view the best scenery, you should go in mid October or the beginning of November. It's peak season and there will be too many tourists.

Thank you very much Dick. You have really helped me to make a big decision. I think going to JZG in March is a bad idea.
