Property Description

Lonely Planet 2011 'Top Choice'. Home cooked breakfast and dinner are included! This is the only authentic Tibetan home-stay in the whole of Jiuzhaigou. It is one of the very few locally owned accommodations in the region.

What the Lonely Planet, May 2011 Edition says:
A genuine Tibetan homestay, this beautifully decorated wood cabin in a tiny village about 10km up the valley from the main park has three simple rooms and a wonderfully accommodating family. The lovely Zhuo Ma speaks some English and is on hand to welcome foreign guests. Her mother (amma) is the host and cooks the meals along with Zhuo Ma's brother Ke Zhu, a Lhasa-trained chef who prepares the food at the family's restaurant, Abu Luzi. There's a common bathroom with shower, and prices include three meals a day.
If rooms are full, Zhuo Ma's neighbours offer spillover accommodation, although without a shower.


I, Zhuo Ma, run the home stay with my Ama (mother) and my brothers. We also run the only authentic Tibetan restaurant near the entrance of Jiuzhaigou National Park called A Bu Lu Zi. We share our time between the home-stay and restaurant and between us we will make sure you have a great stay!

Our home is located in the beautiful Shang Si Zhai Valley which is 15km from the park entrance (free transfers) where you will see local Tibetans go about their daily life like herding yak and goats as well as going on pilgrimages around our sacred mountain.

Horse riding is also available from some of the villagers.

We have 24hrs hot water and a western toilet. Ours is a traditional Tibetan home so we do not have en-suite bathrooms. We have one bathroom on the ground floor of our home as well as an out-house toilet. We do everything we can to make your stay a comfortable one but please note that this is a home-stay in a beautiful, traditional Tibetan valley, not a hotel.

You will have a real Tibetan experience here and you will learn about our unique mountain culture.

We also offer cooking classes in our restaurant. Ke Zhu trained in Tibetan cooking for 7 years in Lhasa and Beijing and is also trained in Sichuan and Cantonese food - so the best of Tibetan and Chinese cooking.

Try yak butter tea and our home brewed Tibetan barley wine.

There are a number of homes in the valley that we can accommodate you in if you have large numbers but please not that these homes do not have a shower or western toilet.

Our home has rooms on the 1st and 2nd floors and the bathroom is on the ground floor. The 2nd floor rooms are accessed by a steep stair case and because of this inconvenience is cheaper. Accommodation includes single, double and triple rooms.

We look forward to welcoming you, Tashi Delek.

Latest Review

" A great place to soak up the atmosphere of Jiuzhaigou. The family are so welcoming and give you three meals a day, even a packed lunch if you are journeying out to one of the parks. They will drive you to the Jiuzhaigou park for free and have a driver for other longer excursions (Fairy Pools are amazing!). If you want an authentic experience I would definitely recommend. "
