Zhuo Ma is certainly a place to recommend if you are looking for authentic tibetain house, food and culture. The lovely tenant is preparing diner, breakfast and lunch to take away included in the price. The dowstairs bathrooms does not have all modern comfort but it has hot water shower and proper toilets. The rooms upstairs were clean and the tibetain cosy bed was amazing ! The place is hard to find, but they organise pick up from Abuluzi, their family restaurant close to the park entrance.

Thank you for your kind recommendation. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and hopefully we can welcome you back again some day.


This home stay is a real cultural experience. The Tibetan home is located about 15 km from Jiuzhaigou National Park. The family that run this home stay are so kind. They provided free drop-off and pick-up from Jiuzhaigou. They also helped with arranged a ride to Huanglong Nature Reserve and helped us to buy bus tickets to Songpan. As a home stay, all of your meals are included.


We were instantly entranced by the gorgeous scenery and quaint Tibetan village where Zhou Ma and her family live. More importantly though, their heartwarming friendliness and cheerfulness, and Ama's infectious laughter and amazing cooking skills made our stay completely worthwhile! Listen to their stories, cuddle their cat, sip a cup of yak butter tea, and catch a ride with them to their restaurant in town every morning which is a short walk from the national park. We would definitely come back!

Thank you so much for your kind review. Guests coming and enjoying themselves so much in our home is why we love running a home-stay so much. We hope to see you back in the future!


Ama and her two sons are simply amazing! IEverything was so laid back and welcoming the moment I arived. English is limited which doesn't make a difference in communication. We laughed a lot together and I was sad to leave! Everyone who is looking for an authentic, off the beaten track accommodation: this should be your pick! Thanks for everything, you guy made me HAPPY HAPPY!

Thank you so much for your kind review, we really appreciate it. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay so much, it was a pleasure to have you. Hopefully you can come back some day!


We really enjoyed our stay at Zhou Ma's homestay, Ke Zhu and Ama are awesome! They both try their hardest to learn and speak a little english and are always nice and happy. Ama prepared lovely homecooked meals every day. The house is quite far from the park, so you really have to rely on the transfer service of Khe Zhu, because a taxi costs you 40RMB each way. Downside to that is, that if you have lazy/late other guest you might end up leaving 30 mins later then planned.

We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay, we hope to see you again some day!


such a cool experience! highly recommend this, especially if you don't have time to make it to Tibet. The grandma is so nice, and the food is delicious - we were well fed. her English isnt bad. two nights though, we were asked to eat outside instead of comfortably inside where we had settled (it gets cold at night) because there were other non-homestaying visitors being entertained inside. it was awkward and kind of rude frankly since we were paying customers, but what can you do?

We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your experience. We must apologise for the eating situation on the last day, we should have moved another table into the living room for you. Hopefully we'll get the chance to make it up to you!


I am absolutely thrilled by Ama and her whole family's hospitality, amicability and diligence. This home stay has by far exceeded my expectations. It is located remotely in a village far away from any touristic crap. Transportation to the Jiuzhaigou park is provided and takes only 20 min. Guests have the chance to live in an authentic house and enjoy some amazing, home made food every day. I had a great time, thank you so much!

Thank you so much for your kind review. It makes our whole family so happy when people enjoy their stay in our home. It was a pleasure to host you!


I was there with my daughter of 10 years and she loved the place. Lovely family. Helpful with transport to and from the city , arrangement of horse riding, transport to the airport, etc. We do not regret that we have chosen our journey in this hostel in a village instead of a hotel in the city. At the contrary, we enjoyed our stay very much and can recommend to other travellers.

Thank you so much for your kind recommendation. We are delighted that yourself and your daughter enjoyed your stay and hopefully you can come back to stay with us again one day!


My boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights at Zhuo Ma's and very much enjoyed it. We found the family to be very friendly and helpful, the house had a warm and inviting atmosphere and the food was great. The lift to the national park was included and that made it very easy, and the packed lunch was also very convenient. Zhuo Mas is the perfect place to stay for your Jiuzhaigou adventure, away from the crowds.
