Very disappointed with this "park". After a 30 minute drive from main downtown area of Tengchong we arrived at a parking lot, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Had to walk through several vendors selling trinkets to get to the ticket station. Fee is not too high; only ¥40. But we still felt it was overpriced. For extra fees you... More

We spent two days in the park. The park itself is a nice walk, up and down, along a river, next to water sprouts, and nice scenery. It's so nice that we walked the park twice, in opposite routes. We stayed in the park (very expensive but fantastic unit with private hot spring outdoor tub). The park admission is included... More

great place. a good product of Nature.Its located in the south western parts of the GaoLigongshan Mountains in the Hengduan Range. the oldest volcano in the cluster. Daying Mountain, measuring 8,576 feet above sea level, is the tallest of the volcanoes, with a crater over 328 feet deep and a diameter of 328 yards.

I know now, after 2 months that in China it is difficult to find a natural setting to explore. China has classified it's natural tourist attractions , paving them, making them very accessible and charging a good deal to visit them. We were hoping to actually climb a volcano, but this was not the case. We walked up 2 long... More

It was ok! The area is beautiful, however, there should be a lift for those who aren't able to walk up the many steps that are required to get to the top. It's a great idea to have other activities there such as the balloon lift and the hang glide.

It is ok but not worth the money. To get inside you must walk through maze of sellers with all kinds of kitsch and plants in volcanic rock pots. The walk is simple and around a crater then up a big hill to another crater - nothing too special about it.

Tengchong volcano Park is not a popular attraction in China, but it is a must-go place in Tengchong. That is why i would not recommend you to go there in Chinese Holiday season such as Chinese New Year, National Day or Labor Day. According to my conversation with friends there, the whole park is fully packed! We were fortunately there... More

Interesting place with many volcanoes in the area, a guide said over 80. Some have craters and some do not. Most are dormant or inactive now. In this park you can go either to the crater of a small extinct volcano or to a larger one. We went to the small one, since the large one involved a whole lot... More

Tengchong region is no longer volcanically active but it's certainly a lively place with much to offer. The Volcanic Park covers two main areas, including the Large and Small Crater Peaks where an interpretative Museum has been built. it's a short walk to the top of the Small Crater with a circuit around the rim. The Larger Crater is a... More

Maybe we missed something good but frankly this I not much of a park. Lots of vendors hawking food and souvenirs and the"natural wonders" are far from wonders.
