The fossils are well preserved. If I recall correctly, there's around 400 dinosaurs that has not been unearthed. However, it's definitely much easier to get here if transport is provided. Good to see it once but not somewhere I will return to.

This place pretty much has the feel of the Jurassic Park shown in the movie except there will be no living dinosaurs to attack you. For the scientific type, you can visit the dinosaur fossils display and the excavation site. It is amazing to see like 60 sets of dinosaur skeletons up close. A couple of them are like 80+... More

This attraction is also known as Lufeng Dinosaur Quarry of China. We didn't know that there so many Dinosaurs skeletons and fossils in Yunam China. You can see a complete set of well preserved dinosaur skeleton and many hanging in display. The longest dinosaur was also on display. Very interesting indeed. There was also a video with the theory of... More

If you have a car this is an easy trip as Dinosaur Valley is right off the toll road about and hour west of Kunming. The cost was 150 kuai for adults and 60 kuai for children. When we went the rides were included in the fee. The tram car around the park is a separate ticket but included in... More

Interesting to know that there are many dinosaurs in China last time. To get here, you need to drive around 2 hours from Kunming but worth a visit. This is a ticketed area and there are spectacular display of dinosaur skeletons. Also, there are sites where fossils are uncovered. There is a small manmade theme park which does not look... More

Surprised to discover there is a dinosaur valley in Yunnan and paid a visit. Satisfied as there are a lot of different discovery centres for visitors to explore, on top of the mini theme park with different rides great for adults and kids. The fossils are also amazing and the layout of the discovery centres are properly done to allow... More

We visited in Winter, so the park was pretty quiet and not all parts operational. When we first arrived, all we could see were the super tacky dinosaur replicas, which were a little bit hysterical, but good fun. We walked around the park a bit and finally made our way to the giant concrete building and it was in here... More

We were "lucky" the rides were not operational on the day we visited. Tickets were half price (60 yuan) and we skipped all the tacky man made theme park bits and headed straight to the quarry to see the dinosaur skeletons and fossils, which was really impressive and well displayed. Unfortunately they didn't have very thorough explanations in English. We... More

I was surprised to see so many dinosaurs skeletons found in Lufeng Dinosaur Valley. In fact, I didnt even know that there were dinosaurs in China. It is really a very good and educational tour for me. If you do pass by Quxiong, plse visit the Lufeng Dinosaur Valley.

It is about one and a half hours drive away from Kunming but worth the visit. Skip the manmade stuff and attractions and head directly to the dinosaur museum/ exhibition hall. Inside is a spectacular display of dinosaur skeletons, and you will meet the Lufengosaurus. Linked to the museum are sites where fossils are still being uncovered. You can see... More
