If you go

Shangri-La National Park of Yunnan Snub-nosed Monkeys

An entry ticket costs 100 yuan ($14.6). Electric cart rides are 50 yuan.

The park is open 8 am to noon, and it's strongly recommended visitors arrive before 9 am.

It's efficient to stay in Tacheng town and hire a driver, which usually costs 150 yuan round-trip. It's advisable to bring oxygen bags (available at pharmacies) since elevations exceed 3,000 meters.
