Jiuzhaigou is high plateau area,in summer time,it is cool in daytime and a little bit cold in the morning and in the night.
In winter time,the temprature here is usually minus zero degree,snowy,freezing,need to take more warm clothes.
The ultraviolet radiation is very strong here,so protect yourself from burned.
Best season to visit:
The most beautiful season is Autumn(Sep'-Oct'),you will see a colorful Jiuzhaigou coz the trees here turn red and yellow.
but DO NOT visit during Oct 1--Oct 7 if your time is flexable, since it is Chinese national holiday,you can only see crowds of people.
and everything is very expensive during that time!
If you dont have chance to visit in Autumn,then Winter is the second choice.
the snow mountain,ice waterfall is awesome!
