The maximum daily visitor limit of Jiuzhaigou, a popular tourist destination in SW China, has been increased from 5,000 to 8,000. Over 80 percent of the scenic spot was reopened to tourists on Sept. 27, after two years of post-earthquake reconstruction.

CHENGDU, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- The maximum daily visitor limit of Jiuzhaigou, a famous scenic spot in southwest China's Sichuan Province, has been increased from 5,000 to 8,000, according to local authorities.

The administration of the scenic spot announced the news Saturday, saying the adjustment was made based on the park's trial operation.

On Aug. 8, 2017, a 7.0-magnitude quake forced the closure of the Jiuzhaigou National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its spectacular waterfalls, lush forests and serene plateau lakes. The Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport also halted service.

The park opens from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Tourists need to buy tickets from designated websites before visiting the area. Tickets cost 169 yuan (about 24 U.S. dollars) per person in peak season and 80 yuan per person in the off-season.
