There are 2 parts at Hainan Island Jianfengling Tropical Rainforest National Park:
Part One: Tianchi and its surrounding area for lakes, waterfall, bird singing, tropical plants, flowers and more. Tian Chi literally means “Heaven’s Lake”. As expected, its extraordinarily serene surface creates a perfect reflection of the sky – as well as the rainforest-covered mountains – above.
The other part is to climb the Jianfeng Main Peak: it takes about two and a half hours to climb to the 1,412m-high mountain peak. On a clear day, climbers will be rewarded with a dynamic view of the fantastic rain forests, especially at sunrise or sunset.
For most tourists, an easy walk in the Mingfenggu Valley is the highlight of the day tour. Located not far from the Tianchi Lake, Mingfenggu is known for its variety of birds, such as rare peacocks, hawks, egrets, original chickens, and many more. In addition, the large collection of precious plants is an attraction. The plants here include large quantities of living fossil ferns, which have appeared since the dinosaur age that coexisted with rare birds.
November till April is the best time to visit Jianfengling Tropical Rainforest National Park as the weather will be pleasantly cool so you can appreciate the most beautiful landscapes on more sunny days. It rains a lot during the raining season May till October.

So far, there are 4 hotels in Jianfengling Hainan. You may get confused as all three hotels are named after Tianchi which means Heaven’s Lake. To make sure you choose the right hotel for your stay, please check out our site report:
Jianfengling Tianchi Hotel尖峰岭天池避暑山庄: Thoug the name comes with Tianchi, but actually the hotel is 3 km from Tianchi Heaven’s Lake, AND the Hotel is at the entrance to the Mingfenggu Valley. There are about 30 rooms for a budget stay in Jianfengling: twin beds or double beds, a TV with Chinese channels only, a kettle and en suite bathroom with wash basin, western toilet & shower with hot water heaters and 24 hours hot water. Tianchi Resort is our recommendation for budget stay in Jianfengling.
Standard room from CNY300/night, and deluxe rooms upstairs in the reception building at bigger size, better views costs CNY480/night with Chinese breakfast included.
Jianfengling Tianchi Taoyuan Hotel乐东天池桃园酒店: So far the best resort up to 4 star quality on the lake. We would recommend this Tianchi Taoyuan Hotel if you wish to have a better standard stay in Jianfengling. It is right on the Tianchi Lake with great mountain, and lake view. Standard double/twin room with lake/mountain view costs CNY888/night with breakfast included.
Jianfengling Tianchi Taohuayuan Hotel乐东桃花园度假酒店: The first hotel in Jianfengling on the lake, but now quite run down due to poor management. So we don’t recommend this hotel any more
