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

Over 80 percent of the tourist destination was reopened to tourists on Sept 27, after two years of post-earthquake reconstruction.

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 am to 5 pm daily. Tourists need to buy tickets from designated websites before visiting the area. Tickets cost 169 yuan ($24) per person in peak season and 80 yuan per person in the off-season.
