Brief Introduction: Jiuzhaigou is located in the north of Sichuan Province and is well known as “a fairyland.” The name Jiuzhaigou originates from “nine Tibetan villages scattered throughout the valley.” Its attraction lies in its simple, idyllic beauty; a fairyland, primitive and natural and still in its pristine state. With majestic and unrivaled emerald lakes, layered waterfalls, colorful forests, snow peaks and Tibetan folk villages, all blending in harmony with each other – it is nature’s jewel set into the mountains. Jiuzhaigou lies in a transitional area where northern and southern flora and fauna meet. A natural botanical and zoological garden, it is home to densely growing conifers and broad leaf trees, and to rare and endangered animal species such as the giant panda, golden monkey, and white-lip deer. Recently, UNESCO has recognized the Dujiangyan Dam as a world cultural heritage site. Jiuzhaigou is truly a place that inspires her admirers to create beautiful poetry.

Shuzheng Group of Lakes
 
The scenic spot of Shuzheng Qun Hai (Shuzheng Lakes) is the entrance to the beautiful and splendid Jiuzhaigou. With a total length of 13.8 kilometers, Shuzheng contains over 40 lakes, big and small, which extend for about 5 kilometers, occupying 40% of the total area in Jiuzhaigou. With an elevation difference of over 100 meters, the lakes form a stair-like group. The water is bright blue and clear. The clay-colored calcium dykes are elegant and refined, where a wealth of weeping willows, pines, cypresses and China firs grow. Waters of the upper lake leap over bushes and trees of the dyke, prompting a spray of white mist and forming many charming water screens. The whole lake group is clearly leveled with blue water and green trees, offering a distinct impression of a fairy tale setting.

Wuhua Hai (Five Flower Lake)
 
Wuhua Hai (Five Flower Lake) is 5 meters deep at an elevation of 2,472 meters. It is the pride of Jiuzhaigou Valley. Due to different water depth levels and silts on the bottom, the lake’s waters assume a variety of colors, including light yellow, dark green, deep blue, and jadeite; under the sunlight, they are as colorful and beautiful as peacock feathers. Looking down at the lake, you can even see water bubbling out of a well at the bottom.

Zhenzhu Tan (Pearl Shoal)
 
Zhenzhu Tan, meaning “Pearl Shoal,” offers a spectacular view of a stream rushing down a 20 degree slope into the sandbar, splashing water about like millions of bouncing silver pearls. As the stream descends, it forms fantastic waterfalls of various shapes as the relentless rush of water creates thunderous roars echoed by the deep valley.

Panda Lake Waterfall
 
Panda Lake Waterfall consists of three separate streams rushing down a precipice to form three different waterfalls, two of which are 62 feet (19 meters) in height, with the third measuring 79 feet (24 meters) in height.

Xiongmao Hai (Panda Lake)
 
Settled at an altitude of 2,587 meters, Xiongmao Hai (Panda Lake) is 14 meters deep, with an area of 90,000 square meters. It is the local haunt for giant pandas. The rocks on the bank are lined with special veins. There is a white rock with several black veins that resembles a giant panda in the water.

Luwei Hai (Reed Marshes)
 
Luwei Hai stands at an elevation of 2,140 meters. It is a semi-marsh lake, where reeds abound and birds fly freely. When the reeds come into bloom, layers of the down-like flowers undulate, seducing wild ducks and egrets into stopping by. Reed Lake is suffused with a thriving and flourishing vitality. When the season turns, the green meandering brook presents a striking contrast with the yellow spread of reeds.

Nuorilang Waterfall
 
Nuorilang Waterfall is at an elevation of 2,365 meters. At 32 meters wide and 25 meters high, it is the widest waterfall in Jiuzhaigou Valley and one of China’s largest calcium falls. The name of Nuorilang means magnificent and splendid in Tibetan language. It is famed for its broadness and grandeur. When the sun shines, you will be enchanted by gorgeous rainbows above. The top of the waterfall is very flat. Legend has it that originally there was no waterfall but only a platform long ago. Then, a monk brought a spinning wheel when he came to this place. A Tibetan girl learned the skill of spinning very soon, and so she carried the wheel to the platform and showed her sisters how to spin. Roza, a cruel man, and his accomplices thought that she was doing something evil. They kicked her, as well as the spinning wheel off the cliff. In no time, torrents rushed Roza and his accomplices down the mountain, and the platform turned into the waterfall we see today.

Chang Hai (Long Lake)
 
Chang Hai (Long Lake) has an average altitude of 3060 meters, with a maximum of 4457 meters. It originates from the deep rounding ranges of mountains. Extending about 8 kilometers from north to south and 4.4 kilometers from east to west, it covers an area of about 2 million square meters. It has a maximum depth of 103 meters. It is the largest and highest lake in Jiuzhaigou Valley. Opposite to the lake, snow-capped mountains are elevated about 4000 to 5000 meters, with typical glacier landscapes of cirques and u-shaped valleys. In spring and autumn, Long Lake is more fantastic: the reflection of flowers clustering around the ice-covered peaks in the water and the scenery of yellow leaves and red maples grow around the lake. Another spectacle is of water that neither brims over the bank in the rainy summer and fall nor ever runs dry in the winter and spring. Local Tibetans praise it as “a precious gourd that will never be poured full or dried up.” During the bitter winters, the lake is frozen over with a depth of 60 cm.

Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area
 
The ‘World Wonder’ and ‘Fairy Land on Earth’ are names enjoyed by the Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area, which is well known for its colorful lakes, snow clad mountains, valleys and virgin forest. It was included in the UNESCO world heritage list in 1992. The Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area is located in Songpan County, in the northwest part of Sichuan Province and encompasses the Huanglong and Muni Valley. Huanglong’s major scenery is concentrated in the 3.6-kilometer (2.2 miles) long Huanglong Valley that includes snow-clad peaks and the easternmost glaciers in China. Due to its layered calcium carbonated deposit patterns, the valley resembles a golden dragon winding its way through the virgin forest, stone mountains and glaciers. Scattered along the valley are numerous colorful ponds of different sizes and shapes. These ponds are strewn with gold colored limestone deposit giving a shimmering golden hue to water, so in sunlight, a golden dragon seems to surge forth from the forest. Thus it was named ‘Huanglong Valley’ (Yellow Dragon Valley). Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area are famed for its outstanding travertine (calcium carbonate) formations. With the virgin forest as its backdrop, the travertine scenery encompasses colorful ponds, beaches, lakes, springs, waterfalls, caves, etc. The travertine formations scenery is No.1 in China.

Upon entering the scenic area, a group of exquisite, crystal clear ponds will immediately capture your attention with their unparalleled and aesthetic charm. These are the Yingbin (“welcoming guests”) Colored Ponds. In spring, the luxuriant trees, blooming flowers, butterflies and birdsongs enhance their allure even more. From the ponds you can view the interwoven reflection of trees, mountains, clouds and sky, which is a veritable feast to the eyes. Along the valley, you will see many attractions including Feipuliuhui (“glowing waterfall”), Xishen (“washing body”) Cave, Penjing (“miniascape”) Ponds, Huanglong (“yellow dragon”) Temple, Huanglong Cave, Shitazhenhai and Zhuanhua (“whirling flower”) Pond, and so forth. In the Huanglong Cave, there are three sitting Buddha figures whose bodies are encrusted with calc-sinter crystals. In winter, ice forest, bamboo shoots and waterfalls, etc., form a magical icy scene. Shitazhenhai is the most beautiful attraction in Huanglong. The calcium carbonate deposits give a myriad of different hues to the water, which is truly breathtaking. Zhuanhua Pond is crystal clear and the spring water never stops welling up. If you throw flowers or leaves into the pond, they will swirl rhythmically with the flow of the water.
