Visit jiuzhaigou

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park is famous in China for its remarkable natural phenomena. Located in the north of Sichuan Province, on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, the diverse forest ecosystems of the park house a diverse array of flora and fauna and boast many topographical features of exceptional beauty.

Within the park, the main attractions are its various glacial lakes, many of which are brightly hued, some translucent, some mirrored. The names of the lakes - Five Flower Lake, Swan Lake, Reed Lake, Mirror Lake and so on - provide some insight into their beauty. Aside from lakes, there are pine forests, waterfalls, majestic valleys, towering peaks and remote Tibetan villages to explore
