JiuZhaigou Valley—九寨沟

As the saying goes: You don't want to enjoy the beauty of other mountains after you have paid a visit to Mount Huangshan, nor do you intend to experience the wonder of any other scenic water when you have returned from Jiuzhaigou Valley.

Jiuzhaigou, in Chinese is 九寨沟, (literally "Nine Village Valley") takes its name from the nine Tibetan villages along its length. It is known for its many multi-level waterfalls, colorful lakes, and snow-capped peaks. Its elevation ranges from 2,000 m to 4,500 m.Jiuzhaigou Valley was inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1992 and a World Biosphere Reserve in 1997. It belongs to the category V (Protected Landscape) in the IUCN system of protected area categorization. From the time you enter the Jiuzhaigou Valley scenic area, you’ll start a journey in where you’ll talk to the water, sing with the birds and dance with the waterfalls. All you need to do in Jiuzhaigou is to forget everything, just relax, relax and relax…
