Jiuzhaigou, Huanglong, Zoige and Langmusi tour


huanglong nature


Jiuzhaigou is located in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang Ethnic Autonomous Prefecture in western Sichuan Province. Nine ethnic Tibetan villages are scattered across the valley, so it's called Jiuzhaigou, or the nine-village-valley. The magic of Jiuzhaigou lies in the water, which is also where Jiuzhaigou's spirit resides. More than 100 alpine lakes of different sizes and brilliant colors are scattered in the valley. The water is so pure and clear, you can count the pebbles, floating grass and fallen tree branches at the bottom. All the crystal-clear lakes have gorgeous colors, sometimes blue like sapphires or green like emeralds, and decorated with bright yellow touches. It was included on the UNESCO World Natural Heritage List in 1992.

One hundred thirty kilometers away from Jiuzhaigou Valley is another great scenic spot: Huanglong Park. It was also in the World Natural Heritage List, included in the same year as Jiuzhaigou Valley. Huanglong is surrounded by damp forests, mountains, coniferous woods and grasslands. The region's big attraction is the karst formations that surface in the form of limestone pools, shoals and travertine falls. The water is crystal clear and contains all kinds of minerals, drawn from the limestone mountain behind it. Each small pool displays heartbreakingly beautiful colors that would defy any painter's palette.

Langmusi, on the Sichuan-Gansu border, boasts not one but two enchanting eighteenth-century lamaseries, Serti Gompa and Kerti Gompa. The views from the hills on the edge of the village over the endless maze of gold-roofed monastery buildings and monks’ dormitories are spectacular.
