I can't believe this is China. Beautiful scenery and fresh air. The mountains have snow on the tops and green trees covering the areas further down. There are even birds and squirrels running around if you keep an eye out. The beautiful coloured waters and...More
We were there at the end of the dry season but it was still beautiful. There are pictures around that show you what a particular area is like with more water. As well as the pools, there is a large temple and caves. Our flight...More
I visited the valley in the middle of May, my fault for sure. Unfortunately it's still dried up, hardly any water in the rivers and lakes. It kind of makes you sadder because you get a glimpse of how it could look like in it's...More
