To its south is the Huanglong (Yellow Dragon Scenic Area).

In 1992, UNESCO entered this scenic area onto the world natural heritage list.Jiuzhaigou, literally the Nine Village Valley, is hence known for the nine Tibetan villages within its boundary, Inhabited by Tibetans, the nine villages and alpine lakes, are like reflecting mirrors or crystal jade blocks inlaid in snow mountains and forests.

“Amazing- turquoise waters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

This is an amazing place and one of my favourites. The turquoise waters were stunning. The locals also come here in the busloads so if you can, walk it (there is pedestrian walkway). In that way, you stay away from the local crowds and you can soak your feet in the waterfall after a long day of walking.

There are supposed to be pandas in this park but we never saw any. That was the only down side.

We stayed overnight in the park - make sure you ask for a place with Hot water. They heat up the waters in order to give you a much deserved shower.

“Wow not to be missed if you can get there.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

All I can say is worth the visit. We went there by bus on a Chinese tour and I would thoroughly recommend doing this. Even though we were the only Europeans it was a great experience and we wouldn't have got that doing a fly in fly out. But Juizhaigou Park is just fantastic. We saw it just at the beginning of their Autumn so it was still green not much colour change. But wow the lakes are just crystal clear and even though they are all crystal clear, everyone of them are a wow factor. Just get your head around the number of people that will be there. The Chinese holiday within China so there are a lot of them. But well worth the visit.

A must see place, At the top of the mountain air a bit thin a little difficult breath. A lot of walking but stunning views.

“Amazingly beautiful feats of nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

A must see in China, this is really beatiful. Oly one prblem: very crowded! The Chinese want to visit this beautiful park thelselves as well, and ther's lots of them. So patience is key. But it really is worth your visit.

“Glorious scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

This place is wonderful. The autumn scenery, turquoise lakes and good infrastructure makes it an easy place to visit. There are jump on jump off buses running regularly and a good place to eat. Be warned, there are a lot of stairs if you really want to see it all but we are fit nearly seventy year olds and managed, Just.
