Jiuzhaigou Valley, lying in Jiuzhaigou County, Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Northwestern Sichuan Province, is 128 km away from Huanglong Scenic Spot. It gained its name because there are nine ancient Tibetan villages in the valley. Jiuzhaigou Valley is possessed with high tour and visual value, as well as scientific value, so it is hailed as “Wonderland on Earth” and “Fairy Tale World”.
Jiuzhaigou Valley is featured by a splendid landscape of natural view. The water accounts for the most beautiful scenery in the valley. The waterfalls flow down from different heights; the lakes of various sizes reflect the red leaves, green trees, snow-capped peaks and blue sky. The views vary from one place to another. Water flows around tree roots and the trees grow in water. It has been accurately observed that one never wishes to see another waterscape after seeing that of the Jiuzhaigou Valley.
