Jiuzhaigou

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park is famous in China for its remarkable natural phenomena. Located in the north of Sichuan Province, on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, the diverse forest ecosystems of the park house a diverse array of flora and fauna and boast many topographical features of exceptional beauty.

Within the park, the main attractions are its various glacial lakes, many of which are brightly hued, some translucent, some mirrored. The names of the lakes - Five Flower Lake, Swan Lake, Reed Lake, Mirror Lake and so on - provide some insight into their beauty. Aside from lakes, there are pine forests, waterfalls, majestic valleys, towering peaks and remote Tibetan villages to explore

Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park

The park itself is immense and has many walking and hiking trails. You can visit the major sites within in on foot, taking the bus to attractions at the very top of the park. Three valleys make up the park – Rize Valley, Zechawa Valley and Shuzheng Valley, each with their own unique set of natural phenomena. It takes at least a full day to see each site – two days to cover the entire park will allow you to enjoy it at a more relaxed pace. The park draws many domestic tourists each day.

Qu Nae Valley

This picturesque valley sets the scene for nature walks and wilderness hikes. As part of the park, it's a protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is home to Sichuan takin (a type of cattle), and Chinese goral (a type of goat). Only recently open to tourists, you can still see it in a largely untouched state, and enjoy seeing bird and wildlife activity. There is a selection of hikes through the valley.

The Jiuzhaigou National Arts Center

Here you can enjoy a Tibetan / Qiang minority folk performance – a colorful display with bright costumes and lively dance. Highland barley tea and yak butter tea are offered to complete this cultural experience.

Zharu Valley

This quiet valley offers eco-tourism and is seldom visited by domestic travelers. It houses small, colorful Tibetan villages and offers great opportunities for trekking and camping. Shuzheng Village is one Tibetan village within the valley where travelers can homestay with locals and enjoy traditional Tibetan meals and yak butter tea. A predominant feature of the valley is the sacred Zha Yi Zha Ga Mountain, around which you can do a three-day pilgrimage hike. The valley has around 20 miles of walking and hiking trails, some quite steep.
