Life 101: Exploring the beautiful JiuZhaiGou (九寨沟)

JiuZhaiGou (九寨沟) Valley National Park is situated in the Sichuan province of China. It is about 3000-4000m above sea levels. It is a beautifully preserved national park with a lot of breathtaking sceneries. I was there in June 2014 and I fell in love with the place. If there was a tourist attraction that I would recommend (having explored quite a few last year), it would be JiuZhaiGou, hands down.

The tranquility offered by JiuZhaiGou is the main selling point of this national park. The tourists were surprisingly all well behaved and didn’t ruin the serenity of the place. The whole park was generally well kept, rubbish were thrown in where they were supposed to, waters were clear and people walked where they were supposed to and it was generally clean.

I didn’t have a good camera on me so my pictures don’t do the place justice but I hope it gives you an idea of how beautiful the place is, and tempt you to visit JiuZhaiGou because it’s truly worth the journey 🙂

This was actually taken in Huang Long (黄龙), which is 4000m above sea levels and another beautiful place to take in all the nice scenery. Everyone visits Huang Long together with JiuZhaiGou as part of their trips.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the beautiful JiuZhaiGou National Park, Sichuan. 🙂
