CHENGDU, 九寨沟 - DAY 3!

12 APR 2012

 It was quite a hassle for us to reach here.. because it was raining.
We bought poncho and walked a distance before we finally reached here..  along the way there were MANY people which somehow hinder our advancement.

On our way up !
as you can see some here.. some of the aunties still in ponchos. :)

First sight of a very nice and blue water of 九寨沟!

Jiuzhaigou Valley (simplified Chinese: 九寨沟; traditional Chinese: 九寨溝; pinyin: Jiǔzhàigōu; literally "Valley of Nine Villages" is a nature reserve and national park located in northern Sichuan province of southwestern China. Jiuzhaigou Valley is part of the Min Mountains on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau and stretches over 72,000 hectares (180,000 acres). It is known for its many multi-level waterfalls, colorful lakes, and snow-capped peaks. Its elevation ranges from 2,000 to 4,500 metres (6,600 to 14,800 ft).
Jiuzhaigou Valley was inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1992 and a World Biosphere Reserve in 1997.
