Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong Valleys, Sichuan, China


Jiuzhaigou (literally Valley of Nine Villages) is a nature reserve and declared UNESCO World Heritage site in Sichuan, south western China. In autumn, the place is a fairyland of colourful foliage and bright aqua lakes, most intense being the Five Color Lake.
