Unbelievable Sight

In China, there is such a saying: " Sichuan has the most beautiful water in the country." And i totally agreed. Jiu Zhao Gou is situated in Sichuan, situated at 2500m above sea-level. It consist of tibetian Tribe, therefore you see alot of tibetian architecture and culture there.

Pearl Shoal Waterfall

JiuZhaoGou has the most beautiful waterfall in the country. A lot of sight in JiuZhaoGou are the backdrop for many movies and drama series. Taking Pearl Shoal Waterfall, whoever familiar with the making of The Monkey God will find this place very familiar.

Arrow Bamboo Lake - The making of HERO

Arrow Bamboo Lake is another famous sight in JiuZhaoGou as this is the fliming sight for the movie " HERO". I heard from the guide that the movie is flim very early in the morning as the water is very calm at that time, so is able to achieve a very beautiful mirror reflection. After 7am, it will be very windy.

Why is it call Arrow Bamboo Lake?? Well it is because the place has grow alot of arrow bamboo which is the favourite food for the panda.
