Jiuzhaigou means `Nine-Villages Valley', home to nine Tibetan villages. The place is dotted with more than 100 gorgeous lakes, which differ from others by having a high concentration of calcium carbonate, so that the lakebeds and embankments are all covered with crystals. The water is so clear that the bottom is visible despite depths of several dozen meters. Waterfalls are the essence of the scenery in Jiuzhaigou. They are created between lakes on different levels with water flowing down the cliffs.
Jiuzhaigou was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1992.
