Favorite thing: The name " Jiu zhai gou" means "9 villages valley". The name comes from 9 Tibetan villages in the valley. Since 1991 Jiuzhaigou is UNESCO World Nature Heritage.

Jiuzhaigou is situated about 400 km northwest of Chengdu. There is an airport inSongpan, from where a 1,5 hours busride takes you to the park.

The landscape characteristics are high mountains (Ganzigonggai, 4558 m), 114 lakes, rivers and waterfalls.

Rare animals are living here: for example the Giant Panda or the Sichuan Takin, some kind of monkeys and more (I do not know the names in English). I did not see any of this wild animals.

I found a list of all the lakes, waterfalls and mountains in the internet.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
