I went as part of a group tour, with my husband and young son. I've heard lots about the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve, and pre-earthquake, it must have been a wonderful place to hike and spend some time in amazing scenery. It's still beautiful, and breathtakingly...More

The view is insanely good, the water is either super clear such that you can directly see the bottom of the lake or so surreally coloured that you think it is supernatural.

Due to bad weather, we drove for two days and walked four hours on mountain roads, to participate in the Tibetan villagers worship of they call God's Mountain. It was very special. The cultural show is amazing, and the highlight of my past ten days...More
