Big blue lake and the recommended starting point of the hike back to the last bus stop towards the park entrance. It is not the most beautiful one.

I stayed in China for 3.5 years and saw and visited many places. Mainly I was disappointed but here finally surprised. What a clean and colorful water / ground. Let's see how long it will stay like that...

The reflection of the mountain on this lake is wonderful, one of the best scenic spot in the valley.

It is a very beautiful scenic place but I don't know why it is called a rhinoceros lake. Try as I might I can't find the shape of a rhinoceros.

I really liked to walk along the area, do the walk on the side opposite to the road, beautiful and peaceful, you will enjoy all the rivers and small lakes

Nice lake with reflections of the surrounding mountains. Calm water makes it a perfect photo opportunity. Again, as with most lakes in Jiuzhaiguo Natural Reserve, make sure you take the trail to the far side of the lake to avoid any crowds.

Rhinoceros Lake is a small lake near Shuzheng Waterfalls. Visitors should not miss this spot to take photographs of mountains and sky reflected beautifully in the lake. It is really stunning view especially at evening time.
