Jiuzhaigou Valley - aka The Valley of Nine Villages. Populated by tiny little Tibetan villages. The Crystalline Lake has a distinctive turquoise color. The Five Flower Lake’s bottom is criss-crossed by ancient tree trunks. Three mini valleys comprise Jiuzhaigao in a “Y” shape. The valley houses preserved ancient woodland, travertine pools, marshes, and other lakes and waterfalls rich in local folklore.
