Nine Villages Valley

The Nine Villages Valley, or Jiuzhaigou, is named for the nine Tibetan villages that call it home. Encircled by snow-capped peaks this UNESCO-listed national park of blue-toned lakes, rushing waterfalls and thick forest is not only visually spectacular but also filled with diverse flora and fauna. Whilst the scenery transforms with the seasons it is always breath-taking. Visit in the autumn when leaves in a rainbow of colours are reflected in the crystalline waters, or in the winter when the trees sparkle with frost and waterfalls freeze mid-flow.

Located in Sichuan, 350 kilometres north of Chengdu and reachable by road or by a short flight, Jiuzhaigou’s beauty is also easily accessible, with broadwalks leading you through forest and around lakes, and roads and trails to take you throughout the park.
