Full day tour in the Jiuzhaigou National Park to find the flowers and take photos.

Jiuzhaigou is named after the nine Tibetan villages in the scenic area. As the water, the “soul of Jiuzhaigou”, is purely and crystal-like clear and rich in colors, there goes the saying that no water is worth your attention after your visit to Jiuzhaigou. The water, the reflection on the bank, the stone mill, the Tibetan villages, the Buddhist streamers and the songs and dances of the Tibetan and Qiang people constitute the unique tourist culture of Jiuzhaigou. 114 green lakes, 47 springs, 17 over flying waterfall groups, 11 sections of turbulent streams, 5 Karst shoals, vast primitive forest and three Tibetan villages are distributed among the three valleys. It has an area of 1320 square km. including 30,000 hectares of primitive forest where are living 2576 proto species including scores of state-protected animals and plants such as the giant panda, golden monkey and mono-leaf grass.
