四川 UNESCO世界 自然遗产 九寨沟——扎如沟 宝镜崖 扎如寺
Sichuan Province

  Jiuzhaigou is a scenic area of outstanding beauty in southwest China’s Sichuan province. The World Heritage-listed spot is situated about 400 kilometers north of the province’s capital city, Chengdu, and is over 80 kilometers long, covering an area of 60,000 hectares. ‘Jiuzhaigou’ means ‘Nine Village Valley’ and refers to the nine villages of Tibetan people here.

 The spot was discovered by some woodcutters in the 1970s and was so admired over the next few years that it was consequently listed as one of the most important scenic spots in China in 1982. By 1992 Jiuzhaigou had become one of China’s 33 World Heritage sites, including E’Mei Mountain and Huangshan Mountain.
 There are six scenic spots in the Jiuzhaigou area: Changhai, Jianyan, Nuorilang, Shuzheng, Zharu and Heihai. Its double waterfalls, snowy peaks, colorful forests and green seas have made Jiuzhaigou known throughout the world. The area also has the added charm of Tibetan culture.
 The Zharu Valley runs southeast from the main Shu Zheng gully, beginning at the Zharu Buddhist Monastery and ending at the Red, Black, and Daling lakes.Zharu is the home of all the eco-tourism activities in Jiuzhai Valley and is the only place that visitors can stay overnight inside the national park by joining one of the hiking and camping tours.
Approximately one kilometer into Zharu Valley against a backdrop of green mountains and facing the Mirror Cliff is Zharu Monastery. Built of wood and clay, it is a typical Tibetan monastery, comprising of six parts: the main hall, scripture tower, music platform, tea house and guest hall.The giant and flat Mirror Cliff climbs 400 meters from the Emerald River below. Legend has it that the Mirror Cliff was built up by Zha Yi Zha Ga, the king of all mountains, to suppress a cruel demon.
