Sichuan UNESCO World Heritage Jiuzhai Valley National Park——Five flowers lake
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.
  Five flowers lake is the quintessence of natural beauty in Jiuzhaigou, featuring an exquisite patchwork of colors: pale red, bright yellow, greenish black, dark blue and pale blue. It is located at the upper reaches of Kongque River in Rize Valley at an altitude of 2,472 meters. The entire shimmering surface of the lake covers an area of nearly 90,000 square meters.
 The amazing and colorful phenomenon is a result of the distributional difference of calcium deposits, algae, ferns and sunken plants on the bottom of the lake. The gorgeous color cluster of the lake looks like a huge baldric studded with numerous gems, resplendent and distinguished.
