Sichuan UNESCO World Heritage Jiuzhai Valley——The Lying Dragon 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.
Lying Dragon Lake
Lying Dragon Lake, also known as Sleeping Dragon Lake, is one of the lower lakes in the area. With a depth of 20 m, it is notable for the clearly visible calcareous dyke running through it, whose shape has been compared to a dragon lying on the bottom.
