Ever heard of the green and blue lakes tucked in one of the many mountain ranges in China? Then you should definitely check out Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve!

Five Flower Lake in Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve

 

 

Known as the Nine Village Valley in English, the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve or Jiuzhai Valley is a premier national park situated in South Western China’s Mt. Min Shan. 
 
Because of the super clear lakes, one-of-a-kind wildlife, magnificent falls and land forms of narrow conic karst, the Jiuzhai Valley is now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 
Read on to know more about useful travel tips when visiting Jiuzhai Valley.
 
1. Clothes
 
Don’t be fooled by the warmth you enjoy during your day tour as the temperature will predictably drop at night. So you better pack up clothes to keep you warm as well as other necessary medications.
 
2. Protection
 
For some reason, you could expose yourself to too much UV rays when at the top, so make sure that you apply sunscreen and wear a hat or cap during your day tour. 
 
3. What to Include in the Tour
 
Make enough time to visit the entire valley to appreciate its real beauty. Although one- to two-day tours are available, three days allow you to check out the Shuzheng Quanhai Ditch and Zharu Temple in the first day. During your second day, you could check out Rizhe Ditch as well as the primitive forest, while spare the Zhezhawa Ditch, Long Sea and Huanglong Temple for your third day tour.
 
In general, visiting Sichuan province just to see the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve is a must-do activity when in China.
 

So start planning your trip to Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve today!
