Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area

This card was in my wish list for a long time until oopsdada, from China, sent it to me. I think it’s a wonderful scenery, specially the colours in it.

The Jiuzhaigou Valley (lit. Translation: Valley of Nine Villages) is located in Sichuan, China and it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. It features colourful lakes and multi-layered waterfalls, forests and snowy mountains. The water in the lakes is crystal clear, allowing visitors to see their bottoms criss-crossed by ancient fallen tree trunks. The best time to visit is in the autumn because the forests turn into an attractive yellow, orange and red shade.

This site is definitely in my “to visit list”.
