China ~ Jiu Zhai GouPosted on Sep 07 in Chinaby ShelynPrint
The fantastic and unusual fairyland of Jiu Zhai Gou, as the only scenery spot in China that has won three international awards including World Natural Heritage, World Biosphere Protection Zone and Green Globe 21, is a wonderful land with its breath-taking beauty – wonderful, colorful, deamlike, pure and elegant.
Jiu Zhai Gou is located in Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous, northwest of Sichuan province. Jiu Zhai Gou adjoins Gansu Province. The name “Jiu Zhai Gou” originates from the nine Tibetan villages there.
The beauty of Jiu Zhai Gou lies in its color instead of its appearance. The mountains are grand, green and magnificent; the water is clear, pure and wonderful; the forests are green, lush and prosperous.
Many people said Jiu Zhai Gou is a must visit place for at least 4 times in life due to its unique enchantment in all 4 different seasons. Especially during Autumn in mid Oct when the reeds turn into yellow, orange and red making Jiu Zhai Gou particularly colorful and a popular season for visitors. But also because autumn is the peak season for visiting, you’ll probably spend most of the time lamenting the crazy crowds than marveling at all the glorious sights.
That was why I chose to visit during the low season, winter. It was freezing cold and full with uniqueness and mysterious.
Look at some photos that I took during my visit in winter. But my photographic skill kinda sucks few years back especially I let the date and the time displayed in the pictures!!
