I am mesmerized with the beauty of this lake. Never in my life I have seen such crystal clear water in most beautiful shade of blue. The sheer, unspoiled beauty of this scenic lake and surrounding primeval forest is a unique and rare wonder that should not be missed. The water is so clear that you could see the fallen ancient tree trunks that criss crossed each other beneath the water surface. No wonder Jiuzhaigou is renowned for being one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
The Tibetans that live in this area consider the lake a sacred place for its healing waters. It is helpful for some skin ailments. The waters are rich in minerals, and lake bed deposits look like jadeite and agate. The area has been described as a "fairy land" by many because of its glistening, pure water and its colorful meadow flora nearby. Snow-capped mountains provide a stunning backdrop for the entire scene.
Jiuzhaigou is located in the north of Sichuan, China. You can take a bus to Jiuzhaigou from Chengdu which costs around ¥145 p.p (USD$24). It's Entrance fee is: ¥310 (USD$50.50). #travelChina#china#lake#naturalbeauty#nature#peace#loveofnature#natural#waterpark#jiuzhaigoulake#china#traveltheworld#beautiful#beautifuldestinations
