Juizhaigou National Park

Juizhaigou National Park is one of the most beautiful parks in all of Asia. The color of the water is natural from the minerals in the park. Waterfalls and the ability to walk over cascading water down the hill sides brings nature right below your feet. Wooden walkways go all through the park for walking and hiking any miles or you can ride a Green Bus from stop to stop all through the park too. Convenient "Green" modern toilets are available everywhere the bus stops. This area was discovered in 1975 and opened to the public soon after and has been carefully developed using the latest Green methods of preservation.  Only 5,000 people are allowed in the park in one day to keep it pristine so be sure you have a ticketed reservation before going to this area. Qunawu Valley which before now has not been open to the public was just opened and is unspoiled and has many animals, forests and lakes to enjoy.   Check out other national parks as well as some of the famous mountains like Taishan, Huashan and Huangshan for more fantastic beauty and hiking.  Click on the photos for a full screen view!
