#5 of 14 in Nature in Huangshan
Emerald Valley features more than 100 emerald ponds that seem to change color depending on the position of sun with the predominate shade being emerald. Some visitors bring a padlock to place on the bridge over the creek as they ask for luck and love in the valley, which is also known as the Lovers Valley. Watch and listen for small waterfalls throughout the lush area.
