  • Jiuzhaigou water is really nothing to say. It's clear. A few meters deep water crystal clear, like not deep River. There are too many people in the tourist season, too hot. After the earthquake, hope to glow the glory of the past

  • Great Park, lakes with breathtaking color changing according to the exhibition. We went there this April 29: the Park is reopened in part since March as a result of the earthquake. There are still a lot of work for the reclamation, but the organization is at the top. Shuttle buses take visitors to areas, a restaurant is available within the Park. The Lakes have been preserved. Attention Park has more than 2000 people per day instead of the 20,000 previously, in anticipation of the reclamation.
