Jiuzhaigou Valley Scenic Area

During October 21-28 my friends and I went to Jiuzhaigou Valley Scenic Area, China. Located in the north of Sichuan Province, Jiuzhaigou is a national park of China and has been declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1992. Our group consists of 19 people. We flew to Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, and rode a tour bus to Jiuzhaigou, which took about 10 hours. Along the way we visited many interesting places, such as temples, dam, panda reserve center, etc.
