Jiuzhaigou Autumn Scenery

Crisp air, blue sky, gorgeous autumn foliage set against snow capped peaks; this is Jiuzhaigou in fall, no doubt the best time to visit to this legendary natural paradise.

Jiuzhaigou in southwest China's Sichuan province is a great introduction to China's diverse and unbelievable landscape. It is an extravaganza of natural wonders, a pure unspoiled land which contains waterfalls, alpine lakes, tranquil grasslands, snowy mountains views and Tibetan villages. You won't know what the area will offer until you have been there. Jiuzhaigou is incredibly picturesque particularly in autumn when the mountains, valleys, lakes are shrouded in autumn colors. Fall in Jiuzhaigou means no bugs and fewer people combined with warm days, cool nights, and great vistas of saturated yellows, reds, and green mixed with the blue lake water.

Jiuzhaigou is a world of water. More than 100 lakes of varying sizes are scattered through the valley. These lakes with brilliant colors are called 'Haizi' meaning sea by the local Tibetan people. Placed in a stepped-like fashion, the lakes are connected by waterfalls. Pure and clear as they are, the lakes of Jiuzhaigou have gorgeous colors. The colors of the lakes change with the variance in light angle and the intensity and the changing of seasons. Autumn comes, the lake is clear and quite reflecting the blue sky, fluffy clouds high above and the snow-capped mountains mixed with the autumn foliage on the bank. As a cool breeze gently blows the water ripples and the tranquil atmosphere that gives a sign of the fall season and the approaching winter. The mountains surrounding these lakes blaze with flaming reds, oranges and golds, painting a vivid contrast against the clear blue autumn sky.

Jiuzhaigou is the last home to many endangered animals and rare plants. The primeval forest at Jiuzhaigou is nearly 30,000 acres and contains more than 2,500 rare plants and a dozen rare animals under state protection. This list includes the panda, which is also found here. Fall is the best season to watch animals. As the stagnant summer air is replenished by a crisp wind, flocks of rare animals can be seen leaping and skipping among the valley. Birds are singing cheerfully in the jungle. 

Jiuzhaigou is a place where Tibet culture flourishes. In the valley there are nine Tibetan villages. Local people live a simple and traditional life. Fall is the busiest season for farmers in China and this is no exception for the peasants in Jiuzhaigou. In the late September, locals are busy with autumn harvest. It is a good opportunity to view traditional Chinese ways of harvest.
