You will take a morning flight from Chengdu to Jiuzhaigou. Our local guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you to visit Huanglong Scenic and Historical Interest Area, a gem in China natural scenery tours. Situated in Songpan County in the northwest of Sichuan, Huanglong is famous for its colorful lakes, snow-capped peaks, glaciers, mountain landscape, diverse forest ecosystems, waterfall and hot springs. The Multi-colored Ponds of different sizes and shapes show various dreamlike colors of yellow, blue, green and brown. In this fairyland, there is also an ancient temple, Huanglong Monastery, which was said to be built in the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). When visiting the temple, you can have a short rest there. Afterwards, you will proceed to Jiuzhaigou for a two-night stay.

Day03 Jiuzhaigou
Huanglong scenic spots
Today you will have a full day sightseeing to Jiuzhaigou Valley Scenic and Historic Interest Area, the most highlight during the Chengdu to Jiuzhaigou tour itinerary. The well-known Jiuzhaigou Valley is a 35-kilometer long valley with diverse natural beauty. It consists of three main valleys which are at an altitude of about 2,500 meters. The 60,000 hectares of fairyland includes well-protected virgin forests, 108 clear lakes, verdant mountains, and gorgeous waterfalls. The famous attractions you will encounter are the Multi-colored Lake, the Nuorilong Fall, the Long Lake and the Pearl Beach. 

The Multi-colored Lake is the smallest but most colorful lake in Jiuzhaigou Valley, and is famous for a profusion of colors and limpidity. You will see the colors of azure, light green and orange in the same pond. The Nuorilang Fall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the valley. In Tibetan language, Nuorilang means majestic and grand waterfall. The surging currents rush passionately and dash down in a series of cascades. In the morning, many rainbows can be seen hanging up over the waterfall, which makes the Nuorilang Fall more charming and attractive. When coming to the Long Lake, you will see the s-shape lake meandering in the valley and the crystal water reflecting the snow-capped peaks, verdant forests, blue sky and white clouds. The Pearl Beach is a large calc-sinter flow fanned out the scraggy beach. The clear waters race down the pale yellow beach and tumble down the rocks, throwing up drops of spray, resembling pearls gleaming in the sunshine. 

Tips: In Jiuzhaigou scenic attraction area there is only one cafeteria with many people queuing up at the buffet all the time. Also, it offers inferior food and poor service that can not come up to our standard, so we do not arrange lunch for you today. We suggest you have a hearty breakfast in the hotel and take some snacks with you to renew physical vigor.

Meals: Chinese breakfast, Dinner
Day04 Jiuzhaigou - Chengdu -Dujiangyan
Jiuzhaigou scenic area
