Scenes from JiuZhaiGou 九寨沟
JiuZhaiGou Valley (九寨沟), literally 'Nine Villages Valley', is a nature reserve and national park located in the north of SiChuan province, near the GanSu border. JiuZhaiGou is part of the MinShan mountains on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, and is known for its many multi-level waterfalls, colorful mineral lakes and snow-capped peaks. The elevation ranges from 2,000 to 4,500 meters (6,600 to 14,800 feet). It lies 330 km (205 miles) north of the provincial capital of Chengdu and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This remote region has been inhabited by various Tibetan and Qiang peoples for many centuries. The valleys here are lined with 55 km of roads for shuttle buses, as well as wooden boardwalks and small pavilions. The boardwalks are typically located on the opposite side of the lakes from the roads. Many visitors will first take the shuttle bus to the end of RiZe or ShuZheng valley, then make their way back downhill by foot on the boardwalks, taking the bus when the next site is deemed too distant. JiuZhaiGou is a ten hour bus ride from ChengDu, or one can fly from ChengDu or ChongQing to JiuZhai HuangLong Airport, then take an hour long bus ride to HuangLong, or a 90 minute ride to JiuZhaiGou. There is also a daily flight to Xi'An, in the peak season, and from BeiJing, ShangHai and HangZhou.

The waves of the sea soundlessly drowns out the night, Overflowing from the edges of the sky. Big Fish is swimming in the gaps of dreamscape, Gazing upon your slumbering form. Look - the sea and sky are of the same color, Listen - raising winds and falling rain. Take your hand, blow away the endless mist. Big Fish's wings are too vast, I release the ropes of time. I fear you'd fly far, Far away from me. But I fear even more so that you stay here forever. Every drop of tear, they flow to you. Falling into the depths of the sky. The waves of the sea soundlessly drowns out the night, Overflowing from the edges of the sky. Big Fish is swimming in the gaps of dreamscape, Gazing upon your slumbering form. Look; the sea and sky are of the same color, Listen; raising winds and falling rain. Take your hand, blow away the endless mist. Big Fish's wings are too vast, I release the ropes of time. Watch you fly far, so far, Far away from me. It was true, you were born for the Heavens. Every drop of tear, they all flow to you. Falling back to the first time we met. Falling back to the first time we met. Falling back to ... the first time ... we met.
