Jiuzhaigou Valley -jewels of nature

Surprisingly, the park has a theater staging a 3-D reality show of stories about Tibetan and Qiang people who've inhabited the area for years. It costs me 260 yuan ($42, including the ticket for Jiuzhaigou Valley) to experience a spiritual trip close to the local people's life. The dreamy lakes are relived on a 3-D projection screen, with those hues of blue, green and yellow that will stay in my mind forever.

Autumn is the best time to visit the Jiuzhaigou Valley, when all the trees turn red and yellow. You can fly to Chengdu first and then fly for another hour to the Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport.

The scenic spot is about 88 kilometers away. Rent a car and book your hotel in advance, as the transportation and hotel rooms are limited.

The closest hotel to Jiuzhaigou Valley is the Tianyuan Hao-sheng Hotel (400-8888-518).

The ticket to explore the valley costs 220 yuan ($35) per person. There are shuttle buses in the valley, which make it very convenient for you to go from one lake to another.

Bring a light down jacket as the temperature varies dramatically between day and night.
