Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong are considered to be one of the most beautiful scenic parks is China. Both are located in the remote, northern part of Sichuan Province. Parks are extremely popular during summer months when are virtually flooded by herds of mainly Chinese tourists. The road connecting Chengdu and Jiuzhaigo has been recently upgraded and the journey, although possible in one long day is usually takes two days and is extremely picturesque. Huanglong is only accessible from May till late autumn (depends on the snow). Both areas have been granted Worls Heritage status.

Huanglong National Natural Conservation Area is often called "The fabulous world on Earth". It stretches along the yellow dragon-like Maishan river, creating series of colourfull ponds and waterfalls. Hundreds of emerald and turquoise small ponds and waterfalls form unbelievable travertine spectacle.
The winding and scenic road leading to Huanglong passes through 4200 metres high pass which provides beautiful view over surrounding dolomite mountains, deep valleys and snow-covered cone of
Xuebaoding (5588 m).
