Nine Villages Valley
4 days from $1,860 per person twin share
The beautiful alpine Jiuzhaigou Valley takes its name from the nine Tibetan villages scattered throughout the valley. It is a place of natural wonders with thick forests, 114 turquoise lakes, springs, waterfalls and streams. Legend tells of a goddess who was given a mirror by the mountain deity who was in love with her. When the devil materialised, the goddess dropped the mirror, shattering it into 114 pieces, which resulted in the valley’s magnificent lakes.
