Lying on the highest mesa in the world between the Sichuan Basin and the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, Jiuzhaigou Valley is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site because of the large number of lake groups, waterfalls and rich variety of endangered plants. Sally, a client of WindhorseTour said, “There are so many great views in Jiuzhaigou Valley! Very restful as we wanted.”

It covers a smaller area and proudly stands in its tranquil and undisturbed alpine beauty, offering a unique landscape for those who want to have an alternative experience in Jiuzhaigou.
