Summary


NOT far from Sichuan’s Jiuzhaigou, a well-known national park and World Heritage Site on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, is a place devoid of human habitation. High above sea level and without readily available telecommunications or transport, this lonely paradise features breathtaking natural scenery unspoiled by humans. Locals call it Qizang Valley.The only way to enter it is on foot or horseback, and visitors must bring their own accommodation in the form of tents.
Qizang Valley contains some of the best lakes in Songpan. While Qizang Valley is the name for the region at large, each valley within has its own name and distinct features such as lakes and mountain peaks. It is home to well known geological features such as Long Lake, Hongxing Lake, and Hongxing Mountain.
