Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area

Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area is studded with colorful pools of limestone formations, snow-clad mountains, diverse forest ecosystems, as well as waterfalls and hot springs. The area also has a population of endangered animals, including the giant panda and the Sichuan golden snub-nosed Monkey.

The major scenery in Huanglong is concentrated in the 3.6-kilometer long Huanglong Valley that includes snowy peaks and the easternmost glaciers in China. Due to its layered calcium carbonated deposit patterns, the valley resembles a golden dragon winding its way through the virgin forest and stone mountains. Along the valley are scattering numerous colorful ponds of different sizes and shapes, which are strewn with gold colored limestone deposit that shimmer in the sunlight.
