Jiuzhaigou Nuorilang Falls

The Nuorilang Falls are situated, at an altitude of 2,365 m , at the junction of the Zechawa, Rize and Shuzheng valleys. Best viewed from the Shuzheng valley road the 250-m wide veil of water flows out of the thick shrubs and bushes of Rize Gully to drop 24 m into a small ravine below the road.
Rhinoceros Lake at 2,315 m and with a surface area of some 200,000 sq m is the largest lake in the Shuzheng valley, and also the deepest with an average depth of 12 m. The lake derives its name from a legend that tells of a monk from Tibet riding a rhinoceros. When the monk came to this lake he was so entranced with the local scenery that he accidentally rode his rhinoceros directly into the lake.
