Jiuzhaigou 九寨沟

Published November 12th, 2012

A rushed weekend trip to the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve north of Chengdu, departed on a Friday morning and arrived roughly 8 hours later at the Jiuzhaigou Intercontinental Hotel. The scenery just outside the hotel is great with views of the snowy peaks and lakes within minutes. The Jiuzhaigou walk really deserves at least 2-3 days if you are keen on getting some good shots. It would take two days just to cover the grounds on foot with occasional trip on the shuttle between further stations. We missed the prime time for shooting autumn leaves as the weather cooled earlier than expected, there were only a few spots of yellow left on the hills. I highly recommend this area for anytime of the year especially during autumn.

New life

The area is so full of life, even the moss on a rock can sprout a tree.

Spotlight

Shot at Jiuzhaigou, west China. Due to the region being quite mountainous, it was quite difficult to get good natural light. This was a lucky shot with a glimpse of the setting sun landing on a small patch.
