Photographer's Note

We were really lucky to have a wonderful clear day in Huanglong, at the altitude of of over 3000 meter, it is often cloudy here. In the morning on our way there it was cloudy and seem as if it would rain, but by the time we were here, it cleared up exposing the beautiful view of the mountain and peaks other than the wonderful travertine pools and fall colors.

Huanglong has been acknowledged for its karst features such as travertine pools and limestone shoals. Calcite deposition has lead to the pools being rich in algae and minerals, which results in orange, yellow, blue and green waters. The site is located in the North-West of China’s Sichuan Province about 2 hours from Juizaiguo valley.
