Today, we will visit 黄龙 Huanglong. Actually, I didn’t have any imaginary about 黄龙 Huanglong before, but because it’s included in the trip, so we just go there. And surely, I won’t regret it.
It is one of UNESCO Heritage Site, altitude between 1700m-5588m.
We have to walk around 2-3 hours to go the peak, actually you can ride cable car to go up but the cable car station is not the same as the car parking. So usually, travel agent didn’t suggest it.
The view from the entrance to the peak is surely beautiful.
But just as reminder, please go to trekking first until the peak, and enjoy the scene while you go down. Otherwise, you won’t make it to the peak.
We will see this building before continue trekking.
Then the road is going up, but the view in the front is very beautiful. I think, we walk at the old path of Huanglong.
There’s a Five Colors Lake 五彩池 wu cai chi in the peak. You will arrive in a temple as entrance to the lake.
Finally, we arrive at Five Colors Lake. It’s very beautiful.
After take some photos, we go down using the new path. The new path has the good road, which we can enjoy the scene while go down / up. And there’s a waterfall too.
Going down is faster than to go up. Fortunately, we have more than 4 hours in here. One day, surely I want to go back here, maybe in different season.
Ohh, don’t forget, maybe some of you will need additional oxygen tube because the air is very thin. And the location is very high.
