Five Flower Lake – Jiuzhaigou

There are real wonders of nature, the extraordinary beauty of which still does not allow revealing the secrets of the universe. One such place is still considered to be the Five Flower Lake in the Jiuzhaigou Valley, hidden in the foothills of Tibet. This place keeps many secrets and legends, surprising with its constant water level in the flower lake, despite the fact that all the neighboring lakes are becoming shallow and dry.

Five Flower Lake is also surprising in that from time to time it changes its color: from yellow to green, from purple to silver, remaining predominantly sky blue. It does not freeze in winter and brings awe and fear to the local population with its wonder. One of the legends says that the gods wash in this 5 flower lake, and their blush paints the lake in incredible shades, giving extraordinary beauty and amazement.

Jiuzhaigou


Jiuzhaigou is translated as "Valley of Nine Fortified Villages." There are actually nine villages of them, but only seven of them are home to about 1000 people engaged in the production of handmade products for tourists and living on government subsidies. It is strictly forbidden to cultivate the land and keep livestock here since the place is the territory of Jiuzhaigou National Park. In 1992, the valley was included in the UNESCO list of protected sites.

Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park — The traditional periods of the seasons are not preserved here. Winter, lasting more than half a year from October to April, hides the valley in a snow cover and freezes the lakes, turning the cascades of waterfalls into real ice sculptures. Time seems to stop here, but not at Five Flowers Lake.

Five flower lake China, For many years they have been trying to explain the reasons for the non-freezing of the lake, and the only explanation is the hypothesis of the existence of thermal springs at the bottom of the lake, which is occasionally confirmed by the appearance of air bubbles on the surface of the lake. However, numerous dives and attempts to get to the bottom of the lake were doomed to failure, the reason for which is the obstacle from the trunks of the fallen and covering the bottom of the trees. At the same time, the pattern of these trees is clearly visible 40 meters deep due to the purity and transparency of the water itself. Scientists explain this by the high percentage of calcium carbonate in the water.

Jiuzhaigou China — In this place, the world is transformed and adds a new meaning every day, coming from the origins of Tibetan wisdom, leaving awe in front of its secrets.

Jiuzhaigou Park — Today this magical place of Jiuzhai National Park, created by nature itself and untouched by man, is visited by 7,000 to 12,000 people every day. The figure is quite impressive, especially compared to the time when Jiuzhaigou Park was only open to tourists. In the 70s-80s, 5,000 people visited it; in 1991, the number of tourists increased to 160,000 people; by the beginning of the 21st century, about 1,200,000 people came to the Jiuzhaigou National Park China per year.
