For those of us interested in photographing beautiful, scenery, this is the place to visit. Jiuzhaigou is a World Heritage Site, and the lakes are amazing, the mountains spectacular. The altitude is about 2,500m above sea level, so it is not really difficult to breathe up here. We need to walk at a steady pace, and slow down if we feel out of breath. There are public coaches we can take that ply up and down the mountain roads, and they stop at the different scenic areas for the visitors to walk along the pathways and enjoy the sights close-up.
It is advisable to take a flight up to Jiuzhaigou rather than the coach. The flight is only 40 minutes or so, whilst the bus ride up the mountain is said to be 'scary' and you have to endure 8 hours of this.
Whatever your mode of transport, a visit to Jiuzhaigou, especially in Autumn, is a photographer's dream come true.
