We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Huanglong Scenic Area

Huanglong Valley or Huanglong Scenic Area is located in Songpan County in the northwest of Sichuan, 360km north-northwest of the capital Chengdu. Huanglong Valley is famous for its waterfalls, hot springs and colorful pools formed by calcite deposits. Huanglong Valley is also home to many endangered species including the Giant Panda and the Sichuan Golden Snub-nosed Monkey. Huanglong Valley was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.

Huanglong in Chinese means "Yellow Dragon", is nestled at the foot of the Jade Peak of Xuebaoding, the main peak of Minshan Mountain Rang. The valley is 7.5 km long (in depth) and 2.5 km wide with an average altitude of 3550 meters. A panoramic view of Huanglong Valley from the top will reveal the valley a yellow dragon wriggling in the green mountain and the valley. The valley has a dense distribution of thousands of travertine colour-ponds, travertine flow streams and stalatite caves, featuring the world's largest, intact and unique karst landscape.

There are three ways of visiting the Huanglong Valley:
1. Walk up 5km on the boardwalks up to the Five-colour Lake and walk 5km down the boardwalks to the entrance.
2. First take the 5-8 minute cable car up to the platform called "Wanlong Ping", from which you walk 2km on the boardwalks to Five-color Lake. Then walk 5km down the boardwalks to the entrance.
3. Walk up 5km on the boardwalks up to the Five-colour Lake, then walk 2km on the boardwalks to the cable car station at "Wanlong Ping", take 5-8 minute cable car down to the ground.

So the Five-color Lake is the utmost tip of the 7.2km long Huanglong Valley in the scenic area.

We choose the second way of first taking the cable car up, then walk 2km on the boardwalks to the Five-colour Lake.
