The Y shaped Jiuzhaigou, or Jiuzhai Valley, is located in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in eastern Sichuan. It is more than 40 kilometers long and gets its name from the nine stockade villages of Tibetan origin.

Nerohem Yam is a traveler from Israel. He has traveled to many parts of China but is still impressed by what he sees in Jiuzhai Valley.

"This is the most beautiful place in China. I've never seen such streams and mountains before. Every thing here is distinctive."

The rivers and lakes of Jiuzhai Valley contribute a large part to its natural beauty. Scattered in the valley strip are more than a hundred colorful lakes, which are called Haizi, or the sea, by local Tibetans.

Water in the lakes is clear and transparent, presenting pebbles, waterweeds and dead twigs to the naked eye. Every lake is a mixture of vivacious green and deep blue, with touches of loud yellow.
