Written by Candice SongUpdated Sep. 19, 2023

Huanglong is famous for its colorful pools, white snowy peaks, canyons with various plants, and verdant forests. Huanglong neighbors with Jiuzhaigou, and its altitude ranges from 3,000 meters (9,843 feet) to 3,600 meters (11,811 feet); hence, visitors need to prepare for possible altitude sickness before arriving.
Having been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992, the accumulated travertine landscapes and thousands of fascinating pools greatly awe the numerous visitors.
