Pun of the day:
I would be down in the dumps (not litter-ally) if beautiful Jiu Zhai Gou ever becomes polluted.

Let’s get back to our Jiu Zhai Gou Cheesecapade.

The environment is very well-protected. Smoking is strictly prohibited in the entire reserved area, the toilets are very hygienic and they didn’t even chop any trees when they built the roads.

I actually felt very touched when i saw that. In other places, entire mountains have been moved so that roads could be constructed, whereas it’s the opposite in Jiu Zhai Gou: the nature there is given more consideration and priority than anything unnatural.

I still remember that there was this particular pathway at Fairy Pond which the sedan chair couldn’t pass through, because it was blocked by a tree trunk. They could have chopped it off easily for convenience’s sake. But they didn’t.

I was completely taken over by my environment-lover alter-cheesego. If i’d seen someone littering over there, i’d really have walked up to him/her/shim/it to give him/her/shim/it a tight slap. Speaking of which, i really hope that people would wake up and do something before the haze starts every year. Please, there’s always enough time to prevent it from happening, since it’s nothing new anyway. Why wait until it happens, then only start to take note and complain about it?

Sigh. I wish i’m in Jiu Zhai Gou now enjoying the pure, fresh air. 🙁

There were people carrying tribal Tibetan costumes everywhere.

For the tourists to wear and pose for photos.

They would just put it on you without saying anything.

He was very helpful and nice so we gave him a tip lor.

More awesome scenery.

There are many other lakes/ponds in Jiu Zhai Gou, such as the Mirror Lake, Panda Lake, Tiger Lake, Arrow Bamboo Lake…

I can’t remember which is which because they are more or less the same, but they are very beautiful in their own ways.

Have you ever seen trees that grow underwater? ^_^

The Multi-Color Pond is one of the best scenes in Jiu Zhai Gou.


I can’t even begin to describe its beauty.

I feel like blogging about Jiu Zhai Gou forever because it’s just so beautiful. Don’t worry, there’s still more to come!

Below is one of my fav pictures. Doesn’t it look like some place which only exists in fairy tales?


Stay cheesed!
