Sitting at the west of Huanglong Valley entrance of the national park is the Fuyuan Bridge built on the head-stream of the Fujiang River. Here is a very small basin land surrounded by the evergreen mountains and the meadows where the Fujiang River winds its way eastwards. In a distance are the overlapping peaks and the floating clouds, making up such a grand sight. The wood bridge is in a plain but a vigorous style that is the entrance to visit Huanglong Valley. In the scenic sight are the vast stretches of virgin forests. Visitors can also climb up slab or the wood steps along the plank roads, breathing fresh air from woods and listening to the birds as the sing.
The dragon Ridge waterfalls.
the dragon waterfalls is found in a travertine slope which seems to be fish scales in a form of a peculiar jade band, on which a very thin layer of shiny water freely runs over and it resembles a golden back ridge of a dragon. The waterfalls have golden color that dominates the scenery, they are decorated with white, silver, and dark green patches colors. On the travertine, it grows water willows and the hilly flowers that look like colored boats in the river, featuring a dynamic and static harmony of the Nature.
Dustpan Lake and horse shoe lake
The lake comprises of two colored ponds called the lakes by the local people of Huanglong. The larger one resembles a dustpan design and the smaller a horseshoe design. Both lie in tranquility of the deep woods. No one has ever come up with an adequate interpretation for why they are called lakes, which adds another mystic color to Huanglong.(image by : Darren Williams)
Revolving flower pond
A number of fountains spring up from the limpid bottom and then rippling the water surface into fine geometric patterns. The strange thing is that, if visitors throw in flowers or leaves, the ripples will revolve in different directions and at different tempos.
