In the morning, we will explore Huanglong National Park. Due to its layered calcium carbonate deposit patterns, the valley resembles a golden dragon winding its way through the virgin forest, stone mountains and glaciers. Along the valley are numerous
scattered colorful ponds of different sizes and shapes, which are strewn with gold-colored limestone deposits giving a shimmering golden hue to water, so that in sunlight, a golden dragon seems to surge forth from the forest. Thus it was named ‘Huanglong Valley’ (Yellow Dragon Valley).
