The Lake of Five Flowers, a mirror of water in one of the most beautiful places in the world

The Cinque Fiori Lake is a spectacular mirror of water in one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is a jewel of rare beauty set within the Jiuzhaigou Valley, the legendary "valley of the nine villages" in China. Located in the Sichuan Nature Reserve, an area of ??idyllic beauty which is famous for its landscape surrounded by enchanting forests, where beautiful waterfalls, lakes and streams flow. This magical place was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.



The Lake of the Five Flowers takes its name from the waters that almost seem to reflect a garden in bloom. It is an effect that happens due to the particular lighting of the place and the presence of minerals and native plants that grow on the seabed. The high concentration of calcium carbonate and the glacial origin of the lake make its waters absolutely transparent, making it easy to see the old tree trunks which lay at the bottom of these waters.



Wu hua Hai is its Chinese name. This enchanted lake is almost 10 meters deep, with turquoise and emerald green nuances, in the middle of an untouched dreamlike territory, where it is possible to spot many species of plants and animals in danger of extinction. Some of the animals which can be seen are the giant panda and the golden rhinopithecus. There are thousands of legends attributed to this destination as it is considered sacred by the native population. It is today one of the main attractions of the valley - a perfect destination for all nature lovers.
