Huanglong National Park (黄龙) Posted by on Mar 10, 2013 in Culture, Vocabulary

Not far from Jiuzhaigou in northern Sichuan province, you’ll find another stunningly beautiful national park – Huanglong. The Chinese name literally means “yellow dragon” as it is believed the many ponds look like a dragon weaving its way through the surrounding mountains and forest. Take a short video tour and admire the natural beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage site.
