Huanglong, which means 'Yellow Dragon', is renowned for its cascade of colourful pools and natural ponds that tumble down a beautiful valley which are said to shimmer like the scales of a 'yellow dragon'. The astounding variety of greens, blues and yellows that colour the pools are caused by natural calcite deposits in the water. Not only famous for its colourful calcium pools, Huanglong is home to spectacular landscapes that can rival any of China's scenic areas and national parks. Surrounded by towering peaks and dotted with hot springs and waterfalls, wildlife flourishes too – the Golden Snub-Nosed Monkeys and even the Giant Panda, both endangered species, call it home.

Huanglong was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. Within the park, there is a boardwalk which allows visitors to explore Huanglong at a comfortable pace. The boardwalk hugs the pools giving you a close up view of these natural wonders. There is also the option of chairlift up to the top of the Huanglong scenic area and whilst travelling, you have a bird's eye view of an array of shimmering colours from the pools below.
