Huanglong Park protects a high valley in the foothills of the Himalayas. Particularly noteworthy element of the park is an extraordinary set of pools formed by limestone deposits and filled with water of exceptional clarity, predominantly turquoise.

The park is located between 1700 m and 5568 m. The valley itself is easily accessible, the walk can be a bit strenuous due to the altitude. It is home to several endangered species including the two species of pandas.

Hi Philippe,
another beautiful place and very nice photo.
Thanks for sharing,
Maciek

Philippe,

Really a spectacular place! You captured it beautifully. Colors look very natural. Is the source of the water geothermal and hot? It appears like many pools in Yellow Stone National Park, U.S.A. Well done and TFS this special place on the earth.

Hi Philippe, what a lovely scene. I have heard many good things about the Huanglong National Park. I hope I can go there one day. Is it worth going all that way?
The color of the water in the different pools is amazing. So interesting.
TFS. : )
