China is one of my favorite destinations as she has such a variety of people (surprise!!), cultures and landscapes that I kept going back there again and again, often to the same places. One of the provinces that have a lot to offer any travellers is Sichuan. It is one of the bigger province of China, and is a microcosm of China in its diversity of people and landscape. Apart from some of the most well-known destinations in China such as Jiuzhaighou, EmeiShan, Leshan and so on, there are also many hidden gems, yet to be discovered by the mainstream tourists. One example is the area around the Jiulong County. This county is a little remote and is inhabited mainly by Tibetan farmers. It has several beautiful alpine lakes that can only be accessed by trekking- this may have changed by now as when I was there few years ago, roads are already being cut. Wuxuhai is one of these lakes.
