Five Flower Lake - The Most Beautiful Lake in China

Five Flower Lake (also called the Wuhua Hai) is one of 118 lakes in Jiuzhaigou Valley Nature Reserve, located in the north of Sichuan, China. It is the most beautiful lake in the valley and is regarded as one of the wonders of Jiuzhaigou. Five Flower Lake is considered as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world due to its breathtaking colors which are a result of its lake-bottom travertine and colorful algae.

The pristine water of Five Flower Lake is the pride of Jiuzhaigou. The lake lies at the end of the upper reach of Peacock River at an elevation of 2,472 meters (about 8,110 feet) above the sea level. The shallow lake of five meters (about 16 feet) in depth glistens different shades of turquoise and its floor is littered with fallen ancient tree trunks. The colors of the lake are formed by mineral deposits, aquatic plant life and unevenly distributed submerged plants. Five Flower Lake’s autumn reflections are a spectacular display of nature.
