Visitors will not be able to access the whole site and they’ll have to join a tour group, with only 2,000 people allowed in per day
A Unesco World Heritage Site that was damaged by a strong earthquake in southwest China last year will reopen to tourists next week after it was closed for seven months.
Tourists will be able to visit parts of Jiuzhaigou, a popular national park in mountainous Sichuan province, from Thursday after months of reconstruction efforts, the government of the Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang autonomous prefecture said on its website.
The national park is famous for its otherworldly beauty, with waterfalls and iridescent lakes that shimmer against a backdrop of deciduous forests and snow-capped mountains.
While visitors will not be able to access the whole park, some of its popular sites will reopen including the Nuorilang Waterfall, Long Lake, Mirror Lake, Five-Colour Lake and Shuzheng Lakes, according to the statement on Thursday.
