Jiuzhaigou - Treasure Mirror Cliff

Sichuan - Chengdu - Jiuzhaigou - Leshan

Treasure Mirror Cliff is a gigantic cliff rising 800 meter from ground level. Its surface is as smooth and slippery as a mirror. Capped with pines and China firs, the cliff top resembles a human head with cropped short hair and curly beard, which according to local mythology, was left over by Zhayiga, the Ancester of mountains to keep the evil spirit under control.
