02 Walk the Huanglong Travertine Pools

For a little over two miles, mineral-laden water winds through this gorgeous valley in south China. The minerals built up unevenly over the eons, creating terraces and miniature waterfalls flowing over brilliantly-colored travertine. You might even catch a glimpse of the endangered giant panda or golden snub-nosed monkey. Visitors can cap off their valley walk with a visit to two ancient Chinese temples.
