Huanglong National Park, Sichuan Province, China
One of the major National Parks in the Sichuan Provice of China is the Huanglong National Park. It is primarily noted for its very colorful pools of water slowing descending through a mountain pass. They come in many colors, whereas this aqua blue is most prodominent. The trail is long and takes almost 6-7 hours to do the whole thing....very tired when done!

Wonderful, reminds me of the geothermal pools in New Zealand. Is this hot water too? What causes the colours?

Well...these colors are caused by calcified mineral deposites over the myriad of years.  The water is actually cold, which I was surprised at seeing when getting there.   There is a very long string of these pools throughout the valley inbetween some high mountains, some blue, green gold and other colors.  Very majestic and nothing else that I have seen anywhere..including Yellowstone.   The Chinese Parks system actually has done a great job in my opinion of building the walkways to keep everyone off and yet see the beauty mostly undisturbed.   But...was it crowded.  Hard to get positions to shoot sometimes...another story.   Thanks for the comments!
