Filming in Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve, China

Written on August 28, 2012

Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve

Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve is located on the edge of the Tibetan Himalayan Plateau in Northern Sichuan Province, China.

It is home to nine Tibetan villages, over 220 bird species as well as a number of endangered plant and animal species, including the giant panda, Sichuan golden monkey, hog badgers, musk deer, lynx, civets, rhesus macaques, civets, Sichuan takin and numerous orchids and rhododendrons. Location wise Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve is best known for its fabled blue and green lakes, spectacular waterfalls and narrow conic karst land forms. The unique Bamboo Falls are only 7 metres (30ft) high but span nearly 152 metres (500ft).

The peak season runs from April to November with long sunny summer days through to leafy fall colours in the autumn. Peak season is heavily visited so small crews and limited equipment are recommended. The rest of the year offers picturesque snow covered looks.

Crew and equipment are best brought in from Shanghai (2hrs flight to Jiuzhaigou Huanglong Airport plus 1hr drive to Jiuzhai Valley).
