Dago and Semo & the Valley of Heaven.
In the Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, at the southern end of the Minshan mountain range, lies the valley of Jiuzhaigou. Jiuzhaigou is a world of pure magic, until 1975 this was an inaccessible area. The land features breathtaking views by its fabled blue & green lakes, spectacular waterfalls, snow-covered mountains, verdant forests, narrow conic karst land forms, unique wildlife & the folk customs of the Tibetan & Qiang people.
A beautiful local legend has it that a very long time ago, there lived a beautiful & kind-hearted goddess in the mountain east of the Jiuzhaigou Valley & an industrious & chivalrous god in the mountain west of the Jiuzhai Valley. As time went by, Dago fall in love with Semo. One day Dago presented a big & shiny divine mirror that was made from wind & cloud to the goddess Semo as a token of love. The goddess reached out to take it, but she was too exited & nervous to hold fast the heavy mirror. Hence, the mirror slipped from her trembling fingers & dropped to the valleys, breaking into 114 pieces. The 114 mirror pieces turned out to be 114 winkling & glittering crystal lakes of different sizes, covering the land of Jiuzhaigou Valley.
