Really beautiful site and really worth the long bus journey to get here. Only 3 great location to see inside the resort and highly recommend to take a slow walk on the way back. Alone the river down stream you get to see many beautiful spots.

Mugecuo is one of the largest mountain lakes of northeast Sichuan. Gold Coast, Sevencolor sea, it is 3200 meters above sea level, Gallery road and red rock are worth to visit.

Tourist were not many as compared to other scenery resort. Lucky to view the full appearance of the Lotus mountains from the seven color lake. Ate the tasty soft boil egg by the spring water. Yellowish pine trees shows the color of autumn. Wonderful memory!

its a high altitude lake alright, but its been developed as a holiday camp not a nature preserve. Hence oversized visitor centre, shuttle buses, restaurants and speedboats polluting the lake visually, aurally and dieselly. Note the considerable entrance fee does not go into litter clearing (all the bins are overflowing, some into the lake) or repairing the badly made footpath.... More

If you are in Kanding city in Sichuan, you must visit Mugecuo Scenic Resort once, and probably twice (e.g. we were here 2 days, starting in Kanding every morning and returning back for a lunch and dinner). If you do not know chinese, it can be difficult to find a cheap way to get there, but you can easily find... More
