The valley that embraces the beautiful Wuhua Lake is called Juizhaigou by locals. It was said in ancient times to become home to nine unearthly sisters who descended upon the valley from the skies above. The sisters possessed rare beauty and soon fell in love with the most eligible of the local men. Each family grew over the centuries into nine great villages which still stand in the valley today.
