I would like to build my house here.

Jiuzhaigou,
the scenery here is truly breath-taking,
and the air is sooooo fresh.

Yes, I like Yunnan, good place for retirement.
Just look at pic below, isn't it beautiful?
It looks a bit like Swiss alps, doesn't it?
It would be nice to live here.



It looks a bit unreal, in particular if you compare both shores of the same lake. Btw, this view of Yulong Xueshan is unknown to me.

Jiuzhaigou is a protected area and neither along 'Long Lake' (image) nor in any other place land is sold for building residences. The only people who are permitted to stay there are the native T.   b's  who live there since generations. Btw, this lake is at an altitude of >3,000m. Not really a place for retirees.

You mean my pic is a photo-shopped one??
Grrrrrrrrrr..

I don't post unreal pic !!
It's all real ! I see nothing unusual about the shore line,
just some browned out water plants not fully recovered from winter cold.
Bear in mind it's still early spring, with all those beautiful wild flowers blooming.
But some plants by the shore line of the lake still slumbering from winter cold.
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.

Yeah, I know that,
but perhaps when there's approval of retirement residences in China,
then there might be possible construction of residences close by to these scenic places.
If I'm not wrong, Jiuzhaigou is quite a large area,
and with varying elevations, some rest in high lofty places, some less so,
and confortable for living.
