Long Lake in Jiuzhaigou Valley

This is the largest lake in the park at an altitude of 3,101 meters above sea level. It is 4,349 meters in length, with a maximum depth of 88.8 meters. A terminal glacial moraine dams the front end water level fluctuates between 8 and 9 meters annually with lowest levels in winter. The Long Lake is an important “reservoir” for Jiuzhaigou with water flowing through an underground karst water system (cracks, conduits and pores in the rick) to supply water to the other lakes.
