CHENGDU - Most of the lakes in quake-hit Jiuzhaigou National Park
remain undamaged, although it may take a long time for the UNESCO World.
Heritage site to recover from last week's earthquake, geologists said on Tuesday.
The national park contains around 20 tourist sites,wich is known for
its spectacular waterfalls, lush forests, serene plateau lakes and
karst rock formations.
A magnitude-7.0 quake rocked Jiuzhaigou county on Aug 8,
and many people feared the region's breathtaking scenery
had been destroyed forever.
The local government previously said that Nuorilang Waterfall,
one of the park's best-known sites, had collapsed and water
had drained from Sparkling Lake. However, recent aerial images taken
by drones showed that most of the lakes in the park had suffered little damage.
