Five-Color Pool

The Five Colored Pond (Wu Cai Chi) is one of Jiuzhai Valley’s smallest but most impressive lakes. Its colors are a result of travertine sedimentation on the uneven lake bed, as well as various algae. However, legend has it that the pond was where Goddess Semo washed and combed her hair and God Dage came everyday to bring her water. The pond’s colors are said to come from Semo's rouge coming off her pretty face and coloring the water.
