Update: JULY 25, 2013  By: SplendidChinaTours.com

Autumn is widely regarded as the most beautiful of all four seasons. Although the southern part of China is still quite hot throughout September, the impending autumn has brought some highly anticipated cool air for the nation's northern half. It is the best season for outdoor activities. Let's start looking for the most beautiful autumn colors right here and now.

The following are our top five best places to see the fall scenery in China.

Sichuan and Chongqing

Jiuzhaigou Valley, Sichuan, China

Jiuzhaigou Valley is a nature reserve and national park located in the northern part of Sichuan Province. It is known for its crystal lakes, multi-leveled waterfalls, colorful forests, snow-capped peaks and Tibetan culture. Travelling through the valley in autumn, especially in early September, you will be amazed by the colorful scenery unfolding before you.

Even if you would only like to stay in town, it will make for a memorable experience. Have some tea, enjoy the local food, chat with the locals, walk through the ancient streets, or just hang around in the unique towns in Sichuan and Chongqing.

It is best to visit the places by the end of October and early November.

Kanas, Xinjiang

Kanas, Xinjiang

Kanas,in a valley in the Altai Mountains, is located near the very northern tip of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. "Kanas" is a Mongolian word meaning "lake in the canyon." The area is famous for its mysterious and wild landscape and especially its legendary lake.

When September comes, Kanas enters a golden season. The plants covered by the golden sunshine, the lake in the near distance, the snow-capped mountains in the backdrop, the small wooden houses and the strolling herds of cattle and sheep, create a fairytale view.

September is believed to be the best time to visit Kanas.

Nyingchi, Tibet

Nyingchi, Tibet

Nyingchi, which means "sun throne" in Tibetan, is situated in the southeast of Tibet. Located in the lower reaches of Yarlung Zangbo River, Nyingchi is blessed with a semi-humid climate and fascinating scenery. It is nicknamed the "Switzerland of Tibet."

Autumn is the most colorful season of Nyingchi, when the golden pine forests, green canyon and crystal snow-capped mountains form a striking sight. Due to the altitudinal zonality of Namjagbarwa Peak, various plant species are scattered across the mountain, forming multiple levels of color.

It is best to visit Nyingchi before October comes around.

Red Beach, Liaoning

Red Beach, Liaoning

The red leaves form a popular attraction during China's autumn, but have you ever seen the season's red waters? The sea blites living in the mud flat of Panjin, northeast Liaoning Province, start to grow every April or May. They're green at first, but then gradually turn red. By September, they will have become a carpet of vivid red, stretching out across the whole beach.

The mornings of sunny September days are the best time to enjoy the spectacular views of the Red Beach. You may stand on the bridge extending onto the sea or paddle a boat to enjoy this 6,000-hectare- wide "red carpet."

Eerguna, Inner Mongolia

Eerguna, Inner Mongolia

Eerguna is a wetland area straddling the China-Russian border in the northeast of Inner Mongolia. It is located on the west side of the north of the Greater Xing'an Mountains, which are famed for their stunningly colorful autumn scenery. The trees and plants in various colors, the pure blue sky and the clear waters, are extremely enchanting.

The afternoons give you the most amazing scenery in the Moerdaoga National Forest Park, when the whole forest is covered in golden sunrays. White Deer Island is the best place to go and see the red leaves. The rivers that run through the grasslands are also charming, like painted belts winding down the forest.

September make for the best time to visit Eerguna. The temperature in the forest region may drop below minus degree, so make sure to put on something warm.
