Huanglong Scenic Area is located in northern Sichuan's Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, neighboring the Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area. It was named after the ancient Huanglong Temple was founded within the area.

There are two parts in the Huanglong Scenic Area in Songpan County, Sichuan Province-Huanglong and Maonigou.

The special character of the area, which extends over 700 square kilometers results from formations of talpatate, gives a special color to ponds and beaches. With a background of high mountains, snow covered peaks, valleys, waterfalls, lakes and forests, these talpatate scenes are quite spectacular.

The scenic area provides a variety of unique and wild scenery such as the Huanglong (Yellow Dragon) Ravine, at the foot of the Xuebao Peak in the Minshan Mountain; it is 3.6 kilometers long and 30-170 meters wide. The section from the Fuyuan Bridge at the entrance to the Yuyu Pond is 3,160-3,574 meters above sea level and its surface is a thick layer of light yellow talpatate. In the sunshine, the ravine looks like a golden dragon winding its way through the forest.

In the ravine there are a variety of talpatate scenes, talpatate ponds, beaches, waterfalls, caves and dykes but the colorful talpatate ponds are the most attractive; they come in different shapes, sizes and colors and there are 3,400 of them in eight groups.

Huanglong Scenic Area is an important scenic spot and was listed as a world heritage site in 1992.
