In the aftermath of the quake, the Nuorilang Waterfall collapsed.

Standing 24.5 meters tall, it is China's widest waterfall at 270 meters width and has been chosen by netizens as one of the country's most spectacular natural sights.

After two years of reconstruction, 85 percent of the scenic areas of Jiuzhaigou was reopened in 2019, with entrance ticket costing 169 yuan ($26), down from its normal price of 220 yuan, said Yang Fuying, head of the marketing division of the Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area Administration.
