The Sichuan sightseeing spots including Jiuzhaigou, Huanglong and Dujiangyan have been closed because of the 7.8 Richter scale earthquake.

The roads to the sightseeing spots have been blocked by the rocks which fell on from the hills on both sides of the roads. Besides the earthquake cut off the electricity, gas, water pipes and food transportation.

The earthquake hit Sichuan at 2:28 p.m., May 12th, 2008. The deadly earthquake that rocked southwestern China and felt all across the country and beyond, has killed more than 10,000 people by early Tuesday, and the death toll is expected to climb as rescue efforts are intensifying.

China Travel feels shocked about the killer earthquake. At present, no customers of China Travel injured or died.
