Seeing the pictures and hearing so much about the beauty of Dzukou Valley, I am deeply inspired by the untouched beauty and have always wanted to walk and see this beautiful place. I still haven’t been able to go to this place and someday I hope to see this place.

Sometime back in January of 2015, I had participated in NYC Midnight’s short story contest and was assigned a Ski-Fi genre, a genre which is definitely not my strength. However I wrote ‘A walk at Dzukou Valley’. In this story , I used the location of Dzukou Valley and wrote based on what I have seen in many of the pictures, and my deep desire to go to Dzukou. I got Honorable Mention of the story for the contest and one of the Judge mentioned “The exotic setting of the Dzukou Valley is a plus.”
