This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

Nuorilang means "grand" in Tibetan. Jiuzhaigou's Nuorilang Falls, cascading 80 feet (24 meters) down in the clear mountain light 7,700 feet (2,350 meters) above sea level, offers a suitably grand—and popular—backdrop for bridal photography.
