Jiuzhaigou County (simplified Chinese: 九寨沟县; traditional Chinese: 九寨溝縣; pinyin: Jiǔzhàigōu Xiàn) is a county of Sichuan Province, China. It is under the administration of the Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture. Formerly called Nanping County (南坪县), it was renamed in 1998 to reflect the fact that the Jiuzhaigou Valley is located within its administration.

The county consists of nine villages in a valley in Sichuan Province. The main ethnic group in the county is Han (汉族), while the second being Tibetan (藏族). The county seat has an altitude of about 1400 m.[1]
