"In addition, lots of scenic spots in areas far away from the epicenter were not affected," he said.

Local tourism authorities have yet to work out a reconstruction plan for the industry as disaster relief in quake-hit areas remains the top priority, according to director Zhang.

"In post-quake reconstruction, we will first rebuild the tourist sites on the World Heritage List," he said. "It may take at least two years to renovate the damaged ancient relics ," he added.

Despite the adversities, travel service manager Huang looked forward to the future optimistically.

"I think the tourism market would begin recovering in June, and in July and August a number of tourists would come to Sichuan during schools holidays," he said.

"In September and October, a gold season for sightseeing in Jiuzhaigou, more tourists will fly there," he added.
