The Zhangjiajie Tour starts with an morning departure for the main entrance of Zhangjiajie National Park, the first national forest park in China, listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. It is known for its odd-shaped peaks and rocks, exquisite forests, tranquil water, beautiful canyons, limestone caves and breathtaking views.

Use the Bailong Panoramic Elevator - a glass elevator built into the side of the mountain to reach the top of Yuanjiajie Mountain. On the summit, take a peaceful walk to discover the Pillar of the Southern Sky. You will see the famous "Hallelujah Mountain", which is the floating mountain showed in the Hollywood movie "Avatar". Later, take a bus and go on sightseeing to Tianzi Mountain. Ascend the mountain by cable-car and at the top, enjoy views of the Yubifeng and Western Sea, two of the most stunning mountain formations, and followed by a visit to the Tianzi mountain.

After that, take the cable car down the mountain and then a bus transfer to the Ten-Mile Gallery. Continue the day with a stroll along the Golden Whip Stream, giving another angle to enjoy the amazing karst peaks. The karst peaks from this angle appear to shoot up into the sky like giant natural skyscrapers. Adored by the Chinese, the peaks have been given a number of different poetic names, including the tallest which stands at 400 meters and is known as the Magical Eagle Protecting the Whip.

With clear water, pure air, and very well maintained grounds, the visit is a real treat for those who have been stuck in China’s megacities. The wildlife in the park is extremely varied; some may even be lucky enough to spot a panther, bear, or a pangolin! There’s also a good chance of bumping into groups of monkeys; despite what other tourists may be doing, it is advised to leave the animals well alone!

OPTIONAL: If the Golden Whip Stream is not a top preference, there is the Baofeng Lake can be an alternative choice of visit.

Upon arrival at the top of the canyon, spend about 3 hours’ moving downhill to visit the canyon.

NOTE: Comfortable shoes are always recommended.

The transparent Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge is the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge. Looking from a distance, it looks like a piece of white silk floating between the clouds and fog, hence it is also called Yuntiandu, meaning “a way of clouds to the sky”. You will a panoramic view of the stunning Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, if you dare to walk on it!

Next will be a visit to the Yellow Stone Village which is about 1048 meters above the ground and 1100 meters above sea level averagely.

Breakfast
Wake up early in the morning for a trip to Tianmen Mountain, an another major attraction in the region. Unlike the other mountains, the mountain is not really a peak, but rather a whole collection of karst formations that altogether are much more imposing. To journey up to the top, use the cable car which lasts around 20 minutes and the views from the cable-car are spectacular.

Upon arrival, take a stroll through Ghost Valley, a 1600m (5249 feet) walkway with an average elevation of 1,400m (4,593 feet). The walkway has a section of around 60 meters that has been turned into a glass bottomed ground.

An endless number of red ribbons will adorn branches of nearby trees, on which visitors write famous proverbs and good luck declarations. People write their wishes on the ribbon, then hang it from the tree, hoping the wishes will become true. Next will be a visit to the Tianmen Cave and Tianmen Mountain Temple, which has been a center for Buddhists in western Hunan since the Ming Dynasty.

After the visit, you will be transferred back to Zhangjiajie Airport to catch you onward flight. Your tour ends today. If you need any assistance in regard to other China Tours, please feel free to contact us to get further suggestion for a China Tour Package.
