Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Zhangjiajie Reviews
It's really a natures' wonder! See it for youself. A lot of steps, but not steep and walkable. If you afford, take the time to soak in the ions!
Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking forest park, but DO NOT take a tour guide, it is a waste of money and time, it is way more fun when you explore the area by yourself!
Absolutely majestic sandstone and limestone formations. Most of the paths are made of stone blocks and have a lot of stairs. Cableways and the elevator are horrendously overpriced compared to the entrance fee (low season 139 yuan for 4 days).
I joined a packaged tour and visited the Park in October, 2014. Only when i was there did I realize that sets of the 2009 Hollywood fantasy film "Avatar" were shot there. Incidentally, I also got the inspiration to write a Hollywood-style screenplay with Chinese characteristics - a heart-warming story about the left-behind children living n the mountains!
An amazing and magical scenaric place. Highly recommended! 😍. Stayed 4 nights in a wonderful family run inn (Wulingyuan Mini Inn), 10 minutes walk to Yangjiajie entrance. With the guidance and tips from the Host, we managed to cover lots of beautiful scenenic walks through local villages and hike the slippery rocky stairs/steps to finally reached the top of the mountains.. and viewing the gorgeous mountains, the pain and tiredness were long forgotten.... 😂😊...worth the climb!! 😍
