Amazing! Impossible to describe. Nature is absolutely fabulous, moving and beautiful. Unfortunately Chinese modern architecture and ugly plastic "food shop" are a cancer for this place. I hope they will stop destroying this unique place on our Earth. Can't understand why it's not one of Wonders of the World.
Zhangjaijie national Park.. No question this is the main highlight but be aware they charge separately for everything... Admission, cable car, museum, elevator, tram.. By the time you get done it will add up. When we went it was unfortunately bad cold weather so visibility was very limited but we could still appreciate the grandeur of the park. One of the highlights for us was watching the monkeys socialize and grab food, this is by the patio before heading for the elevator going down to the mountain base.
Established in 1982, Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is the first national forest park in China and is part of the Wulingyuan Scenic Areas. With its clear streams, weird-looking peaks, wildlife and abundant sub-tropical vegetation, the park is a year-round magnet for visitors. Key attractions include the Golden Whip Stream where visitors can see fish swimming in the crystal-clear water.
Great and must-see place for anyone touring the country. The countless hours on planes and trains are worth it for this place. There are a great number of amenities open year-round and I even got to meet Ronald McDonald at the the American Embassy here, if you catch what I mean.
Very beautiful place to visit. The winter will be on the other end, but it is recommended to prepare a thick clothes.
