This is the best way to experience the natural beauty of Zhangjiajie: hiking along the many paths through the stunning sandstone landscape. It can be quite daunting at times. Some highlights of hiking include the following natural landmarks:
Huang Shi Zhai
The highest area in the park at 3,450 feet, which can be climbed up a 3,878 step stairway.
A garden sits on an outcropping surrounded by slender peaks.
Xianren Qiao (Bridge of the Immortals)
This is a spectacular, narrow rock bridge over a deep chasm, with no railings. There are several amazing lookout points, including “Great Viewing Platform,” “Emperor’s Throne” and “Cock-Pecking.”
First Bridge of the World
This is a natural rock bridge similar to Xianren Qiao. The bridge itself is really just a minor part of the incredible panoramic views to be seen along this short and easy trail.
These thin, spiky columns hundreds of feet high are featured on stamps and resemble calligraphy letters.
Thrill to the excitement of the major rapids of theMengdongheRiver, a beautiful river that is situated approximately 50 miles southeast ofZhangjiajie City,HunanProvince. The exciting rapids are interspersed with calm stretches of river, providing adventurers with a chance to enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
