Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Zhangjiajie

4.7
Marvel at the towering rock formations of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, part of an extensive World Heritage Site and one of the nation's most iconic attractions. More than 3,000 quartz-and-sandstone pillars point skyward throughout the park, resembling a forest of rocks--more than 1,000 stand more than 198 m (650 ft) high. Explore the park's huge network of trails through the dense temperate forest, home to numerous wild macaques. You'll find the park also boasts lakes, caves, and a cable car that can take you up to the area's highest point. Don't miss the Southern Sky Column, one of the park's tallest and most popular pillars, which reaches a height of 1,080 m (3,540 ft).

  • Amazing ! Retrospectively probably my favourite place after 2 months travelling in China. Allow yourself plenty of time to see all the places, we spent 3 days, were absolutely tired at the end, but we enjoyed every bit of it (Ok maybe that would have been true if we had been alone but well, domestic tourists...). Try to be among the first to enter so that you can have some quiet time there!
  • 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.
