TOUR ITINERARY

Tour code:
GWA-ZJJ-02
Day 1 arrive in Zhangjiajie

Upon arrival in Zhangjiajie (you can either fly in or take the train), you will be met by your English-speaking guide, who will then take you to your hotel. Zhangjiajie is famous worldwide for its pristine national scenery and the government’s potent policy on tourist infrastructure construction in recent years has boosted the region’s tourist industry and made it one of the new-rising popular tourist destinations in China.

Zhangjiajie’s main tourist draw (what we will see tomorrow) is the Wulingyuan Scenic Area, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list for its lush vegetation, unique sandstone pillars, pristine waters and a wide variety of species of flora and fauna. It contains three major sights including the Zhangjiajie Forest Park, Suoxi Vale, and Tianzi Mountain, with a total coverage of 396 square kilometers.

Once you arrive at your hotel the rest of the evening can be spent at your own leisure.

Day 2 Zhangjiajie (B, L, D)


After breakfast we will get started with our sightseeing in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. Located in the northwest of Wulingyuan, it covers an area of 11880 acres with 97% forest coverage. Concentrating beauty and quiet as a whole, with peculiar stones and brooks, this park is the labyrinth of nature and an inspiration for traditional Chinese painting. The forest park has 98 wood plant families which include 517 species. Half of the gymnosperm species can be found in the forest park.

Once in the park we will first take the cable car up to Huangshzhai. From the top of the peak you will appreciate the daunting rock columns and enjoy spectacular views of the forest with rough landscape. After coming down from Huangshzhai we’ll next check out Huangzhi Fort. Huangshi Fort has the most of marvelous view of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, which includes such scenic spots as Treasure Box of Heavenly Books, Magic Sea-suppressing Needle, South Pillar of Heaven, Golden Tortoise Watching the Sea etc. It is the best platform to view the beautiful panorama of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. As the saying goes, he who does not reach Huangshi Fort would be regarded as having never been to Zhangjiajie.

You will then be taken back to your hotel for the night, where the rest of the evening can be spent at your own discretion.

Day 3:  Zhangjiajie-departure (B, L, D)

Following breakfast we’ll get started with the day’s activities with a visit to Tianzi Mountain, by way of cable car. Tianzi Mountain Nature Reserve is a mesa in the northwest of Wulingyuan. Up on the mesa, the field of vision is widely opened up and it is a perfect location to have a panoramic view of the nature reserve. Tianzi Mountain has four scenic wonders, namely Cloud Billows, Moon Brightness, Sun Glow and Winter Snow. The cloud billows are ever changing, morning and evening sun glows vast sky, moon shines in the still night, winter snow falls enchanting the scenery, like a lyric, like a landscape painting. Here in the Tianzi Mountain, scene majestic is in all its variety. There are five main scenic zones and over ten scenic spots in the Tianzi Mountain area.

After coming down from Tianzi Mountain we’ll pay a visit to the Yellow Dragon Caverns. Yellow Dragon Cavern is a typical Karst cave, an area of irregular limestone in which erosion has produced fissures, underground streams, and caverns. So far, the discovered cave is about 15 kilometers long and 140 meters high, covering an area of 48 hectares. The Cavern can be divided into two parts. One is the dry cave, and the other is the water cave. Even in the Yellow Dragon Cavern, there are caves inside caves, and one cave may lead to many others. Sometimes there are caves under the ground too. Stalactites, stalagmites, stone blossoms, stone curtains, stone branches, stone canals, stone pearls, and stone macrospores can be seen here and there in the cavern, which constitutes a fantastic yet natural scene.

When our full day excursion is complete, you will be taken to either the airport or train station, and you will travel on to your next destination.
