This is a must come for a traveler to Zhangjiajie. It is a natural park with the blue sky, brook and mountains ridges. If you are lucky, you may get clouds or misty dews passing pass, very photographic. Seems to be in Aviator.....

This is an easy walk from the Zhangjiajie National Park Entrance all the way to the "10 mile gallery" if you want to do that. There are various features you can look up at instead of across or down. The valley floor is a paved road all the way, and you can walk all the way to the Wulingyuan entrance... More

We went in from the Wulingyuan gate, took the shuttle to the Geo Museum where the trail head was. It is 7.5 KM long but mostly on well paved rock trails. The scenery changes with every turn of the creek. Some rocks rises over a thousand feet. Quite spectacular. I can see why Avatar used this park for their back... More

It's a very easy walk, over stone and concrete paths, it will be busy at both ends and then get quieter in the middle. There are some steps, but not many at all. It's peaceful walking beside the stream and even the usually noisy Chinese Tour groups were absent when we went. You can combine this with hiking up to... More

Nothing special to see. Nice for viewing the karsts from below. It wasn't a highlight and we cross it pretty fast, from there we took the 3000 steps to the Halleluja mountains and that was the best part from the 2 days, so you have to cross it to get to the best part.

We are older and found no problem walking the trail. Stopped numerous times for photos of the towering peaks surrounding the trail. Loved the walk, not too crowded for China. There are a few steps, but they are in short bursts, nothing too strenuous. You can buy food and drink along the trailYou can also do the trail being carried... More

My wife especially liked the 6km hike along the Goldn Whip Brook. Once you are more than a 20 minute walk from the bus stops at both ends crowds are thin and scenery is excellent. The brook is crystal clear and flora and fauna abound. The hike isn't terribly hard as the trail is paved for the most part and... More

February is considered low season, but I guess not during Chinese New Year. Landscapes are beutiful, but too crowded... Very difficult to walk in that sea of people.

When I saw 'Stroll along Golden Whip Stream" in our itinerary, I was not majorly excited, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our recent visit to China. It was a comfortable walk along a n easy path. The air was crisp and the vegetation lush, even during the winter month of December. Hundreds of monkeys... More

Nice perspective from the bottom of the valley instead of the top, as at Yuanjiajie or Huangshizhai. The views up toward the pinnacles are fantastic. The walk is even and quite easy, but start at Huangshizhai so it is downhill. Plenty of places to eat along the way, and be careful of monkeys.
