This must be the most unexciting trail in the park. Definitely worth a skip if you are pressed for time or a serious hiker wanting more challenges up the peak instead. It's basically like a forest walk with some glimpses of the peaks and a stream...nothing too exciting or too scenic but this felt like the most packed area of... More

We took a 3 hour walk along the stream. It was nice with the small rapids, birds and wildlife you saw. Trees were pretty and it was a very nice walk.

after the crowds on the mountains, this is a very quite walk along the river away from the folks. Many spots to take photos and to cool down the feet in the water

The park views of the mountain are fantastic and this hike gives you the feel of things from the valley floor. Well worth the hike and the views up the mountain were fantastic.

We accessed this trail from the 'Avatar mtn' area. We took the Bailong Elevator at 6.45am when there was only one other person and then spent a very quiet and cool time up there before heading down to the stream. Because we were so early, the one hour walk down to the Golden Whip trail was cool and quiet plus... More

This is a walk though the valley below the Tianzi Mountains. You can do the entire walk which is 7.5kms long, which we did not, so maybe this review is not accurate. The streams and the forest are lovely from the 2kms that we walked. And we did see some wild monkeys. A nice experience.

This constitutes a relaxing walk, 8 kilometers one way, only disturbance being the loudspeakers of tourist guides (which should be banned). Be prepared to turn back according to the available time. Note the diverse vegitation, the surrounding peaks and valleys. This attraction should be combined with Huangshi village - thin tall peaks shooting at the sky, Tianmen Mountain using cable... More

it was very good to end up the day doing the trail beside the little river. the trail is very easy going and good for kids as the river is beside the trail all the time and more often than you imagine you can see monkeys around. it took us around two hours to complete the walk and after that...

We did this walk with four children ranging from 6 -11. It was very enjoyable. There were monkeys along the way so be careful with your food. Very beautiful area.
