Golden whip brook is a 7.5 km nature hiking trail that is avoided by major tour groups because of the hours needed to complete the trail. If you love to be away form the usual tourist crowd and enjoy a beautiful nature walk, this is a good trail for you. It will probably take you 2-3 hours for a slow... More

Along walk along the path estimated around two hours for a clam and relax condition. Great nature, water fall, bridges, slow flow of stream, small animal, birds. Worth while to visit.

Took my parents here for a walk after a long day on top of the mountains. Even though it's close to mid November, the trail is still very lush. If you enter from the original Zhangjiajie National Forrest Gate, you pretty much walk down the stream, so it's a really easy walk, even if you bring young children or the... More

We did this walk later in the afternoon just before dusk. It was a beautiful time of day for photos. The weather was wonderful and there were no crowds at all. We found it to be an enjoyable and easy walk 2 hour walk.

If you have visited the national park and viewed the "Avatar rocks" then the walk down Golden Whip Brook is a nice addition. You may have spent the day looking down at the dramatic rock spires, but the Golden Whip Brook walk is along the bases of these spires in a lush forest setting with a nice clear babbling brook....

Inside the Forest Park territory the Golden Whip Stream Trail is a plain hike path, which closely follows the shallow Golden Whip Brook (JinBianXi) over a length of 5-7 km. It connects the Zhangjiajie entrance gate with the popular Bus Stop at the Lower Bailong Elevator Station. The two touristic areas are not conveniently linked by a Park Bus line;... More

The entire stream takes at least 2 hours to walk and the landscape is quite similar along the stream. I would recommend visitors to walk 30 mins or so and then turn back. There is no exit point along the stream.

After 1/2 to 1 hr. walk in from park entrance, disappointed as nothing much but a small stream. Or maybe 'low water'.

A wonderful walk along the brook lets you enjoy the brook, the forest, the mountains, and the monkeys. It's a different perspective for Zhangjiajie. Highly recommended.

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
