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.

Victor, the hostel advisor, advised us that out of season the four day access cards for Zhangjiajie National Park had dropped in price to 139RMB. With that bonus in mind, a walk from the hostel to the Wulingyuan gate of the Zhangjiajie National Park briskly flew by. On buying your tickets, swiping your card and the park staff taking a...

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
