The most impressive thing was the walk down into the canyon -- 1600 stairs down, a slide and a zip line at the bottom. Nice nature walk though. Barely worth your time.

Loved this park. Take the huge staircase on the way to the bottom of the canyon. You also have an opportunity to the take a stone "slide" and a short zip line along the way. The slide may not be an option, and is "meh." Just ok. We passed on the zip line, although short it did look like people... More

We went to the Big Grand Canyon of Zhang Jia Jie on 12 September 2014 by tour group. Our coach drove us to the top of the mountains. We had to walk down sets of stairs in the crevice between two big mountains. There was no way that we could escape but kept walking down the steps. Some were fine... More

Initially, we descend on a few sets of stairs. Then we descend some more, and some more.. The land below is nowhere in sight. We were in this crevice between two mountain rocks and the only way to go is down. By the time we figure out we are still a long way to the bottom, we were too far... More

We went- me and Yvonne to this area to a range of high ridge mountains. It was one of the most beautiful places we had been to so far. It spread out of a large area, there were cable cars, valleys, valley walks, rivers, a gorge, monkeys. there is also the highest lift in the world

We visited The Grand Canyon on our first day along with Huanglong cave later in the afternoon. I could imagine you may be disappointed with this place if you went to other areas of the park first. The scenery is different - it does not have the same wow factor but it is still interesting and has a different appeal.... More

I did not plan to go here however on recommendation of the congierge of the hotel we did so and it was surely the best decision ever. There are by far not as many tourist at the Canyon than in the national parks. The set up is wonderful, you firstly get to walk down to the valley by stairs and... More
