We visited Wulingyuan Scenic Area in December for two days and had a great time. The scenery is breathtaking. We didn't have much for crowds and we were still able to find a quiet area to hike where no one was around. Very much worth the visit. It wouldn't be nearly as great during high season and large crowds due... More

I'll start by saying. Zhangjiajie airport taxi to Wulingyuan should be in the area of 170-200 yen per car. Taxi drivers will attempt to milk more out of you(as much as 500yen). For late arrivals, there are no buses that will take you to Wulingyuan so you'll need to take a taxi... Don't expect any help from the people who... More

Our flight was late and we arrived in Zhangjiajie about 9:00 pm. Our China Highlights guide, Victor, met us at the airport and transported us to our hotel. We spent two days exploring the Wulingyuan Scenic Area with its incredible peaks and Bamboo forests. Victor even arranged for us to see a cultural history, music and acrobatics show which was...

We loved this place. It was a bit daunting, being the only white people we saw all day and we do not speak the language. But we followed other people, read signs when in English and walked and walked. It was all worth the effort - even for 69 and 71 year olds!

We went to Wulingyuan Scenic Area on 10 September 2014 by tour group. The first view was a typical Chinese pagoda. Next we were attracted by the beautiful mountain scenery. Everyone of us tried to get a correct spot to take photographs. It was crowded so we had to queue for photograph taking. The weather changed suddenly. Rain! So some... More

Sensational scenery. Lots of lovely walking. We pre hired a guide so we could just relax and follow him throughout the massive park.

The scenery is breath taking. I hired a tour guide at the entrance of the park for RMB 100. She directed me to visit the areas that the weather was less a factor. This money was well spent. The area is like what the movie "Avatar" showed, floating mountains ( tall rocky formations plus Photoshopped effects). I spent two days... More

many reviewers already said everything about it. Its gorgeous and well worth the approx. 8.000 steps, yes, yes, eight thousand, you will do if you spend three days inside the park, plus if you do also the Tianmen Mountain. But you don't need to do the 3.870 steps from the end of the little train up the mountain, you can... More

Visiting wulingyuan is definitely a good choice. Ofcourse there are are quite some tourists, but if you go further into the area, it gets less crowded as well. The best is to stay for two or three days and stay the night in one of the many hotels in the area. Get up early to see the sunrise and to... More
