What to Expect

Day 1: Zhangjiajie National park

Stop At: Tianzi Mountain, Wulingyuan District, Zhangjiajie 427400 China
Today you will head for one of the most famous attractions in the park and the one that attracts the most tourists – The Son of Heaven Mountain (Tianzishan). You will ascend the mountain by cable-car and at the top you will be able to enjoy views of Warrior Taming Horse Rock and the Western Sea which are two of the most stunning mountain formations in the whole park and are really a pleasure to see.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Yangjiajie Scenic Area, Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China, 427403
After visiting Tianzi Mountain you will continue on to a spot that is far less visited and can be a little difficult to find because the well surfaced paths soon disappear and the trail leads through heavy fores. arriving at the viewing point known as One Step To Heaven. Unlike the name suggests this isn’t actually just one step to heaven, but more of a metal staircase which leads to a metal viewing platform. From here you can admire 360 degree views of the surrounding peaks, a certainly unforgettable moment but one which is not accessible to all. The viewing platform isn’t recommended for those who suffer from vertigo and we suggest that for this trip you wear sturdy shoes. The Corridor in the Sky is another fantastic view point that you will pass by on the walk back from the One Step to Heaven scenic spot.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Yuanjiajie, Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China, 427000
You will continue on visit Yuanjiajie, which is the shooting place of the movie Avatar, from where you’ll stand the same level with the pillar mountains, and then take elevator down.
Duration: 1 hour

Day 2: Golden whip stream+Tianmen mountain

Stop At: Golden Whip Brook, In Wulingyuan District, Wulingyuan District, Zhangjiajie 427400 China
your day will begin with a stroll along the Golden Whip Stream, giving you another angle from which you can view the amazing pillar-like peaks. From here they appear to shoot up into the sky like giant natural skyscrapers. Adored by the Chinese, the peaks have been given a number of different poetic names, including the tallest which stands at 400 metres and is known as the Magical Eagle Protecting the Whip. The water in the stream is clear, the air pure and the site very well maintained. It is a real treat for those who have been stuck in China’s megacities for the first leg of their tour. You may even stumble upon groups of monkeys which some (misadvised or well-intentioned) tourists like to feed, but we urge you to not follow their counterproductive example and leave the animals well alone!
Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park, Tianmen Mountain Ticket Station, Yongding District, Zhangjiajie 427000 China
Then transfer to Tianmen Mountain, take half an hour riding on the longest cable-car in the world (about 7.5 km) directly reach the top of Tianmen mountain. Have a breathless walking along the glass plank-road against the cliff. Tianmen cave, the natural mountain-penetrating karst cave with the highest elevation in the world, hangs on the towering cliff. There are many graceful trees, karts hillocks and medicinal herbs and plants on the mountain. Transfer to the airport, finish the pleasant trip in Zhangjiajie! End of service!
