Relaxing walk along the river

This is a way to meet the beautiful nature walking along the river. The path is easy and nice. You can take a bath in the river and sunbathing as well.

On our second day in zhangjiajie after seeing the avatar mountains from the upper parts we took a long walk at the bottom of the mountains. It takes around 3 hrs to do . The scenery is beautiful with the sound of the water stream. It was such a relaxing day feeling surrounded by natures beauty.

It was a lovely walk but it wasn't all that mind blowing to be honest. It's nice to begin your adventure from the walk along the stream and take it slow before you really start to sweat. At some point monkeys start accompanying you along the way, some of them are quite aggressive. One cheeky monkey was ambitious enough to... More

My family enjoyed walking along the river which is a good 20km hike. There is plenty to see along the way and you can take your shoes off an enjoy the refreshing mountain water. Please be aware that there are very few toilets along the path. One thing that struck me is sadly the amount of rubbish but they do... More

Allow a few hours as there is plenty of stops along the way. Toilets are also available along the track even though 2 were under construction when... More

Love this place - walk up to one end of the brock to take photo of Netiri statue - looks very real. Also, there is a drummer who plays to the local songs - try drumming =) Watch out for the monkeys - dont look at them in the eye and dont eat and walk near them. An unforgettable experience.

The walk along Golden Whip brook is excellent. Because of the damp and shade ut can be slippery. So watch your step.

Choose if you are healthy. I dont recommend if you have elder parents and kids in the age of 4-6. I found people carrying their parent on their shoulders and tired parents by carrying the child. The walk is about 10 Kms, Just to enjoy the nature and refresh your lungs.. Oxygen rich air. Nothing much to climb; The water... More
