Long flat walk
Jul 2021 • Family
So this hike can be very long, from the bus dropoff point with millions of people, you can walk to oxygen bar 7.5km away. It is a flat, paved walk right along the river though with nice views of the stones above. You need to walk a bit jn to really get away from the tourists, many kids play in the stream. The water is crystal clear and full of fish and crabs. About 1hr in, there is the steep 2000 step turnoff to the top of mountain. I don't think there are any vendors selling water on the hike up. On our way back, on the same path, we saw many many wild monkeys. They brazenly steal food and walk right in front of you. Kind of cool but also scary.

Very relaxing walk
Jul 2021 • Family
I loved this walk. Super easy and walking next to the stream was nice.
My boys all had a dip in the spring mountain water but it was cold? !
Easy peasy walk, all flat. You walk next to the stream.
We started our walk at the Oxygen Bar place, this walk can also connect you to the actual Avatar walk. You need to take the steps up but it’s all well signposted.
We well kept, clean and has places to buy food and drinks.
There are lots of monkeys too so be aware !

Wonderful walk and Picnic spot
Apr 2021 • Couples
Great place for a quiet walk along the river, but you should walk about an hour away from the main centre where most of the tourists stay.

If you walk along the river you will find a set of steps and if you up to it (2505 steps) you can walk all the way to the top of the Yuanjiajie Scenic Spot.

If you have limited time, give this a miss

Of the three days we had in Zhangjiajie this was the least inspiring place we visited. It is lovely but maybe because it was our last day we had already seen enough so it was nothing new? Not sure but as we hiked around for a couple of hours we were thinking we just wanted to go back to the hotel.

Fresh air and nice walk !

Away from the usual crowds, you can find the piece at this small path where you can hear the sound of the stream and enjoy the peacefulness! Easy to track and you can walk few km long. Nothing special than any of the view you can probably capture in other part of Zhangjiajie !

Nice river walk
Oct 2019
The river was flowing ever so softly which added to the nice walk. People took photos in and around the small river. Be careful because the rocks were slippery and I saw someone fall. Very picturesque and on a nice day you can forget the city.

Scenic area - recommended for a visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
Alighted at Water winding the four gates bus stop for the start of a 2 hr plus walk. Most of the tour groups could be found only in the starting or ending part of the trail. It was quiet and serene as one walked further into the brook. Despite it being a rainy morning, the walk was enjoyable.
On reaching the trail end near the Oxygen bar, walk towards the exit of the park where one can take a minibus back to Wulingyuan for 10 yuan (about 30 min frequency).

A steady stream of flowing waters, bouncing against some protruding rocks sitting in the middle of the stream. Green grasses flourish along the river side, happily dancing to the cool flow of waters brushing against. The autumn trees its leaves starting to change its shade of multi hue colours, smiles with the soft breeze & fluttering in the light wind blow. Against the light blue sky, a picture perfect setting with the weather beaten hills & mountains form the whole photo for a beautiful painting onto canvas - not to be missed.

Local mountain stream
Sep 2019 • Couples
A nice walk along the stream in the afternoon. The walk can be 5-7 kilometers long. Most of the walk is under shaded trees. The stream runs over rocks and plants, which often you will see small fish. Very peaceful walk when you get away from the crowds.

Pleasant walk
Sep 2019 • Solo
Golden Whip Stream would be my final Area in the park which was a pleasant flat hike parallel to the namesake stream for about seven kilometers. The hike offered views of some of the formations seen from the top from a different perspective.
