You start off with walking down 1000+ steps which leaves one pretty much tired out. But the quiet of the nature that follows when walking along the stream makes it worth the walk. Flying fox was a nice breather from all the walking and the boat ride at the end was good to rest the tired legs. Look out for... More

Lots of steps (it IS a canyon!) and slides and even a zip line! A beautiful outdoor adventure. Reading the reviews leaves me perplexed as to WHY people would go to a hiking destination and complain about steps??? Its far easier to walk than a trail would be. Scenic trails along a river. Please, if you are not able, please... More

I put this as a title to warn those who have knee problem as climbing down 1500 steps is not easy. Some part is slippery even not on a rainy day. There are couple of rides that i did not try worrying about the safety standard. The view is nice and after the steps, the walk is flat and easy.... More

We went through the Grand Canyon in early May. While on its own it's not as impressive as nearby Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, if you are the extreme sport type, you'll want to come here. With the world's longest glass bridge in construction, extending from one edge of the canyon to the other, and bungee jumping going on underneath, I... More

We were sold this optional tour by the tour operator. It is simply described as The Grand Valley Tour. No other details were made available Unfortunately it was a rainy day. It was immensely crowded with local tourists. All we were told to do, is to keep walking and descending. The climb down was so steep, steps made slippery by... More

Nothing spectacular. Its quite dangerous walking down from the top to midway down the valley as the stairs are very steep. Not recommended for weak knees, children and seniors.. The most stupid thing is the slide. From midway down you need to descend the valley via the stone slide. You will definitely dirty your pants and may even damage your... More

The place is really nice for a relaxing hiking along the sides of the river through the mountains and caves and the final boat ride makes you go back with a happy face. The ticket seem a little expensive....

An impressive canyon with steep steps to the canyon floor. Or you can take a strange marble slide the last half of the way down (a unique, fun experience). A really nice peaceful walk (we went at low season, I imagine it not to be very peaceful during peak season) and a free boat on a beautiful lake to the... More

The boat was in good condition with a slow ride for a great scenic view. Great nature and good ride with natural forest, animal, cool air and some of the rock formation look a animal.
