Shu'nan Bamboo Forest, Changning County
(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
The oldest and largest bamboo forest in China, Shu'nan Bamboo Forest spreads over 120 sq km (46 sq m) of mountains and valleys. To get around, you can rent a car and a driver--the only transport available inside the park. Hike along streams, waterfalls, and lakes, and duck inside caves. On a cable car ride, absorb the tranquility of the rippling sea of bamboo and spot the statues and relics in the cliff side. Admire views from the hilltops, and then plunge into the woods by following the "bamboo corridor." Treat your body to the fresh forest air and discover why they filmed "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" here.

  • Šunan′ National Park Žuhaj (the Southern Sichuan Bamboo Sea, bamboo sea) is one of the 40 best tourist attractions of Chinese biosphere protection zone. This is a huge bamboo forest, lakes and waterfalls throughout the territory. Its area is 120 square kilometers. Bamboo forest is located in the southwest of the mountains at an altitude of Liantian 600 to 1000 meters. I'm sorry that we had there for only a day. Love to stay longer to enjoy the peace and quiet of the picturesque province. Such is the feature of the trip, in which all organizational matters decides to travel, releasing them from worries about where to eat, where to sleep, how to get there and what to watch. Tourist manages to much to see, but always in a hurry! One day we visited the Leshan Giant Buddha statue, stopped at a picturesque ancient town Ližuan′ (Lizhuang Ancient town) and, finally, a late night got in Šunan′ National Park Žuhaj. Placed us in a lovely hotel on a small Islet in the middle of the Lake, with the Bank he was connected by two bridges. Would be perfect to live there in the warm season, but in January it was too cold. It seems like we were the only guests, and the staff was considerate and caring. Due to peak loads on the electrical network at the hotel several times ceo, but light quickly corrected. Worked Wi-Fi. To ensure that tourists come here at any time of the year, would have to build buildings to modern energy-saving technologies to the heating system (airs) maintained a comfortable temperature 20 degrees in the winter and summer. January and February would be a perfect spot in the bamboo forest. In these months, rainfall is minimal falls, not hot. Walk on the deserted Park more pleasant than in the summer heat in the rain go on and wet slippery stairs in a crowd of other tourists. Inherits the day after an early breakfast we went to Emerald Corridor (allea)-Emerald alley under the Arch of bamboo thickets. Then walked along the stream in the Valley Complete Tranquility (Wangyou Valley). Perhaps I do not exactly remember the name, but this place creates this mood. I want to sit down with your campers sages and enjoy the gurgling water and rustling bamboo leaves. We had to limit itself to photograph with statues and people rush to climb on the trail to the falls. On running water, people can watch forever, as photographed from various points of highest waterfall-the more so. Eat a little, bought souvenirs and left a wonderful oasis of bliss. We saw temples, caves, ropeway, not rolling on the Lakes on a bamboo raft. The journey continued.
