Water Body Nature / Park
Take a boat tour around Baofeng Lake, a World Natural Heritage Area. The lake offers great views of the mountains surrounding it, as well as numerous picturesque waterfalls adding to the scenery. Though most of the boat guides don’t speak English, you can still spend some time in the fresh air looking at the reflection of the stone peaks and green trees in the 72 m (236 ft) deep lake. During the ride, performers come out onto the lake and sing to visitors, adding an extra element to the experience.

Where to stay in Zhangjiajie

An abundance of accommodations can be found across Zhangjiajie, but the most popular with international tourists sit on either bank of the Lishui River. Whether you're looking for a luxury hotel or a simple guesthouse, the waterfront areas and adjoining streets remain the primary places to look. Ziwu Road the north of the city center also offers a range of accommodations to choose from, and good connections to the main natural sights in the surrounding landscape. To stay closer to the national park, stay in the town of Wulingyuan, located near the park's main sights.
