Golden Whip Brook, Zhangjiajie

4.2
#4 of 38 in Things to do in Zhangjiajie
Praised as “the gallery of landscape,” Golden Whip Brook winds across valleys, between steep cliffs, and around grotesque mountain peaks, offering many scenic spots along the way. The brook got its name because it flows past a 350 m (1,148 ft) tall rock, which looks like a “bian” (Chinese for whip). Legend has it that the first emperor of the Qin dynasty, on one of his journeys to the sea, left his weapon here, which turned into a stone peak. Another rock standing next to it resembles a flying hawk, which is said to be the guardian of the whip. Walk along scenic pathways rimmed with trees and flowers, and keep your eyes peeled for the spot where the brook runs through four stone gates.

    Rains went up in the cable car and offers views from the top spot and during the haze, enjoy the view at all. So even when a shape seen from the ground here so enjoy rock formations. So even when you know way back in time so good without having to move the Park's shuttle time is recommended.

    The natural landscape, especially outside the eyes of China, can attract the eye, Cardinality, there's strange finish. If the theoretical things tend to port, a big finish. Theory of strange, loss of the ordinary. 灣 Moat Park in Hsinchu, suitable for other rivers in winter, Kaohsiung's Love River, 墾 Ding Shaka postpone moonstruck trail has a pleasant scene or landscape. If you just want to play summer water, can't must fly to Zhang Jia Jie, 灣 this place has is enough. Introduction by scene or landscape to attract the same time, game players see worthy of reference.
