Golden Whip Brook, Zhangjiajie

4.2
#5 of 21 in Parks 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. You can plan Zhangjiajie trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • If you have seen Yuanjiajie or Tianzi Mountain in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, the view in this site is just ok. We just did a one hour walking in the valley along the river, a relaxing place.  more »
  • And very nice walk along the water. You will find lots of monkeys! A walk that surely is worth it. We are about 1.5 hours and then walked along the water went back, it was not entirely clear where it ended and whether we could come back from there than at the hotel. And since we had the night train late afternoon we wanted to not risk that we were too late for back. But an extraordinarily beautiful nature!!
