Golden Whip Brook, Zhangjiajie
(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Golden Whip Brook by using our Zhangjiajie tourist route planner.

  • Very easy walk through the park, lots of curious monkeys to see, really feel the height of the mountains around you! 
  • The walk is lovely and really easy, but the best views are in other areas of the park. It is good to come down this way from a long hike or use the middle section as a way to avoid the elevator. 
  • Nahal allows himself does not pochuvsvovat' King, a guest of the Kingdom of the beasts) such number of monkeys can be seen, probably only in the monkey house. But here they live, climb trees, basking, njan'chat obez'janyshej. You can watch them endlessly, the smile on the face, so it touches the spectacle. Prepare a meal in advance, then will be able to communicate with the brothers, less personally. Definitely recommend to go that route.
