Tianzi Mountain Clouds, Zhangjiajie

4.7
#3 of 15 in Wildlife in Hunan
One of the most idiosyncratic and otherworldy landscapes on the planet, the World Heritage Site of Tianzi Mountain Clouds affords memorable views of towering columns of rock, furnished by trees and shrouded in misty clouds. Covering 67 sq km (25.8 sq mi), the Mountain Nature Reserve's highest peak stands at 1,262 m (4,140 ft) above sea level. In 1982, the reserve became China's first national forest park, and 10 years later was recognized byUNESCO. Take a cable car to a complex of various viewing platforms, and admire the odd and angular (seemingly gravity-defying) geologicial structures. Bring your camera along, as you'll want to take those awe-inspiring views home with you.

  • Meta virtually unknown to Westerners. One of the most beautiful natural landscapes I've ever seen! It is very rainy (200 days a year the guide was saying) and still very moist even when it's not raining. So very hard to find clear day. However, even with the mist these mountains are wonderful!
