Tianzi Mountain Clouds, Zhangjiajie

4.7
#2 of 8 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. Make Tianzi Mountain Clouds part of your personalized Zhangjiajie itinerary using our Zhangjiajie tourist route planner.

    A must see national park if you are visiting this area. Breathtaking scenery but be warned it will be a long walk to see everything if you don't use the buses provided to get you to various locations....  more »

    If you look at the words as much as the film's famous place is enough to be difficult to go unspeakable. People's Republic of China really is a gift from God down to the calm envy.
