(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at thousands of sandstone pillars, some over 200 m (656 ft) tall, at Wulingyuan Scenic and Historic Interest Area of Zhangjiajie--a World Heritage Site encompassing 40 scenic areas and over 560 points of interest. Spanning 690 sq km (266 sq mi), the area features endangered plant and animal life, a score of caves, two large natural bridges, gorges with streams and waterfalls, and the tree-spotted limestone formations that inspired the Hollywood blockbuster, "Avatar." Take a well-maintained trail or hire a guide. A 30-minute cable ride gives the best views, while a museum of geological history en route adds context. Organized tours may include some rafting.
