Marvel at the towering rock formations of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, part of an extensive World Heritage Site and one of the nation's most iconic attractions. More than 3,000 quartz-and-sandstone pillars point skyward throughout the park, resembling a forest of rocks--more than 1,000 stand more than 198 m (650 ft) high. Explore the park's huge network of trails through the dense temperate forest, home to numerous wild macaques. You'll find the park also boasts lakes, caves, and a cable car that can take you up to the area's highest point. Don't miss the Southern Sky Column, one of the park's tallest and most popular pillars, which reaches a height of 1,080 m (3,540 ft). Using our custom trip planner, Zhangjiajie attractions like Zhangjiajie National Forest Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • beautiful place & wide area. Entrance ticket Cny 245; valid for 4 days from the date of purchase and non transferable. At least you need 2-3day in this park
  • Expansive and beautiful area. Fog is a constant companion.
  • My favorite place in the world...Can't wait to go back...
  • Very nice.
  • A huge amount of Chinese tourists during summer months. Walking paths will be full of people that move at very slow pace. I tend to walk fast and this was super annoying. Certain spots, especially on top of the mountain reachable by elevator were totally overrun by tourists. In any case, the place is worth the visit. Don't go early morning as lines are incredibly long, better to wait until lunch time. Half a day is enough to see most of the stuff. Entrance fee is good for 4 days (multiple visits) which is great if your hotel is near park, There are free buses available to get from one spot to the other inside the park.
