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).

  • Magnificent park with huge and tall rocks spilt on all the parts of this park, Great looks with every rock isolated from each other, this is a huge park covering more than 278k acres of land. Surrounded by the high spear shaped rocks and huge trees. These rocks with their varied shapes and sizes are the main attraction of all the tourist. Visitors from many parts of the world come here to watch these rocks.
  • Great park! The bit of advice is to make your way to the exit at 6pm. I didn't and got to the exit at 8pm. No buses or taxis and had to walk to a town. It's a fantastic park with great views. You'll easily spend 3 days here.
  • It was a lovely place to feel amaze with the nature. And of course it reminds me of the movie Avatar! I can imagine them jumping from the top of the hill haha. Anyway, the view depends on the weather, if it's a sunny day, then you wont get a misty feel of the fog. Sometimes the place can be too crowded, especially in the Avatar area. If you want to enjoy the nature, you can try the trekking track that needs a long time to finish. I saw this track from above the cable car, and only saw 2 persons walking down hehe. Some of the points are connected with shuttle bus (free) and cable car (pay).
  • Awesome place of World Tourism I want to go here I wish I will go once at my future
  • One of the most beautiful places in the world. Too many smokers and crowded visitors might spoil your visiting fun, he prepared.
