Morning:(Elevator up) Yuanjiajie,Yangjiajie.Afternoon:Tianzi Mountain(Cablecar down). Nightstay in Wuingyuan. 

Yuanjiajie (Classic&popular Spot,1 hour walk)

It’s one of the highlighted area in ZJJ National Park chosen to be the main background of the Movie: Avatar. No wonder,it becomes the most popular spot for all people. the peaks here are bigger in size, the view is close, fantastic too. Moreover, there is a World Highest Sightseeing Elevator (326m) which’s regarded as a big controversy existing against UNESCO, but It does bring an much easier way for going up to Yuanjiajie than spending 3.5 hours’ crazy trek on 9000 steps.The only problem for Yuanjiajie is ,in busy season, it would be unavoidably crowded.

Yangjiajie used to be the military base for the local bandit in old times, it’s a pretty wild area for nature-lovers, there is a narrow and fun bandit path leading to the top of Yangjiajie, called Wulong Village, which requires 2 hours to go forward&back. there are some spots on the path which are quite narrow, Big-sized guys may not make through.

Tianzi Mountain (Classic Spot,2 hours easy tour)

Tianzi means “Heavenly Prince”. Mt.Tianzi is an area for the hero of Tujia Minority, who commands local to fight with government army in Ming Dynasty. The scenic spots here are combined with stories and legends of this fate-selected prince of Heaven. Visually, the view is different from other parts of park: the peaks are much thinner and sharper, since it’s has the biggest opening platform, we can definitely experience the most spectacular view of sandstone peak forest in this park. and it’s one of the highlights in Zhangjiajie Scenic Area.

It’s visually and emotionally beautiful. Moreover, there is no language barrier for people, everyone who sees it would understand it and be strongly amazed by it.

Tianmen Mountain (Popular Spot,4-8hours depends on situation of tourist No.)

Tianmen Mountain, appears as the ”New Legend Of Zhangjiajie “. It’s the highest spot (1500m) in the whole Zhangjiajie area. The landscape there is totally different from, meanwhile, at the same level as the ZJJ national Park. Both are world-class scenery. Unbelievably, this single mountain holds 4 World Guinness Records in its small body. and any of them will be overwhelmingly impressive to the traveler of any type. Just amazing to be the thing we will never experience.
(Notice: Only 1 problem bothers tourists: In busy tourism season, there will be long queues, sometimes, it’s crazily long. It really makes people frustrated, but only when we stand on its top, we would realize it’s worthy.)

  • The fine weather condition. 

If the reality is not promising it, the itinerary can be adjusted by the guide for bettering the travel experience. If it increases the tour cost on extra parts, it would be on your side. But the choice is still yours to follow the original or the revised one.

  • No Shopping,No Hidden Cost.100%Sightseeing Tour With Real Travel Experience

The travel style from Travel Agencies Of China normally is:”Half day of rushy tour, Half day of shopping activities”.Because in order to attract more people to join in their tours. They usually offer low quotation,sometimes, even lower than the real cost, then they turn back to give a heavy pressure on the guide and driver which are little paid or not paid. Then the guide and driver have to steal some portions of your tour time from sightseeing and take you to shops for purchasing stuff to fill the hole of the deficit with the commission,meanwhile get their own income. It’s the common practice for China Tourism. But we decide to take a different way and respect them and their work by paying them a reasonable amount for getting full time travel. It will benefit both.

  • What You Should Bring
  • Small backpack for daily activity in which water,snacks, camera,proper dress,and other daily neccessities can be put in
