Hightlights of my Tour: Zhangjiajie National park ( Huangshi village, Golden Whip Brook , Yellow Dragon cave, Glass bridge )

I was so glad I finally had a chance to finish my wish tour to Zhangjiajie, but due to time limit I have to skip some places…. (ಥ﹏ಥ ) anyway that was so exciting as I have saw the “ Golden Whip Brook”,  “Huangshi village”,  “Yellow Dragon Cave” and “Glass Bridge” in Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon.

Day 1  Chengdu-Changsha

We took a morning flight from Chengdu to Changsha, because do love to taste the most spicy and delicious Hunan Cuisine. The food was really good! Words are pale, just see the pictures.

Day 2  Changsha-Zhangjiajie

We took a morning train from Changsha to Zhangjiajie which was about 5 hours. When we arrived in Zhangjiajie and were out of station we saw the longest cableway slowly run above our heads, so interesting.

After having lunch, we took a bus to Wulingyuan. It was about 2 hours’ drive and in the afternoon, we finally arrived in our hotel and saw a piece of view of Zhangjiajie National Park. PS. I forget to take a pictures here…⁄(⁄⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄⁄)⁄

Tip: Zhangjiajie airport and train station are both in downtown. Tianmen Mountain is about 5 minutes’ walking far away from the train station and 15 minutes’ driving from the airport. If you arrive at noon and stay overnight in downtown the first day, you could visit Tianmen Mountion in the afternoon.

Day3  Zhangjiajie National Park ( Golden Whip Brook-Huangshi Village)

After breakfast, we went to Zhangjiajie National park directly. After entering the park, we got on the free eco-car and got off at the entrance of Golden Whip Brook.  Start!

We walked along the road while resting to eat some local food, in total, we took about two and a half hours to finish Golden Whip Brook.

Then, we took the cable car up to the top of Huanshi Village, and took the small circle’s visit there. Due to cold weather, there are heavy moist which make the Huanshi Village a paradise and visitors here were playing a performance “ Waiting the wind”… only if the wind blow, we can take a view of a piece of Huangshi Village. Hhhh~

Rain is very very heavy today, so we change plan to go a place indoor -Yellow Dragon Cave. Actually, we are a little upset due to the rain, but Yellow Dragon Cave surprised us as the scene were so beautiful no matter outside or inside.

After the tour, we came back to Wulingyuan and walked around, like Xibu Street where is with many local stores. ^_^

Tip: Yellow Dragon Cave takes about 1 hour’s visiting. You can go to Grand Canyon the same day, but should order the ticket about 5 days in advance.

Day 5 Glass Bridge – Zhangjiajie Departure

In the morning, we went to the Glass Bridge. With much heavy fog, we felt like walking in the sky, and no fear at all because we see nothing down there…hhhh….

The heavy fog made the the Glass Bridge a road to the fairyland
