Highlights of scenic spots
Yuan Jiajie: Landing on Pandora Planet in “Avatar”
Yuanjiajie is the filming location of “Hallelujah Mountain” in the movie “Avatar”, where you can explore the magical world of floating mountains and dotted with stars in the movie. If it happens that there is a light rain in the mountains, or when it clears up after the rain, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of mist and peaks. Mihun Terrace is an ideal location for viewing the scenery. Standing on the platform, there are hundreds of stone peaks standing all around, which is majestic. Here you can also see the No. 1 Bridge in the World, which spans between the two mountains and has a vertical height difference of 357 meters.
Tianzi Mountain: The Son of Heaven does not look at the mountain when he returns
When visiting Tianzi Mountain, you will see various geological landscapes and peaks with strange shapes, such as Yubi Peak, Fairy Presenting Flowers, Dianjiang Terrace, Sky Garden, Fairy Bridge, etc. Don’t pay too much attention to the likeness of these natural shapes, because “primitive scenery and natural beauty” is the charm of Tianzi Mountain. Especially in the hazy fog after the rain and the early sunshine, it seems to be in a fairyland. When the mountains are covered with snow in winter, the scenery is even more charming.
Huangshizhai: Climb to the top to see all the small mountains
“If you don’t go to Huangshizhai, you can’t go to Zhangjiajie in vain.” Huangshizhai is a viewing platform in Zhangjiajie Forest Park. It is surrounded by cliffs and green trees, and the top of the village is often cloudy and foggy. Climb to the top of Huangshizhai and look around, you can experience the pride of “seeing all the mountains and small ones at a glance”.
Yangjiajie: Stimulus seeks in danger
Yangjiajie is mainly dominated by primitive scenery and natural beauty, with high mountains and narrow roads, known for its “dangerousness”, and is deeply loved by backpackers and explorers. The Wulongzhai in the scenic area is a very magical place in Zhangjiajie. In the past, the bandits in western Hunan lived here. Later, it was renamed according to the TV series “Wulongshan Bandit Suppression”. The cottage is built on the mountain, and there is still a road up and down the mountain. It takes hands and feet to climb to the top of the mountain.
Suoxi Valley: Natural Splashed Ink Landscape Scroll
Suoxiyu is also called Suoxi, because the stream in the scenic spot is shaped like a rope. Unlike other places in the forest park, it is shrouded in clouds and mists all year round, with clear streams running continuously in all seasons, and beautiful peaks can be seen everywhere. Shili Gallery is the essence of Suoxiyu. In the 5-kilometer-long canyon, there are fragrant wild flowers, strange peaks and rocks. Walking through it is like walking into a natural landscape painting.
Golden Whip Creek
Golden Whip Creek: The Filming Location of Journey to the West
Jinbianxi Canyon is the earliest area to be developed in the scenic area. A clear stream passes through the valley, with towering peaks on both sides, and greenery everywhere. This is also one of the filming locations of the classic version of “Journey to the West”. Movie fans can come here to see classic scenes such as Water Curtain Cave, Splitting the Mountain to Save the Mother and so on.
