Pack your sense of adventure and get ready for a journey in the heart of China—Zhangjiajie National Park! Located in the expansive Wulingyuan Scenic Area, this remarkable site is not just a park; it’s a canvas painted with lush forests, deep canyons, and, of course, those iconic pillar-like rock formations. So, what are the things that make Zhangjiajie a must-visit destination? Here’s the nitty gritty.
The Pillars – Zhangjiajie’s Signature Landscape
When it comes to Zhangjiajie National Park, nature is the artist and the canvas is vast—this park boasts unique quartz-sandstone pillar rock formations, making it a standout. Unlike your typical limestone pillars, these beauties were sculpted by the relentless rains, creating a landscape that has inspired countless works of art.
For Adventurers Only: The Bailong Elevator and Glass Bridge
If you’re up for a ride that will take your breath away, the Bailong Elevator, nicknamed the “Hundred Dragons Sky Lift,” is not your average elevator – it’s the world’s tallest outdoor lift. Ascend 1,070 feet in less than 2 minutes and witness the sprawling beauty of the park from the top. But the adventure doesn’t stop there! For a true adrenaline rush, walk the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge. The longest and highest pedestrian glass bridge globally, it stretches 1,410 feet at a height of 980 feet.
