Our Customer's Feedback after Taking This Tour

Zhangjiajie is one of the most incredible places I have ever seen. If you watched the Avatar, you would remember these famous rocks covered with green forests. What will you see there? Firstly, stunning sight with no similar views in the entire world. Then, lovely Chinese nature comprising a wide range of healing herbs. And don’t forget about local guides who know every step of the tour and are able to make you feel the place in a proper way. - Andrei K

Trip Notes

1. Customizing the Tour - according to your needs

This tour is very flexible. You can alter the itinerary, extend or shorten it to suit your price, interest, and schedule.

You can extend it with an extra day to Fenghuang Ancient Town, where the daytime is picturesque and charming, and the night is lively; or with an extra day to the city of Changsha; or add one more day to discover more at the National Park (the entrance ticket is valid three days). If your time is limited, shortening by one day can also be arranged.

For a multi-city tour, we would recommend combining Zhangjiajie with Guilin (mountain and water scenery), Yangtze River cruise (relaxing cruise on the Yangtze River) or Guizhou (ethnic minority villages). Feel free to tell us your interest and idea.

Weekend Travel Idea for EXPATS, business people, etc.

If you live in China and have very limited time, but still want to explore Zhangjiajie, here is a suggested concentrated itinerary:

Friday night: Most flights land in Zhangjiajie in the evening, so you can take an evening flight after work. Cities with direct evening flights to Zhangjiajie: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Guilin, and Kunming.
Saturday: See the highlights of Zhangjiajie: Yuanjiajie and Tianzi Mountain.
Sunday: Tianmen Mountain and Zhangjiajie departure
