Weather: April sees a significant increase in temperature. The average high temperature is 22 °C (72 °F), and the average low temperature is 13 °C (55 °F).
The rainy season begins in April and extends to August. There is about 120 mm of total precipitation each April, and it rains about half of the days of the month. In April and May, it is often foggy or misty.
Clothing: Since it is much warmer but rainy, spring clothing is appropriate, such as light layers and a rain jacket. If it isn't rainy, the days are clear and sunny, so bring a hat and sunglasses.
The roads, stairways, and paths are often slippery, so wear sneakers or walking boots with good traction.
April is the best season to enjoy the spring flowers and scenery in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. The air is clear and fresh in the country, so hiking is a joy. The ice is gone, and everything is verdant.
In early April you can enjoy a walk or hike up the peaks while there are fewer tourists and crowds than in the busy season.
Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge, the world's longest and highest bridge, has been a very popular attraction since it opened. The bridge spans two steep cliffs, and uses transparent glass as its bottom.
If you dare to walk on this glass bridge 300 meters above ground-level, it will be one of the coolest experiences of your China tour.
Surrounded by forested stone peaks, Baofeng Lake is reputed as "one of the world’s classic lakes". It is a great place to enjoy some leisurely time after hiking in the national forest park or the Grand Canyon.
You can enjoy a 30-minute boat ride on the crystal lake as you view the verdant peaks and enjoy the entertainment of local minority people singing their traditional songs.
Since the weather is pleasant, the number of visitors to Zhangjiajie continually increases from April. And the park gets busy by the end of the month.
Hotels, tourist attractions, and restaurants gear up for the crowds, and scenic spots are more crowded. We recommend you to book your tour in advance.
