Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is famous for thousands of striking sandstone and quartz monoliths, standing tall like upright javelins. It is easy to see the comparison between Zhangjiajie’s mountains and those of Avatar’s Pandora.
At the bottom, you can enjoy a pleasant walk along the river’s edge. When you climb up to the top, you will be rewarded with some of the most spectacular views.
This park is different to many of the other national parks in China — the park is massive and you can really utilize every one of the four days of the entry ticket validity by venturing out to different sections.
A fine place to see the late fall scenery and the fog all around is Tianmen Mountain. You can take a cable car ride up to the summit and enjoy awesome views of the whole area. If you prefer, you can hike up to the top of the mountain in about two or three hours.
At the top of the mountain, there is a long glass-bottomed skywalk that stretches for 600 meters along the side of the peak. It is a terrifying walk for many people when they can look down past their feet to the ground that’s a kilometer below them. It is certainly something to remember for a long time.
If it is cold, Yellow Dragon Cave is a good place to keep you warm as it is always around 15 °C (59 °F) inside the cave.
It is one of Asia's largest caves, extending for more than 10 kilometers. It is so big that there is a boat tour inside. You can see a large number of stalagmites, stalactites, underground streams, and large caverns.
November is an ideal month to see the area since the large crowds are gone. The weather is still pleasant before the big drop in temperature in December. The cooler weather allows you to enjoy the scenery with more tranquility.
Hotel accommodations are moderately priced in November and tickets for flights are less expensive.
