zhangjiajie Inns inside Zhangjiajie Forest Park

Zhangjiajie Forest Park is a large scenic area. If you are planning a longer tour, or if you are interested in photography, you may consider staying inside Zhangjiajie Forest Park. It can save your time waiting in lines and stuck in the traffic while accessing the park.

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is open from 7 am to 6 pm, but stay inside the park and you can appreciate the natural beauty from sunrise to sunset.

The most important thing you should know is that there are no star-rated hotels inside the park, only inns and hostels with basic facilities.

'Fourth Fragrant Banyan' Village

The best inns in the park are in 'Fourth Fragrant Banyan' Village (Dingxiangrong /ding-syang-rong/ Village), near Tianzi Mountain (/tyen-dzuh shan/ 'Emperor's Son Mountain'). It has the following three inns that you may consider.
