Zhangjiajie is located in Hunan province in south central China. The most notable feature of the national park is its pillar like rock formations. After rain, there will be mist and low hanging clouds and the rock pillars will appear to float like in the Avatar movie. Unfortunately the day we went, there was only this haze that flattens out the landscape and my photographs really didn’t do this place justice. It is beautiful but I most probably won’t return again mainly because of the crowds. The ticket is good for 3 days but all the cable car, elevator, train, and boat rides are extra.
By now, we were a bit “rock-pillared-out” and everything started looking the same and the ooh’s and the ahh’s from yesterday were no more. We decided to go for a stroll along the Golden Whip Stream.
