Marvel at the towering sandstone pillars rising from Zhangjiajie’s primeval forests, traverse vertigo-inducing glass walkways high above plunging valleys, and soak up epic vistas from celestial peaks.

Day by day schedule:


Day 1: Zhangjiajie Arrival

Begin your journey with a warm welcome as we pick you up from the airport or train station. Settle into your comfortable hotel and take the evening to relax or explore at your leisure. Anticipate the adventures that await in the land where nature’s artistry knows no bounds.


Day 2: Tianzi Mountain and Yuanjiajie National Park

Our first stop today is Tianzi Mountain. We will take a cable car to ascend the mountain, where you can admire the unique landforms of canyons and plateaus. Next, we will take a shuttle bus to Kongzhongtianyuan, also known as the Garden in the Sky. Here you can see peaceful farmland nestled among towering mountains, where crops are cultivated.
Afterwards, the bus will bring us to Yuanjiajie, the most popular area in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. You’ll be amazed by the vertical rock pillars covered in greenery, said to have inspired the floating mountains in the film Avatar. Finally, we will descend from the mountain via the Bailong Elevator for spectacular views of the landscape below.


Day 3: Glass Bridge Walk and Golden Whip Brook

This morning we will drive to Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon. Here you will have the unique experience of walking across the Glass Bridge suspended 429 meters above the canyon floor. Choose your descent method – zipline or elevator + slide.
After taking in the grand canyon views, we will transfer to Golden Whip Brook for a relaxing hike through shaded forest trails. Look for playful monkeys in the trees!


Day 4: Tianmen Mountain and Fenghuang Ancient Town

After breakfast, we’ll drive to scenic Tianmen Mountain. We’ll take the 7.6 meter long glass-encased cable car up the mountain, enjoying panoramic views of Zhangjiajie city and the winding 99 Bends Road below. Next, walk along the breathtaking Glass Walkway suspended high above the cliffs. From the mountain top, descend 999 stone steps to the magnificent Tianmen Cave. Often called the “Gate of Heaven,” allow time to explore this giant karst formation.
After our visit, we’ll transfer to the well-preserved historic town of Fenghuang either by high-speed train or by vehicle. The majority of Fenghuang’s residents are of the Miao ethnic minority group. In the evening, you can stroll along the scenic Tuo River banks.


Day 5: Fenghuang Boat Ride and Departure

This morning, take a relaxing 15-minute boat ride down the Tuo River to fully appreciate the charming wooden residences perched along the riverbanks. Following the boat tour, spend your final hours exploring the cobbled alleyways and historical buildings on your own at a leisurely pace.
In the afternoon, we’ll transfer you to the Zhangjiajie train station or the airport for a flight departing after 5pm to begin your journey home.
