Detailed Tour Itinerary:

Pre-TourStay overnight in Wulingyuan

Arrive into Wulingyuan the day before your tour is scheduled to begin as the tour commences in the morning. Alternatively, we can also schedule the tour to being from Zhangjiajie Airport or Zhangjiajie Railway Station upon your arrival.


Day 1Stay overnight in Wulingyuan
To begin the tour, our tour guide and driver will meet you at your specific Wulingyuan Hotel Lobby at 7:30 am. Visiting Zhangjiajie National Park is best to start earlier in the morning, however, meeting time is flexible as it is a private tour so please discuss beforehand if you have a preferred starting time. You’ll commence the tour by being transferred to Zhangjiajie National Park.

Within Zhangjiajie National Park, the only option for visitors is to take the park shuttle buses between the different viewpoints and areas. Therefore, whilst we will provide private transfers to and from your Wulingyuan/Zhangjiajie City hotel and the parks, within the parks, we’re unable to arrange private transfers as outside vehicles are prohibited.

Upon entering Zhangjiajie National Park, you’ll board a shuttle bus and transfer to the Tianzi Mountain Chairlift spot. From there, board a chairlift offering spectacular views whilst you ascend Tianzi Mountain on a chairlift! Alternatively, visitors can also hike up but this takes a long time and we usually recommend the chairlift for the convenience (allowing more time to explore the views on the mountain top!).

Today’s highlights include the scenery at Yunajiajie. The Yuanjiajie Area in Zhangjiajie National Park, is the main background where the movie Avatar was filmed and is a highlight of visitors’s travels to Zhangjiajie. Discover the different scenery and panoramic views from various angles throughout the park. Moreover, you’ll also explore the scenery in and around Tianzi Mountain offering spectacular Sandstone Peak forest views.

In the afternoon, when you’re ready to depart, we’ll board the world’s largest outdoor elevator (the Bailong Elevator) to return to the base of Tianzi Mountain. Upon exiting Zhangjiajie National Park, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel at Wulingyuan to enjoy the afternoon & evening at leisure.

Day 2Stay overnight in Wulingyuan or Zhangjiajie City

In the morning, enter Zhangjiajie National Park and commence a flat walk (approximately 2.5 x hours) through the valley of Golden Whip Stream. This trail features a grounds-eye perspective of the Avatar scenery, wildlife and some beautiful natural views.

During the afternoon, explore Yellowstone Village which provides the largest platform to sightsee with over 100 different scenic spots on offer. Visitors will take the cable car up to Yellowstone Village and either choose to walk downhill or take the cable car back to the base following the visit to Yellowstone Village. At the conclusion of today’s activities, return transfer to your Wulingyuan Hotel or check in to a new hotel in Zhangjiajie City. Evening at leisure.

Day 3 Stay overnight in Zhangjiajie City/END OF TOUR

To begin today’s tour, you’ll meet your tour guide and driver at your Zhangjiajie City or Wulingyuan Hotel lobby. The time will be discussed the night beforehand as there are allocated times for entering Tianmen Mountain. Upon arriving at Tianmen Mountain, you’ll board the world’s longest cable car from the base of the mountain to the peak. From there, explore the huge natural arch of Tianmen Cave, a hiking trail (ranging in difficulty) offering different views overlooking the karst landforms and even walk across a transparent glass walkway!

For the afternoon’s activities, experience an insight into the local Tujia Ethnic Minority with a visit to the Tujia Folk Park before returning to your hotel to enjoy the evening at leisure or with flight/train departure to conclude the tour.
