Located in the remote area of southern China, Zhangjiajie has been one of the popular destinations for domestic nature and outdoor lovers. In 2009, Zhangjiajie was widely known to the world as the show of movie “Avatar” which was said to be inspired by the craggy sandstone peaks in the Park.

Many would also try a walk over the world’s longest glass bridge and adventure to the Grand Canyon. Book a private tour or join in a budget coach tour to fulfill a dream of Zhangjiajie.
