    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Wulingyuan District, Zhangjiajie 427000 China

    At 9am, your private guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel and take you to Wulingyuan Scenic Area, where Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is located, to visit its two most classic and popular attractions.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Tianzi Mountain, Wulingyuan District, Zhangjiajie 427400 China

    Take a cable car up to Tianzi Mountain, and you will see large areas of grotesque peaks thrusting up. Walking along the steps spectacular views unfold in front of you from different angles.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Yuanjiajie, Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China

    In the afternoon, ride a public shuttle bus to Yuanjiajie Scenic Area, whose mountains are said to be the inspiration for Avatar's Hallelujah Mountain. This area is the most visited area due to its fame. It takes about 1 hour to walk the tourist trails, before you take the shuttle bus for the cable car down the mountain.

    Your trip will come to an end around 5pm and you will be dropped back to your hotel in Zhangjiajie city center. Transfer to the train station for your departure train is also workable.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: BaiLong Elevator, National Forest Park, Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie China

    There is another option for getting down the mountain - Bailong Elevator. This glass elevator was built on the side of a cliff, and it claims to be the world's highest of its kind. It takes only 2 minutes, but at peak times you might need to queue one or two hours to take it. If you are interested in taking the elevator, tell your guide in advance, so that he/she can arrange beforehand to avoid the long queues.

    Duration: 30 minutes
