Stayed there for some days. The trip from town to the top of the mountain is a must-see. Especially the valley and the view from the top on a clear day offers fantastic views.

The main drawback of this park is the difficulty to get to it. We needed to boat for 3 hours from Yichang then took the bus forever. Unfortunately the weather was terrible. It rained all the time and it was fogging. You obviously can't blame...More

Hi Naptin, thanks for your reply. I would strongly recommend you to visit Dajiuhu, the wetland since you are there now. It is by far the most serene and beautiful place I have ever visited in China.
