Self-guided Tour in Zhangjiajie

Hi. I will be visiting Zhangjiajie somewhere in Mid December 2013. I will arrive at Changsha by train from Shenzhen, thereafter will proceed to Zhangjiajie areas. Is it possible to visit Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Wulingyuan Scenic Area and Tianmen Mountain without taking a guide? I can speak and read Chinese and I will be travelling with my spouse. I plan to spend 3 to 4 days there. Is it a good choice to stay at Wulingyuan ? I appreciate your recommendation on choice of hotels. Thank you.

yes, it is possible especially with bilingual.

spend 2-3 days at ZJJ National Park while another day at ZJJ city for Tianmenshan day trip.

There are a lot of hotels to choose from : high end Pullman hotel, Qinghe Jinjiang Hotel, Medium range Emperor hotel, Tuniu hostel, Zhuanjiajun Hotel. All these hotels are close to the entrance of ZJJ national park. Further down the road is Quanshanyue Gongguan.

Oh definitely all the trails are well laid out stone paths. However, i can say that if you hike from the valley floor and go up to the peaks these are very strenuous stair climbing. I did two consecutive days of hiking and my legs were very tired. the smart people were riding the bus to the tops and hiking down.
