About Zhangjiajie National Forest Park

Located in northwestern Hunan province, central China, the Zhangjiajie City is home to China's first forest park - Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. In 2004, Zhangjiajie Park was listed as a UNESCO Global Geopark.

There are many famous scenic spots in Zhangjiajie, including the Baofeng Lake, the Huanglong Cave (Asia's largest cave), and many beautiful waterfalls and brooks. But the most attractive scene is the mysterious groups of mountains covered with dense, primeval forests.

There are 243 lofty pillar-peaks, with each over 1,000 meters high, often laced in mist and clouds. Standing together, the peaks look like soldiers in an enormous battle array.

Home to 23 species of rare animals and over 3,000 species of plants, the park can be seen as a giant botanic showcase and a grand oxygen bar.
