In Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, the plunging waterfalls, the dense trees, the fresh air, and the mist on the stream make you feel like you are in an otherworldly sort of place. A spring meanders in the canyon, along which are trails built with planks. On the way, you can see the longest and highest glass bridge in the world as well as the karst landform in the north temperate zone. You have to walk for over two hours to visit the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, so remember to wear sports shoes and bring some food. You are recommended to start at the top of the canyon and move downhill, the following attractions coming into view successively.

Zhangjiajie is China's most unmissable natural wonder, and the Grand Canyon is one of its centerpieces. Enter a mystical world of karst mountains and green forest now world famous as the 'Avatar Mountains', where the world’s longest glass bridge perches precariously between two peaks and hovers above misty turquoise streams and plunging waterfalls. There’s so much to explore here, so take your time as you venture to each hidden feature. Start your adventure by hopping on the free shuttle service from the mountain foot to the mountain peak.
The adventure will reach its climax with its most breathtaking feature - the Glass Bridge. This transparent walkway is 430m in length, suspended between two sides of the Canyon and giving spectacular views of lush greenery, rugged cliffs, flowing waterfalls, and the emerald river below. Separated from thin air by 99 sheets of glass 600m above ground is an exhilarating experience you'll never forget!
Butterfly Spring Waterfall
The Grand Canyon scenic area is full of special features waiting to be uncovered. Find the
Butterfly Spring Waterfall, a flowing spring down a cliff of lush, green plants. As the water flows, it forms pearl-like crystal droplets on the plants, a beautiful sight that gave the cliff its name: ‘Pearl Wall’. Relax at the waterfall and you may see butterflies dance, a truly magical sight.
A Strip of Sky & Sky Ladder Plank Road
Venture into the precarious ‘Strip of Sky’ valley – only one person can slip through at a time! Over 700m long with a drop of 300m, you can pass through to find the Sky Ladder Plank Road. Climb up the steep, narrow steps and feel as though you’re climbing a ladder to the heavens.
