Mystical Magical Zhangjiajie in NW Hunan Province, China

Zhangjiajie, a northwest Hunan city 400 km from Changsha, is the site of the national Wulingyuan scenic resort, the first in China to be endorsed by UNESCO as a world natural heritage. The resort covers more than 500 square km and consists of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park and two nature reserves-Suoxi Gully and Tianzi Mountain. With an unmatched sandy quartzite and karst landform, the resort is a sublime configuration of mountains, rivers, wood and caves.

Zhangjiajie is a beautiful place and well worth a visit. I am afraid my photos don't do it justice. The view, with low-hanging clouds nestled among the peaks and with a light dusting of snow in winter will take one's breath away. I hope that my views from our 2 days in Wulingyuan park will inspire you to see more of one of China's most unique spots.
