We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Zhangjiajie Tour

Zhangjiajie is located in the northwest of Hunan Province. The city of Zhangjiajie has two major administrative districts - Yongding District ( downtown area ) and Wulingyuan District (Wulingyuan Scenic Area). Yongding District and Wuling District are approx.30km apart. 

Wulingyuan Scenic Area was listed as UNESCO World Heritage in 1992. But this world heritage site is popularly known as "Zhangjiajie Scenic Area" rather than "Wulingyuan" mainly because Wulingyuan Scenic Area is under the administration of Zhangjiajie City plus the same name Zhangjiajie National Forest Park within Wulingyuan Scenic Area.

Wulingyuan Scenic Area ( or Zhangjiajie Scenic Area) includes four main areas: Zhangjiajie National Forest ParkTianzi Mountain Nature Reserve, Yangjiajie Nature Reserve and, Suoxi Valley Natural Resource Reserve(including Baofeng Lake and Yellow Dragon Cave). The American film - Avatar depicted "Hallelujah Mountain" by taking the real view of “South Pillar of the Heaven", a famous attraction in Wulingyuan Scenic Area. 

The city of Zhangjiajie (Yongding District) is well known for its Tianmen Mountain. A cable car was designed and built by the French company Poma starting from Zhangjiajie railway station to the top of the mountain. Tianmen Mountain Cableway is claimed as one of  the "longest passenger cableway of high mountains in the world", with a total length of 7,455 metres and ascent of 1,279 metres.
