Wulingyuan Scenic and Historic Interest Area, Zhangjiajie, China

The Zhangjaijie National Forest Park is the first state-level forest park in China. The park is a real treasure house. The Lobster Flower (Long Xia Flower), a sort of flower that can change color five times in a day, is unique in the park. The views in this area include the Golden Whip Stream, Huangshi Fort and Yuanjiajie. The Golden Whip Stream is a poetic stream, with crystal clear water running quietly between strangely-shaped peaks. The Huangshi Fort and Yuanjiajie are both classic spots that can not be missed in the park.

As the center of the scenic spots, Suoxiyu Natural Resource Reserve is the largest among the four areas of the park. This area includes the Ten-mile Gallery (Gan Xi Gou), where vivid pictures formed by its peaks are rather impressive. The West Sea is amazing which is also called the sea of stone forests. Bao Feng Lake is one of the excellent places where to gain an understanding of the local customs of West Hunan Province.
