After breakfast, you will be guided to the Bailong Elevator, whose vertical height is up to 326 meters (1,070 feet) and it would take less than 2 minutes to reach the top. The three cabins are all made of transparent glasses. We will take this elevator to Yuanjiajie Scenic Area to admire the grand sight of dozens of independent stone peaks towering into the clouds.

After that, our guide will lead you to Tianzi Mountain Nature Reserve by taking a battery car. Here you can have a chance to enjoy the scenery of cloud sea and peak forests. Then you will be led to Jinbian Stream. The gurgling stream is shaded by dense trees, and flows through valleys and lofty cliffs. Sometimes, you can see mild monkeys on the treetops.

Then we will take a sightseeing train to the Ten-mile Gallery. On both sides of the 5-kilometer long valley are wild flowers and green trees. Seeing from afar, you will be shocked by the rocks shaped like an old man collecting herbs, a peacock showing its tail, and a growling tiger.

Fenghuang Ancient Town
Today we will have a full exploration of the Fenghuang Ancient Town. After breakfast, we will take a boat along Tuojiang River, the mother river of the town. The clean river flows slowly along the city walls and you can see water plants swaying in the gentle waves. In addition, the mist sometimes rises from the quiet green water, making it a fairyland. Then you will be guided to Wanming Pagoda on the north bank of the river. The hexagonal pagoda of around 21 meters (69 feet) high has seven layers. There are copper wind bells hanging at each corner of the eaves. Colored paintings and sculptures are also decorated on the body of the pagoda.

After enjoying the elegant pagoda, we will cruise down to the Rainbow Bridge. Looking out of the window on its second floor, you can have a good view of the green hills, blue water, city walls, red slates, and stilted houses. Besides, you can also see several boats moving quietly through the river.

We will conclude our private Fenghuang tour with Tiaotiao Rock, one of the landmarks of the town. The total length of the rock is about 100 meters (110 yards) with 15 stone piers crossing the Tuojiang River. Standing in the middle of the Tiaotiao Rock, you can definitely take nice shots of the stilted buildings and Rainbow Bridge.

The whole private tour to Zhangjiajie and Fenghuang is over here. Finally, we will drive you back to Zhangjiajie and see you off at the airport. Have a nice trip!

Cable car
Does this tour have cable car ride in Zhangjiajie? Is it suitable for people who cannot walk for long distance?

Answered by Susan | Jan. 08, 2020 17:08

The transportation such as the elevator, train and shuttle bus between each attraction spot in Zhangjiajie Forest Park are included. However, as it is in the mountainous area, there are still many steps to climb. You can stop and rest often during the tour if you can not walk for long distance.

Answered by Beth | Mar. 28, 2019 18:12

There are only three regular trains run to Zhangjiajie from Beijing every day. If you come to Zhangjiajie by train, it will take more than 23 hours on the train. The first train departs at 08:37 am from Beijing and will get in Zhangjiajie railway station at 11:20 am of the next day, and the others are 13:22/12:26+1 and 16:16/16:43+1. Besides, there are also three regular trains back to Beijing every day. If you would like to take a regular train, I kindly suggest you buy soft sleeper for a comfortable riding.

As I know, except for the bus from Zhangjiajie to Biancheng, you may need to charter private vehicle for all the places you are going through. You can take a bus from Zhangjiajie Center Bus Station to Biancheng and there are two buses every day. One leaves at 9:45 am and the other departs at 14:30 with around a 3-hour drive. I kindly suggest you charter a car to travel other cities that you have listed in Hunan Province. Besides, since there is no direct bus from Hongjiang City to Guilin in Guangxi Province, you may reach to Huaihua City first and take high speed train from Huaihua South Railway Station to Guilin West Railway Station or you can also charter a car to Guilin. The distance between Hongjiang and Huaihua is around 50 km.
