The place, ZhangJiaJie, is now getting attention for tourism from the world. The number of visitors is in increasing trend every year. In my guess by staying there a week, over 95 percent of travelers are Korean. Korean travellers hit the record every year.
Spectacular panorama is available in most of places around this area and is accessible by convenient transportation systems of bus routes and cableways altogether. The cableways give travelers a chance to experience fascinating view seen in the middle of free space.
The Chinese government designated this area as a National Geopark with a big support from central and regional government. UNESCO also confirmed exceptional and universal value of this site as a scenic and historic interest area on the world heritage list. Exploring new chances for travel as well as protecting it from damages coexists toward tourism promotion and environmental protection. This area is, allegedly, designated as a venue for rafting and related events of 2008 Olympic Games. In other words, youngsters may consider this spot as a center of extreme sports in China. Related facilities are already available and will be usable in the future with appropriate amenities. Travel destinations in or nearby ZhangJiaJie include,
