Wulingyuan Scenic Area
About this place
Wulingyuan Scenic Area spreads out among Wulingyuan mountains in Zhangjiajie City, southwest of Hunan Province. It is about 400 kilometers (248.56miles) away from Changsha, the provincial capital. The whole area includes four parts: Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Yangjiajie Scenic Spot, Suoxi Valley and Mount Tianzi Nature Reserves with an area of 500 square kilometers (193 square miles). Owing to the neighboring plateau southwest of it and Dongting Lake to the east, the second biggest fresh water lake of China, Wulingyuan Scenic Area developed by the interaction of land elevation and depression and the cutting force of flowing water. It presents a unique landscape of high mountains, grotesque peaks, beautiful waters, deep gorges, marvelous caves and exuberant forest.
For many years Wulingyuan was unknown because it was hidden in the hinterland of the province. It was only in 1979 that Mr. Wu Guanzhong, a famous Chinese painter, discovered this magic land. In 1992, UNESCO added Wulingyuan to the World Heritage List.
