Summary:

In a country of unimaginably spectacular and beautiful scenery, it comes as no surprise to locals that the views that greet them every day are a source of fascination and wonder for visitors from other countries. There is such a place, one of the "3000 grotesque mountains" of the Yuanjiajie attractions in Zhangjiajie, a mountain known as Pillar of South Heaven or Qiankun Pillar, which in Chinese, means a pillar standing between heaven and earth. Reaching up 1,074 meters, the mountain is topped with greenery and has unique geometrical erosions on its sides. Bring your camera. The reality is even more spectacular than the imagination can conceive. A picture of the mountains, as beautiful as the image is, can not exemplify the feeling of freshness, the subtle scents of nature; and neither does it capture the friendliness and hospitality that awaits you here. Capture that in your travel photos and you can begin to tell your friends what a fabulous experience this tour represents.
