Here you can enjoy the scenery of all Karst terrain of the North Temperate Zone!

According to the legend, Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon had two names. One called Rotten Ship Gorge, because the water of the whole gorge and the Southern Red Flag Canal is from Shenquan Stream and its spring gushes from many rotten ships, but the local people don’t know the place that the rotten ships come from. So it named after the “Rotten Ship Gorge”. Another name is called Massive Springs Gorge, because there are numerous springs in both sides of the gorge.

There is a quiet stream in the middle of Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, and there is a path built by the plank by the stream. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon has not only traditional beautiful natural scenery, but also has historical and humanistic landscape of three generations. As “Thousands of graves”, the ancient battlefield that recorded the fierce battle of Li Zicheng and Wu Sangui, the bandit hole reflected the history and characteristics of the Xiangxi and the Southern Red Flag Canal.

The main attractions: One-Line-Sky, Family Portrait, The millennial Ancient Rattan, Chuangwang Pavilion, the Southern Red Flag Canal, Zhuaxian Spring, Rotten Ship Rock, The Bandit Hole and so on.
