Zhangjiajie

A beautiful setting in a movie has been based on an astounding place in china. This place is called Zhangjiajie, and If you have ever seen the movie avatar and you remember the Hallelujah Mountains this is what it was based off of. There are giant pillars in the park made of Limestone. This park has a grand total of around 3100 pillars. Some of the largest pillars in the park are about 800 meters tall. China’s highest elevator is at this park it takes you up to a peak about 326 meters tall the elevator is glass so you can take in the breathtaking view. The elevator is called the Bailong elevator. There are all sorts of cable cars that can bring you to different summits for different views. There are also five entrances to the park so the park is very accessible. I would recommend the park at sunset because the view of the sunset is probably unbeatable.

jiuzhaigou

What is the prettiest place you have been to? Because the Jiuzhaigou national park is sure to be it. Other people think just the same that this place has earned the nickname fairyland, with all of its waterfalls, the 108 turquoise lakes that are so clear you can see the bottom of most all of the lakes, also the snow covered mountains earn this place a nickname of this caliber. Also, this place has a large assortment of wildlife, it is home to the endangered giant panda. It also has 140 different species of birds. There is an animal called the Dukes of Bedford vole that is only found in three locations and this is one of them. This park is made up of three different valleys and lies on a major fault line. What makes the lakes so clear is a high concentrate of calcium carbonate. Also, in the fall the trees turn orange yellow and brown creating an amazing display of scenery. This place truly is spectacular.

Hanging Monastery

Around the world there are breathtaking structures but, in china there is a place called the hanging monastery built on a cliff. This building is not just sitting down at the bottom of the cliff this sits 75 meters high. There are also 40 rooms! It is not a modern structure either it was built about 1500 years ago and still stays there. It is not just a cool place to be there are 78 beautiful statues and carvings inside the structure. If you are wondering how this structure was built the people who built it drilled holes in the cliffside, then they put poles in the holes to support the structure. This place has had many extensions and repairs so don’t worry about falling. Overall it is a great tourist attraction that I suggest you visit.

The Great Wall of China

What more to say than the great wall of china the name fits perfectly. The great wall of china is china’s main tourist attraction bringing around 10 million people to visit it a year. The wall is so big that with a little bit of aid you can see it from space. The great wall of china’s nickname is the longest cemetery in the world because, over 1 million people died building the wall and were buried inside. The great wall of china is so gargantuan that in some areas you can drive a car on the bridge safely. If you ever want a good workout this is a good place being 5500 miles long. Although, there are many tourists on the great wall at most all times so space is fairly limited. In china there was a period called the cultural revolution were people took bricks from the great wall of china to build houses. To keep the bricks together they used glutinous rice flour to stick the bricks together. If you ever want to go to an amazing place that has great views and astonishing structures china is the place to go.
