I have discussed the towering mountain pinnacles of Zhangjiajie National Park previously, which you can see and read about here at this link. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a spectacular place to visit.
Underneath the mountains of Zhangjiajie is an extensive cave system, with many miles of caves like the Yellow Dragon Cave in today's highlighted picture. The caves were created over thousands of years by seeping water moving and depositing minerals into beautiful rock formations. We were told the immense cave system stretches for 15 km (about 10 miles) in total, although currently a 3 km (2 mi) section is open to visitors.
Our trip also took us to a picturesque mountain village known as 'Phoenix Town", with a river of mountain water winding its way through the heart of the town. And, of course, when visiting China no trip is complete without a local feast and sweet desert!
