Stop 12 - Zhangjiajie National Park

Stop number 12 was Zhangjiajie National Park, which apparently inspired the film Avatar. Our guesthouse was very remote and surrounded by beautiful mountains. We spent two days in the national park itself riding cable cars, taking photos at crowded but brilliant viewpoints and hiking down deserted paths with spectacular scenery.

There were lots of monkeys in the park which were suspiciously unafraid of people and had an evil look in their eye.

This was one of the most crazy and otherworldly places either of us have ever been to and to top off all of the beautiful views, our room was - by a very long way - the most luxurious place we have stayed so far!
