    "Wonderfully peaceful location! Went on a weekend and still very few people. The park is a grassland so make sure you bring sunscreen as you’re exposed most of the time you’re walking around. It’s the perfect place for couples or groups that like both tourist traps and nature. Shooting archery in Hua Milan’s stomping grounds was pretty special and just walking around the fields and escaping the city was very relaxing. I wish I’d had time to ride the horses."

    641 Reviews
    218.2km from downtown
    "From Zhongxiang's self-driving past, there are mountain roads along the way, especially difficult to walk. It is recommended to report directly to the group. There is a discount for online booking for scenic spots one day in advance. The cave is still relatively cool, a bit damp, mud is stained on the skirt and legs everywhere. The time to and from the mountain road is longer than the time to play. I feel that I will not go again, mainly because the road is too inconvenient, it is all curves."

    "It belongs to the geological park, so it is mainly the mountain scenery and geological scenery. In addition, a long glass plank road and glass bridge are the main features on the mountain. You need to climb many ladders. Generally, you need to continue to walk the ladder to climb up, and you can also walk the stairs down. The "sky land" in the package is relatively pitted. The middle of the two pull-lock bridges is a mirror, which is not good-looking. The sky eye of the cliff is charged separately."
    Highlights: Located where Hunan, Hubei, and Chongqing meet, the Glass Bridge Scenic Area of Shiniuzhai has historically been an important strategic area.
