Gaoyiling scenic area is an amazing place for walking and hiking and seeing awesome views. The landscape is interbedded red sandstone hills with steep drops into rivers and small lakes surrounding. The views are simply awe inspiring. When walking around here I would recommend a sun umbrella, sun screen and lots of water. You can buy water and other drinks here from the locals. There is a 20RMB charge to enter the hiking trails. When high on some hills take extreme caution near edges as the drop offs are steep and lethal, some are not fenced off. The only downside is the hills have quite a lot of trash so make sure to take yours home with you and be a good tourist. It's also extremely hot here in peak summer so maybe avoid that time of year.
GaoYi Ridge(高椅岭), located in GaoYi Village, Chenzhou, Hunan Province, China, is famous for its stunning red cliffs and brooks with greenery. If lucky enough, you can see some wild goats. There are some steep stairs, but you won't feel tired at all with such amazing views.
Visit hours: 2-3 hours
Best time: 4- 7 PM, when it's not too hot but also can enjoy nice sunset.
* You may be surprised by it's beauty when first arrive, but the most beautiful part is on the peak.
* If you have a drone, highly suggested to bring it so that you can take a whole and fantastic view of GaoYi Ridge, but do watch out and step out the ridge.
* If taking pics, watch out of the steep cliffs.
* Pls bring your own trash to the dustbin.
This year's Spring Festival self-driving tour begins today. We start from Shanxi, passing through Henan-Hubei-Hunan-Guangxi-Guangdong-Hainan. It is a journey from north to south very loooooooooong. The following is the dry goods in Hunan Yinzhou scenic spot.
Dongjiang Scenic Area is a big fjord. Xiaodongjiang is just one of the photographing spots. When you come here, you can take the public bus in the scenic spot to the finish line (a total of five stations, Xiaodongjiang shooting point is the fourth stop). There is a waterfall with a high drop, and there is a floating bridge on the lake below. After playing here, you can switch to boarding the ship. During the driving process, you can pass through the middle of the mountain gorge. I feel that I can be more immersed in the water than standing on the shore. After about half an hour, I will reach the cave. The grotesque stalactites were all formed 325 million years ago. After the tour, I liked a small road from the entrance to the pier. The winding path is quiet, the left side is the mountain, the right side is the fjord, and there are many strange-shaped trees. Wearing a warm-colored dress can be contrasted with the photos here. So come here again, there will be no more foggy Dongjiang.
Next, drive from Dongjiang for 30-40 minutes, and you will arrive at the second net red card punching place: Gaojialing, which is also a place where many people take pictures. I am also seeing such a magnificent Danxia landform for the first time. . . In particular, this is actually an unexplored place, so there is still room for improvement in terms of security protection. So everyone must pay attention to safety, don't take photos too far.
