Full description
Your Zhangjiajie tour guide will hold your name board and pick you up in your hotel lobby at 08:30, and will then drive roughly 2.5 hours and go to the ancient village of Shiyanping, about 48 kilometers away from Zhangjiajie city. Located in the southeast of Zhangjiajie, Shiyanping village is a picturesque old village, with more than 90 per cent of intact vegetation and forest. At the foot of the mountain, there about 180 stilted buildings built by the Tujia ethnic group. This ancient architectural complex, dating back to Qing dynasty, became a key cultural relic unit under state protections in 2015. It was placed in the first batch of 50 traditional villages to be protected by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage. Lunch will be provided in the ancient village. This is a great place to relax - even the local people like to go there and enjoy a weekend. After walking around the village, you can spend some time to visit the local family, and fish in the pure water stream or picnic. Later, your tour guide and driver will take you back to your hotel.
