He is a Gentleman!! Zhangjiajie Hiking Trip
It's exciting, if you like Challenging Great mountains! Instead of
taking the shuttle to go around this giant labyrinth-like national park, i used my legs mostly. Zhangjiajie is a (gentle?)man, while Fenghuang(an ancient county 4 h bus ride away)and Guilin(in Guangxi Province CN) are more of femininity. Being also a famous scenic place, he definitly has locals more Chun Pu(simple and honest ) than that of Guilin. Guilin has been spoiled bad, with a worsening sense of materialism and
vanity(tong xiu wei & xu rong). ;-)
However, I have a potential worry that, as the tourism industry goes in
full bloom, Zhangjiajie will follow the same route. Out of a selfish
side of myself, I kind of wish somewhere in my heart that this tertiary industry will not expand.. It hurts a lot to see that innocent smile fading away from their pretty face.. .
Zhangjiajie has sceneries kind of like this everywhere, Generally, because of the crustal stress.
Part of the reason why I want to go to Zhangjiajie is their magnificent mountains which feel like standing upright between heaven and earth.
Hunan province where Zhangjiajie is located, is home to quite a number of famous men of prowess, like Helong born in Zhangjiajie is the supreme commander of the last century, the very well-known politician Mao.
The core of the trip is the feeling of being in here, very broad, fresh . And if you really hike around, you will be rewarded like me, in the end by the exercising satisfaction.
Pictures here depend a lot on the weather. The acutual scenes are far beyond the pictures' expression, I am sure.
