Zhangjiajie Park (place) (1 of 5)

This 243-squaremile (391-sq-km) scenic preserve is a karst landscape of enormous beauty, with rocky pinnacles rising from a coverlet of dense sub-tropical vegetation. Wulingyuan covers three natural reserves Zhangjiajie, Tianzi Shan, and Suoxi Yu and contains well over 500 species of tree, including the dawn redwood, which was believed to be extinct until it was re-identified in 1948. It is also a haven for fauna, including giant salamanders, rhesus monkeys, and a wide variety of birds. The park is often cloaked in fog, adding atmosphere but obscuring most views.
