I booked my tickets to the Grand Canyon and glass bridge a day in advance. I used a travel agent on Wechat and the combined ticket cost 219rmb. I arrived at around 8.45am and the site was already starting to get busy. It opens at 8am and I would suggest arriving as early as possible!
I started with the glass bridge, it was brilliant to walk over and fantastic for photo opportunities. On a sunny day however it’s extremely hot and I recommend sun glasses. After the glass bridge I zip lined down (50rmb) and got a slide (50rmb) the rest of the way to the bottom of the mountain. It was incredible fun and worth every penny! I then took a small boat journey (20rmb) to the walking trial through the Grand Canyon. This was very scenic and peaceful. I passed waterfalls, forests and a cave. You are then put onto another boat that takes you to the exit.
The visit was exciting and definitely something you should do if ever in Zhangjiajie. I’ve attached a price list of other optional activities you can do such as bungee jumping. With taxis it can be an expensive day out, but one to remember.

The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon is not in the Wulingyuan Scenic Area. It takes about 30 minutes to drive from Xibu Street.
Drive to the entrance of the scenic spot, the car climbs the mountain all the way. The Grand Canyon is located at the bottom of the valley. At this time, how many mountains have climbed, and it is necessary to walk down on foot. The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon is a newly developed scenic spot. There are not many tourists, but this scenic spot is very famous among Korean tourists. In front of the door, these Korean tourists are dressed in colorful costumes.
The entrance to the scenic spot is on the hill. After entering the scenic spot, you must go through the 1680 steps to the bottom of the valley. The steps were built along the first line of the sky. There were several steep slopes. After walking to the bottom of the valley, there was already a sweat, and the legs began to listen.
Then there are two sections of slides, the first section of the slide is slower and the second section is very fast. Put on the protective mat and put on the gloves, the whole person can slide down to the bottom of the mountain from the slide. Just use the friction of both feet and hands to control the speed of the taxi. The first time I played the slide was very exciting, and the group members were still unfinished. The scenery of the
Grand Canyon will never let you down. After entering the bottom of the valley, it is a hiking route. The whole journey takes about 2 hours, and all kinds of beautiful scenery can be seen. Here you only need to relax and quietly observe the various natural wonders around you. There are also several waterfalls in the scenic area, either heated or quiet.
Along the built walkway, there is no winding road in the middle. The water flowing down the waterfall merges into a small stream and gathers into a lake until the exit.
