Golden Whip Stream

Golden Whip Stream (Jinbian Stream),located in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, is famous for its pristine water.  Named after the 380-meter high Golden Whip Rock, the Golden Whip Stream runs from Laomo Bay to Shui Rao Si Men(water-surrounded gates) then to Suoxi River, it finally joins Lishui River, one of the four longest rivers in Hunan Province. 

Hiking along the Golden Whip Stream

Although it is over 7 km, the Golden Whip Stream is the best place for hiking. Golden Whip Stream flows between steep grotesque peaks and luxuriant trees. Here, the meandering streams, the crystal-clear waterfalls, exotic plants and rare animals co-exist and constitute the extraordinarily beautiful, tranquil and natural ecological environment. No wonder it is called "the most beautiful valley in the world" and "the most poetic stream". It usually takes 3 hours trekking if you start from the entrance gate of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park to the site of Shuiraosimen, nearby Bailong Elevator Station.
