Shennongjia is a beautiful national park, with its attractions spread out over multiple scenic areas and villages. The main key town is Muyu, which we took a bus from 9am at Shiyan to get there 6.5 hours later at 3.30pm. Accommodations are plentiful in winter (off-peak period). There are ski resorts in the area that are popular among couples during... More

Shennongjia National Nature Reserve is by far the best place in China to see Golden Snub-nosed Monkeys and Giant Salamanders, along with some terrific scenery and very well-maintained nature trails. It contains a nice collection of museums, including one that is devoted to the Yeren, China's version of the yeti or "abominable snowman". As in most of China, bird life... More

Shennongjia is clearly a very nice natural park but at least on our side we met 3 issues: too numerous people during national holidays, weather was cloudy and all sites (at least main ones) have stairs, stairs and stairs... and last point when you are with young children you can forget to climb 3000 steps! No roads for trecking in... More

Stayed there for some days. The trip from town to the top of the mountain is a must-see. Especially the valley and the view from the top on a clear day offers fantastic views.

The main drawback of this park is the difficulty to get to it. We needed to boat for 3 hours from Yichang then took the bus forever. Unfortunately the weather was terrible. It rained all the time and it was fogging. You obviously can't blame the park for this but it sure took away from the experience. We don't have... More

There are a lot of stories about this place being original and some wild men were spotted. I am a huge fun of original stuff and want to hike there to feel the original forests there. The forest zone is quite far from the city, and the only way to get into the forest is by car (an airport is... More
