Located in the northern mountain ranges of Hunan, the remote Zhangjiajie National Forest was known only to the Tujia, Miao, and Bai minority groups for centuries. Today, with its towering karst spires, rich brown earth, and lush forests, Zhangjiajie has become the icon of China’s striking landscapes. Made a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1992, the park is a dramatic landscape of deep, forested canyons and enormous, isolated limestone peaks, each growing their own miniature ecosystems akin to bonsai forests. Explore all it has to offer over this long weekend trip.

As one of the most important ancient capitals in China, Xian with a long and rich history, makes for an ideal weekend trip. Visit the Terracotta Warriors, ride a bike on the Ancient City Wall, experience authentic Xi'an food in the Muslim Quarter and discover Guanzhong culture in Yuanjiacun Village. And for the brave, tack on a trip to Shanxi’s scenic and scared Huashan mountain, home to an infamous cliffside plank path (pictured above). Just 30 centimeters wide, the rickety-looking walkway made of wooden boards secured to the mountainside is often referred to as one of the “world’s most dangerous hikes.”
