Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
The oldest and largest bamboo forest in China, Shu'nan Bamboo Forest spreads over 120 sq km (46 sq m) of mountains and valleys. To get around, you can rent a car and a driver--the only transport available inside the park. Hike along streams, waterfalls, and lakes, and duck inside caves. On a cable car ride, absorb the tranquility of the rippling sea of bamboo and spot the statues and relics in the cliff side. Admire views from the hilltops, and then plunge into the woods by following the "bamboo corridor." Treat your body to the fresh forest air and discover why they filmed "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" here.
