Most of the buildings in Zhangjiajie Tujia Folk Custom Park are constructed of wood and stone, with such characteristics as carved girder, painted columns and upturned eaves. The exquisite workmanship and ingenious construction have been greatly acclaimed by tourists, who have also expressed much admiration of the splendid culture and magnificent folk customs displayed in the park.

Morning: Yellow Dragon Cave is the longest cave in Asia; it is an incomparable realm of gigantic subterranean chambers, fantastic cave formations, and extraordinary features. Today, many of the wonders of Yellow Dragon Cave are well known, yet the experience of exploring its chambers is every bit as exciting. The cave remained mystic to local villagers before the first caving adventure took place in 1982; they believed it was the holy home for the yellow dragon and spirits. Now the routes are well paved and well lighted. Sturdy walking shoes, flashlights, and water are required when you explore the cave.
Afternoon: In the afternoon, discover Baofeng Lake, Embraced by continuous mountains, the artificial Baofeng Lake (Treasure-Peak Lake) was created in the 1970s people as people filled the small faults of the lake with concrete to store water and bring the water level up.
