Situated in the midst of the semitropical climate zone, Zhangjiajie has a moderate climate, lots of sunshine and enough rainfall to keep the vegetation gloriously green. Zhangjiajie is called a “city of spring” due to its comfortable year-round temperatures, that hover around 60°F (16°C). Expect fog and heavy rain in late June and early July. While the winters get heavy snowfall, the park remains open. Although April and October are the best times to visit, Zhangjiajie provides many rewards all year-round.
