Canyon
The Enshi Grand Canyon surrounds a section of the Qing River and is full of narrows, rocky outcroppings, and near-vertical canyon walls. Its main attractions include the narrow cliff, the cliff corridor, and the “incense stick.” At the Yunlong River seam, you can descend the stairs along the vertical cliff face deep into the gorge until you are able to look upward and see the sky high above you like an azure band. The cliff corridor is a walkway along the cliff face. Nothing is beneath your feet but empty space as you walk along this vertical cliff. Feel the excitement of seeing the mountains stretch off into the distance with the countryside below your feet.
