Jishou is located in the hinterland of the Wuling Mountains. It is the capital of the Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture and a county-level city in Hunan Province. The city has a variety of museums and attractions that reflect the history and culture of the Miao people. The famous scenic spots include Dehang, Qianzhou Ancient City, and the Aizhai Extra Large Suspension Bridge. There are three things that you have to see when visiting Jishou. The first is the daily life of the Miao ethnic group, the second is the high gorge waterfalls, and the third is the underground karst caves.
The Aizhai Bridge is located in the Azhai Town of Xiangxi, Hunan Province. The Aizhai Bridge Scenic Area is composed of the Aizhai Bridge, the Jidou Village and the Tiantiantai. The Aizhai Bridge spans the Azhai Grand Canyon, and the Deyi River passes through the valley bottom. The bridge deck design elevation and the ground height difference are up to 100 meters. The bridge type scheme is a steel truss stiffening beam single-span suspension bridge, which adopts a structural design scheme in which the tower and the beam are completely separated. Here you can feel the shock of the vast bridge project and appreciate the beautiful pastoral scenery of Aizhai Town.
The Qianzhou Ancient City is located at the bank of Wanrong River in the city of Jishou, the capital of Xiangxi Autonomous Prefecture, Hunan Province. Since ancient times, the old city of Qianhou has been known as the Twin Cities on the Great Wall of the South together with Fenghuang Ancient City. There is a 10-mile ancient street in the city, 10-mile river in the city, and 10-mile walls outside the city. It was an important commercial port in the Qin and Han dynasties. It was also an important military command center on the South China Great Wall Anti-drainage Line during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.
The Dehang Canyon is located on the road to the Zhangjiajie-Phoenix line. It is different from the masculine gas of Zhangjiajie, which belongs to the quartz sandstone landform. The Dehang Canyon, which belongs to the limestone karst gorge, has a graceful appearance. Along the secluded canyon, you can climb to the highest point in the canyon, the Heavenly Desk, to see the surrounding stalagmites, and recall the scenes of Qu Yuan's grief. Climbing a climbing plate Gufeng on the peak overlooking Deyi Miao Village, visiting the quicksand waterfall with great drop, can not help but open up.
Cliff Hanging Glass Road is on the edge of the Dehang Canyon and links the Paifang Parking Lot and Aizhai Bridge. It is a walkway suspended at great height with a sightseeing platform. The modern design reflects key elements of the Miao nationality culture such as "butterfly" and "ribbon." Visitors can experience the stimulating view of the glass road while having their limits tested.
