Avatar Mountain-the descent.

Set our alarms for 6am to wake up to see the sunrise, it was really misty so there was no sunrise to be seen.
Paid for our bags to be sent down to the bus station and set off down the mountain.




Found some Avatars.


Tried to get in as many view points as possible today.







We walked across the world’s natural bridge.












Picked up by a bus to go to the Bailing Elevator.













I don’t need to say that these views are spectacular! 
Hanging over the edge to try and get shots without dropping my phone was entertaining.






There was so much to see and explore and so little time! 










Will rock climbing over the green algae covered rocks.






The monkeys started closing in on Will…






Found the Chinese lady we bumped into yesterday at the monastery, she kept talking really fast Chinese, I was trying to practice mine, it just all ended in giggles! 


By this point my feet were starting to give up…


Will could probably walk for days, and if my feet and legs had been willing, I would have too.


We made it back to the entrance and took the bumpy bus back to the town and attempted to recover our bags, we had been given no receipt, were just told to take photos of the tags, the information desk told us where they thought we should go, in the end we asked them to take us as neither of us were willing to wander around not having a clue where we were supposed to be going. Even the girl from the information desk didn’t know, but we found them eventually, and definitely would not have found it by ourselves.

Had some after-mountain beef noodles.


A short flight from Zhangjiajie to a 10 hour layover in Xi’an airport.
Will got some supplies in for our airport party.


We settled onto our free bed for the night, and attempted to get some sleep. Chinese men starting conversations loudly in the night and then my water bottle leaking all over my bag woke me, but not the worst nights sleep I’ve ever had!
