Located in eastern part of the park, Golden Whip Stream was named after Golden Whip Rock. Merged with Pipa Stream, Golden Whip Stream flows into Suoxi Stream. It covers a flowing of 7.5 km along which you can have a hiking.Golden Whip Stream (Jinbian Stream) is famous for its pristine water, its verdant mountains, its steep cliffs and its serene valley. As a veritable “paradise” for plants, its pathways are adorned by an abundance of flowers, trees, and grasses. It is also a very deep and quiet winding stream where can be seen many green hills and colorful flora and the song of birds can be heard. The 7 kilometer long stream is one of the most charming features of the scenery of Zhangjiajie. It has been called “The Most Beautiful Valley in the World.”

The main spots
● Mother and Chlid Peak: In the tranquil and deep vally lies a medium-size peak, which takes on the form of a mother tenderly embracing her slumbering child. We can even imagine the happy smiles on her face. Who is to say that stone feels no emotion, but is only cold and indifferent? Look carefully! This stone figure seems to be as real as a flesh and blood mother, one so tender and affectionate. Truly, "to show filial piety to one's parents takes precedence over any other good deed." Under no cricumstances must we"marry a wife while forgetting mother".

● Golden Whip Rock: Rising more than 300 meters from the vally, this massive crag ,with its sharp edges and clearly defined joints, looks as if it is a long whip stabbing the earth and rising high into the clouds at the same time. Bathed in the glow of the setting sun, this impressive peak sparkles and seems to be transformed into a golden whip, hence the name,Golden Whip Rock.

From the geological standpoint, this rock is even more fascinating. According to scientific research, Golden Whip Rock is the highest and most regular column-like rockin the world. Druing the Devotion Period, 380 million years ago, the earth crust of this region sunk and became a part of the ocean. The continuously inflowing water carried much soft material down, deposited, pressed, and cemented, which developed into sandstone layer with the silicate material in the sea water. During the Permian Period, that is 285 miilion  years ago, the sandstone layer rose up as the crust up-heaved, but there are still a calcium layer of earth covered the sandstone. Druing the Triassic Period, 200 million years ago, because of the violate epeirogentic movement in the area, the earth crust mounted up steadily and finally came out. For the constant effect of water,wind, and gravity,the sandstone layer developed into all these imposing peaks and rocks, and finally presents us the miraculous natural scenery. Without and doubt,Golden Whip Rock is the masterpiece of magic nature.

●Zicao Tarn: the name originated from the abrasive straw-paper tarn and is derived from the notion that the local mountaineers in the Qing Dynasty rinsed their paper in the pond. this body of water is approximately 5 meters long, 4 meters wide and 2 meters in depth. The small bridge over Zicao Tarn is a solid, massive rock, which is more than 3 meters long, over 1 meter wide, about 30 centimeters thick and weights many tons. How was it possible for common folk to put it in the place without the aid of modern machinery? you just guess it in such a wonderful vally.
