According to the legend, Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon had two names. One called Rotten Ship Gorge, because the water of the whole gorge and the Southern Red Flag Canal is from Shenquan Stream and its spring gushes from many rotten ships, but the local people don’t know the place that the rotten ships come from. So it named after the "Rotten Ship Gorge". Another name is called Massive Springs Gorge, because there are numerous springs in both sides of the gorge.
There is a quiet stream in the middle of Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, and there is a path built by the plank by the stream. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon has not only traditional beautiful natural scenery, but also has historical and humanistic landscape of three generations. As "thousands of graves", the ancient battlefield that recorded the fierce battle of Li Zicheng and Wu Sangui, the bandit hole reflected the history and characteristics of the Xiangxi and the Southern Red Flag Canal.

Designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan, it dwarfs America's Grand Canyon Skywalk, which is 21 metres long and 219 metres above ground.But if a stroll in the sky sounds a little tame, you could always brave the world's highest bungee jump, something else it will offer.
