Truong Gia Gioi National Nature Reserve

One of the famous tourist attractions in Phoenix Ancient Town that HoaBinhTourist would like to introduce to you is Truong Gia Gioi. This place is located in the northwest of Ho Nam province, China.

In particular, the terrain here is quite unique, between the rising area of the highlands of Van Nam and Quy Chau provinces and the low lying area of Dong Dinh Lake. This has contributed to creating a beautiful fairyland, from mountains and rivers to poetic valleys and wild primeval forests.

Besides, this place is also known as “Pandora on earth” with majestic sandstone forest, about 20 minutes drive from the central area of Zhangjiajie. This is a natural park, because there are more than 3,000 columns and cliffs, with columns 800m high. Between the rock pillars are caves and ravines, streams, native trees, inhabited by many species of temperate climate flora and fauna.

Tianmen Mountain Heaven Gate

Tianmen Mountain, one of the most beautiful and special mountains in Truong Gia Gioi. To reach the top of the mountain to visit and pray, visitors have to go all the way 11 km long winding around the mountain.

This road is quite steep, increasing in height from 200 m up to 1,300 m with 99 zigzag turns. However, the cable car system helps visitors quickly get closer to Heaven’s Gate.

At the foot of the mountain, only half of the journey is reached, to reach Heaven Gate, visitors have to climb 999 stone steps, vertical, divided into 3 lanes, with handrails, so it is also less dangerous and tiring.

Although the road is arduous, as soon as you reach the top of this tourist destination in Phoenix Ancient Town, a whole scene like in the Buddha realm appears before your eyes, making everyone feel satisfied.

Northern Gate Ancient Citadel

The North Gate Ancient Citadel, also known as the “Northern Tower”, is located on the north side of the Phoenix Ancient Town. This place was built during the Ming Dynasty, and is one of the cultural heritage recognized by the state.

This tower is a long-standing work associated with the historical ups and downs of Phoenix Ancient Town and the spiritual life of the people here.

Today, the tower is still very well restored and preserved, showing its importance for preserving ancient Chinese cultural values.

Hong Kieu Bridge

Hong Kieu Bridge was built in the late Minh – early Thanh dynasties (more than 300 years apart), mainly with wood and stone materials. This is also a famous place in Phoenix Ancient Town.

The bridge was built with ancient architecture, consisting of two floors: the first floor is mainly used for traveling between the two banks; The upper floor was built for the purpose of visiting and worshiping.

The unique feature is that next to the main bridge connecting the two sides of the river with four stone pillars, visitors can go on a smaller stone bridge directly leading to the second floor of the Floor. It is the two stone bridges stacked on top of each other that create a unique feature in the architecture of Lau Phong Thuy Hong Kieu.
