China - Hunan (Chapter)
This is the Húnán chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
Communist Party cadres might wax lyrical about the sacred standing of Húnán in the annals of Chinese history, being as it is the birthplace of Mao Zedong, but it is Húnán’s dramatic scenery that is the real draw.
- hike among the otherworldly peaks of Zhāngjiājiè, one of China’s most spectacular national parks
- settle in at a riverside guesthouse in ancient Fènghuáng
- sample authentic, chilli-laden xiāng cài (Húnán cuisine) in food-loving Chángshā
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Chángshā, Sháoshān, Héng Shān, Zhāngjiājiè, Fènghuáng, and Hóngjiāng Old Town.
