At present, there is no high speed train to Zhangjiajie. Tourists who want to visit Zhangjiajie by bullet train have to make a transfer via Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, making Changsha a popular gate city to Zhangjiajie. Aside from its magnificent role of the gate city, Changsha is also a famous tourist city itself. If you are curious of China’s great leader Chairman Mao, you can pay a visit to Orange Island Park in Changsha to learn more about his story and get close to his huge statue there. In Changsha, you can also find a time-honored academic school - Yuelu Academy. Yuelu Academy is one of the four major academies in ancient China (the other three academies are Bailudong Academy on Lushan Mountain of Jiangxi Province, Yingtianfu Academy in Shangqiu of Henan Province and Songyang Academy in Kaifeng of Henan Province). If you have plans to make a transfer via Changsha to Zhangjiajie too, leaving yourself one day to explore these attractions in Changsha is also a good choice.
