A breathtaking sea of clouds appeared in Wulingyuan Core Scenic Area after a autumn rain before dawn on August 28, the second day of the normal opening of the scenic area.

At six o 'clock on the morning, the sun rose slowly in the east, spilling its rays over the mountains, shining on the white cotton-like sea of clouds. Views from a drone show the sea of clouds stretches across the sky with the surging air currents, sometimes embracing the peaks and forests, and sometimes lingering in the mountains and valleys.

Against the thick clouds, the maroon quartz sandstone peaks, the emerald green pine trees, together with the azure blue sky, formed a colorful refreshing landscape painting.

On the top of the mountain stands the majestic Huangshizhai pavilion. Below is also surging clouds around peaks, like a mirage. When a breeze blows, the floating clouds and mist change constantly, looking like a fairyland.

While there were not many tourists, local photographers and guides went there to record the rare and magnificent scenery of the sea of clouds, and shared the beauty of Zhangjiajie with friends all over the country in various ways.
