The Whitewater Slalom Center at the Wulingyuan Scenic Spot of Zhangjiajie welcomed the first group of tourists for the new season on the afternoon of April 5. The Australian guests tried the program right after it was opened for tourists on that day.
Due to warmer weather and increased water volume, Zhangjiajie Whitewater Slalom Center took the lead in reopening the program. The head of the center introduced that the quality of slalom infrastructure will be improved and upgraded this year. And great efforts will be made to build Zhangjiajie into a stop of the International Whitewater Championship.
Established in 2003, the Whitewater Slalom Center is located at the reach of the Suoxi River, west of the logo gate of Wulingyuan Scenic Spot. It was once appointed as a training base for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Over a decade after its establishment, many domestic and international competitions have been held here, such as the “Fifth National City Games”, the “Tenth National Games” and the Asian Whitewater Slalom Championship. It has attracted hundreds of thousands of domestic and overseas tourists and enjoyed reputation of “the best in Asian and the first-class in the world”.
