Those are just a few of the superlatives I can think of to describe this magical place. If you like nature and mountains, this is a must see. I only spent a day there, which is way too short. I'm planning a week next time I go. This is easily my favorite place on earth. Besides the scenery, there are... More

I hate the Avatar movie, but this place must be visited by everyone in the world. I have been in lots of places in my life, but Tianzi Mountai is for sure one of the best. When you go there, stay at least 3 nights at the Pullman Hotel. The only which is a really International 5 stars Hotel and... More

The view would have been amazing if not.... the very dense fog. I Still recommended the hike, as the scenery is beautiful even despite the fog. I started the hike on right to the Monkey Garden. After you enter the park through the Wulingyuan Entrance (武陵源门票站) you will have to take a free bus towards Ten miles Natural Gallery, and... More

Unbelievably beautiful. No words can describe the view that awaits you. This is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Photos cannot capture the vastness, the sheer size, depth and extent of these mountains.

really enjoyed our trip. The scenery was just amazing, the weather was great, and the place wasnt overrun by tourists. So many photo opportunities and definitely worth a visit.

Wished we went on our own, free and easy style, instead of on a guided tour. Our guide was terrible and she spoilt it for us. The weather was bad too. Just too bad... I think the views would have been great if we went during a different period, and under different circumstances ...

But before we can get in the elevator, we must waiting in the qeue more than 15 minutes. On the way back, I used the cable car. It took about 15 minutes... More

This was a cool addition to our tour. It offers a different view on this area and I would recommend adding it to your itinerary.

The place is awesome if you look for scenery. Part of what Avatar mountain really looks like in the movie. The only problem I had was that since it was so crowded (perhaps because of winter holiday), the locals are just cutting lines. I have the picture of the person that is taking private tour and apparently the guide knows... More

Really enjoyed taking in the views, but not so much the HUGE number of Chinese tour groups passing through with their megaphones and loud chatting/sometimes yelling
