The access to this place is by road or cable car. Going up the 7.5 km long cable car is itself an experience. When you reach the top, it's another experience going around the mountain over the walking trail including a portion made of glass bottom. The view from the top is great and the Gateway to Heaven - the... More

Taking the 25 minute cable car to this mountain is an experience all on it's own! We were fortunate that there was no lineup at all when we went late in the morning. The weather was clear, making the views from the cable car unbelievable! The huge gaping hole in this majestic mountain is quite the sight! Once at the... More

If you are new to China or haven't experienced crowded mayhem before, I would not recommend this place. You are up thousands of feet on the platform on the side of a cliff and crowds of people will literally push you out of the way so they can take a selfie. I have been in China for years and I...

We've been on a lot of gondola rides and this one is the most vertical ride ever. Towards the end, I was starting to get dizzy from just looking down. The typical route is to take the gondola up. We went on a Sunday. There really wasn't much of a wait at all. The gondola ride is about 25 to... More

We visited Zhangjiajie for 2 days and had to decide which park to visit while we were short in time. We chose the Tianmen Park as we wanted to walk at the glass bridge. We went up with the cable car when the thunder and rain started, the cablecar stopped for 15 minutes. It was a funny start because all... More

Very beautiful area. When you take the cablecar you will be surprised of all the beauty you will see. The cablecar goes up till the top, amazing views! Then follow the paths and discover the glass path. When I was there it was foggy so I couldn't see the depth, but still impressing. Absolutely go there!

I really liked the 25 minute cable ride up to the top of the mountain. But then was saddened to hear how many men lost their lives just to build this attraction. Too bad it was a cloudy and foggy day, therefore we couldn't see the whole view. The trails goes on and on. We loved the part where you... More

This is worth the trip. Nice cable car rides all the way up to the mountains. Cool view of the Tianmen hole. Adventurous glass cliff walks.

Grand canyon USA, Niagara Falls, visiting this mountain rates as one of those special moments. We were lucky with the weather as we ascended the 7 KM cable car the fog gradually cleared revealing the mountain and heavens gate. We had employed a guide for the day and while it was quite doable on your own the company and insights... More
