A spectacular scenic place on top of the mountain in Zhangjiajie. We took the longest cable car from the city to the mountain, hike up to the Tianmen Mountain. It was the most amazing nature wonder I have ever seen.

My visit was shrouded in fog so the views were non existent. Still, the paths that somehow cling to the cliffs are amazing. I'd love to return on a sunny day! Their are paper maps in English to take away but you might have to ask for one at the desk at the top cable car station.

The view...... That what you'll get. Starting from the cable car, from the city to the mountain, then to the elevator that goes to the summit. Walking along the narrow alley with glass block ways, give us the new kind of adventure (but the way is too narrow and too short) But the best one is the heaven gate.

It was a great experience visiting this spectacular mountain. We took the cable car up,apparently the world's longest cable car ride, and the view was stunning, especially the 99 bends of road down the mountain and the large hole between the 2 peaks which they called the 'Heaven's Door' as what the name of this place derived from. Another highlight... More

We there on an 8-day guided tour. To avoid 3 hours cable car queue, our experienced guide arranged for us to have an early lunch and visited at Tianmen mountain at 12pm. We only had to wait half an hour to take the cable car. As its lunch time, so its less crowded. The view from the cable car was... More

Just visited Tianmen Mountain two days ago, on our last day of our tour to Zhangjiajie. It was raining, and it's very foggy, so we didn't see anything on top of the mountain, not even the Tianmen Gate. For the beautiful road work, the so called 99 curve, we only had a glimpse when we took the cable car up.... More

We went to the mountain by bus because of long queue to take the cable car. There was long queue too to take the small bus, but not as long as the cable car. The bus trip was quite scary, but the driver was skillful. The view on top of the mountain was amazing! We took the escalator to go... More

The crazy formation of the stone. It is breath taking. We took the 999 steps up trail begins at the 3 sisters and unfortunately ends at the Mac Donalds that is prominent at the end of the trail. You can use your pass for 4 days if I am correct. The busses are included but the glas elevators you have... More

This very popular place is a must-visit once you are in Zhangjiajie. A queue for a ropeway to the mountain station may take a few hours but it's worth the wait. Spare a full day to visit this mountain. There's a nice long walk around the mountain. Do not miss to walk on a 200m-long glass-bottomed path which is quite... More
