It's so amazing! Everyone who love mountains is going to love this place for sure. Even bad weather is good -> less people, clouds and fog make pictures outstanding.

Who doesn't want to go on the longest cable car in the world? :) The ride was great! And the mountains surrounding were very impressive! The only negative comment I could say is about the weather since we couldn't see much on the top of the mountain! At first, we were very disappointed but as you walk around the park... More

Beginning with the sky tram from the city center to the top of the mountain, you're already taking in some of the great views of this attraction. The harrowing, see-through walkways at the top was breathtaking and terrifying for people with acrophobia like me. Just the engineering feat of building the long, winding walkway along the mountainside was truly incredible.... More

The local saying says "the gods give Zhangiajie a gift of making it so that people (tourists) have to come back for many days to to see all" which is a polite way of saying the weather is rainy and cloudy about 50% of the time so that you can't see all the sights in 2-3 days. The the legend... More

The lines were too long so we gave up and didn't go. Sad - we wanted to see it. And the cable car was very close to our hotel so even more disappointing.

I expected the mountain to be less exciting than Zhangjiajie national forest park. However it was pretty entertaining. Cable car to the top, walkways around the cliffs, glass-bottomed walk, spectacular views from the top. The bus ride from the middle cablecar station to the top on the "99 curves road" was really exciting, but not for nervous passengers. The 999... More

We went to Tianmen Mountain on 9 September 2014. We went there by tour group. When we reached there, the place was crowded with tourists. The escalator up to the Tianmen (hole) was not open yet. So we had to climb up as we understood was 999 steps. All of a sudden dark clouds blanketed the sky, lightning flashed and... More

I went there on Sep 26, 2014. Luckily and surprisingly, it was the first opening day of the escalator up to the hole. I was impressed by the heights of the mountains, walking glass, sceneric cable car, etc. Though I'm a kind of fearing of the heights and tried to hide it, it was discovered and teased by a native...
