This is simply a must see place. Do not miss it. We were unlucky as we went on a day when it was very cloudy and raining so were not treated with the stunningly clear views on the photos, however we still managed to take some spectacular shots. We took route B, which was the bus to the top and... More

If you forget the crowds, the lines to get up, then you will have an amazing day on top of the mountain. If you have a good local guide, he will take you on a route with not so many people. Also: food on the top is ok, you only have to take some water with you.

Gondola leaves from town. Long lines in morning - best to wait until 12:00 noon to get in line - you may have a shorter wait - but never longer than early morning. You do not need a guide - they will just cost you too much and they will just get in your way. Most guides are not locals... More

We knew saturday was going to be crowded but even at 8am the lines were crazy. We first went to line up for tickets for the cable car but then were asked if we wanted to join a tour group. What we didn't realise was that the line with the tour grp was actually for the buses up to the... More

It's pretty cool to go up there in the cable car. Mind you, that I'm usually terrified of heights, but I did well, and DID THE SKYWALK!! I asked a very sweet Chinese guy if I could hold his arm, and very kind to let me! For some reason I was thinking the skywalk was really LONG, or all the... More

The craziest bus ride from the bottom to 200 meters from the top. Driving on the cliff faces in a lot of places. The elevators that are inside the top of the mountain are unreal, only in China. The views from the top are amazing and the walkway around to cliffs at the top are spectacular. The GLASS sections are... More

This Park is well worth the trip. The lines to get ticket to get on the cable car are very long but move fairly fast. The ticket cost 261 RMB. If you plan to get on the glass mountain it costs 5 RMB. The cable car holds 8 adults (4 on each side). It is about 22.5 minutes long each... More

Beautiful forest and amazing cable car ride. Watch out for the weather. The clouds were so thick when we visited we had no view and if our guide did not tell us when we were in the cave we would not have known. Still highly recommended. Paul Australia

If you are in Zhangjiajie, you should know that there are two things to see here, the forest park that takes 2-3 days and the Tian Men Shan that is closer to the airport and takes half a day,NOT accounting for the crowds. The queue to get into the cable car was really long on this particular day and so... More

I when to zjj at the end of october last year, the tianmen mountain is my first destination in ZJJ. To get to the heaven's gate we must take the cable car, then change to bus or the second cable car. At that time we changed to bus due to the second cable car was on maintenance. The road to... More
