We took the tram up ( a 30 minutes ride over the city, the farms and the mountains) and took a couple of trails and visited the Tien Men Temple. It is obvious the time is too short to cover it all in one day. I will go back next year to get up to the Tien Men Hole. I... More

My only regrest was I didn't plan my trip to include Tianmen Mountain when I visited Zhangjiajie National Forest Park & Wulingyuan Scenic Area. By the time I got to this mountain, it was our last day and we only have half a day to explore it. We should have listened to the advice given to us by our guide... More

They say Tianmen Mountain is only 4900 plus feet but because they made the cliff walkways surrounding the whole mountain, it makes your walking journey a very frightful one. Try not to look down and just walked ahead. You are warned, it may take hours to finish one circuit if you walk at the west wing at the top of... More

After we finished our Avatar trip in ZJJ National Forest Park, we visited Tianmen Mountain at the last day of the itinerary, we experienced the longest cable car from the city to the top of the mountain, it was very thrilling; the glass walkway was remarkable too, we got a good weather that day, and definitely we saw the sea...

There is a huge amount of money invested on thsi mountain,  the place is ok, the cliff walks are fun and the glass plank is a great photo op, the cablecar vistas are also mention worthy, the 99 turns road is both an beautyful and scary, depending on the mood of the bus driver that day. Still is not a... More

Some people said "you're like walking through the clouds" There's a floor made by crystal so you feel like floating on the air. Amazing. Be sure to consult if they're not fixing the cable car before you visit, it happens to me once.

No point repeating what everyone has said - but just a little more information that might help. Tianmen opens officially at 7.30 a.m. in Summer and 8.00 in winter. However we got there at 7.20 and it was already open and very busy (we went on a Wednesday in August). However it took only 20 minutes to get on the... More

The hole in the mountain rock is quite unique due to the weathering. The 999 steps was very tiring as the steps were small. A very unique spot.

Wonderful view for photo taking. Certainly, climbing up is also good if you have the energy.

This was one of the best places I have been in China. Zhangjiajie, unlike many other cities in China was relatively clean and kept well as long as you stayed on the beaten path. Cable Car – This is just a little North of the train and bus station. There really isn’t any need to give directions because all you... More
