The next day trip is to a mountain called the Gateway to Heaven, Tianmen Mountain (around 1,500 high). Before only the rock climbers could get to the top. It is a large area on top of a rock, which has completely vertical walls. That is why they have built a 7 km long cable car. The cable car goes from... 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

This was my first trip to China. This i not your normal destination, so there wont be much tourist there. But busy either way. Known as Planet Pandora after the make believe world in the movie, it is one of the most beautiful places in China and a UNESCO site. It was a 2 hour flight from Beijing. The trails... More

I visited Tianmen Mountain in January and it was super cold (there was snow on the ground), but it was still worth it. Note that as of January 10, 2015 the lower portion of the cable car is closed and the iconic cave archway thing is also closed for "maintenance". Even so, it was still great. The cable car ride...

Went in winter, and the glass corridor and the stairs down to the cave was were closed. If you take the west route, you will end up at the eastern route, or take a short cut to the top of the mountain using the middle route and a cable way. This should be doable in half a day. Nothing too... More

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
