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

Ot the last day, we finished our trip very early and our flight was in the Middle night, so how to spare the rest time was a... 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

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.
