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

Absolutely STUNNING scenery around the Zhangjiajie area, including the mountain park that gave rise to the Avatar floating mountains, Tianmen Mountain, Yellow Dragon Caves, etc. The Mountain park area is pretty crowded with tourists (mainly Chinese), but the views of the mountains and forested areas are well worth the visit. Tianmen Mountain is excellent, with possibly one of the worlds... More

One of the hidden gems of China. Practically unknown by western travellers who normally just go to the more well known attractions in China like Shanghai, Beijing, The great wall and the Terracotta warriors. I was one of very few caucasians there and the national park is unbelievably beautiful and the walk is so spectacular but definitely not for the... More

A beautiful mountain with some really unique geologic features. The cable car is not for the faint of heart, especially if you take it during a massive thunderstorm like I did. The glass-bottom walkway around the mountain edge is also scary in the rain.

It is a very nice one day trip in ZhangJiaJie. The view is excellent and the ride is very smooth. It is also a good exercise to climb up 906 steps to Tianmen Gate.

The cable car ride, which is the most amazing cable car ride ever!!! Not... More

The longest cable car in the world. If your scared of heights, then maybe think twice about doing this one. It is worth the trip, with many walks going off at the top, and more from the middle station. Most walks are on the edge of quite steep dropoffs, some stand out from the edge of the cliffs. Not for... More
