We went and there was not much to do. Every lookout point has a photo area. This made the lookout areas very crowded as each group was lined up for 'professional' photos and each had multiple photos taken. This section of the mountain adapt in the sole purpose to make money. The hallelujah mountains has the same views with more... More

The views were breathtaking but the whole mountain seemed to be flooded with Chinese tourist groups and there was no way to avoid them other than taking a unsafe route. We took a bus from the Yangjiajie gate to the cable car station and then the cable car up onto the mountain. It felt like all we were doing was... More

Awesome views that are really special. Have the option to take the cable car if pressed for time or not up to doing the walk. Crazy busy with people but that is to be expected in China. Take your time to enjoy the views and let the crowds pass.

Tianzi Mountain is vast with dramatic towering rock columns adorned with twisted vegetation amongst deep stone canyons. It is truly a magnificent place in the world of national parks and a must to be experienced by any avid traveller. The Tianzi mountain trails boast of incredible panoramic views of magnificent mountain scapes mostly from cliff hanging, cantilevered cement walkways suspendes... More

Absolutely amazing place. It's exceeded all of my expectations. I've stayed for 2,5 days, wish it was a bit longer. 3-4 days would have been perfect! The visibility in the mountains is not so great when it's overcasting, but there are planty of other spots to explore. My advise - plan an extra day or half a day, just in... More

The views are worth the journey. There is nothing like it anywhere else in the world. Near the top of the Tianzi Cablecar the crowds can be horrendous, the toilets stink and there is even a MacDonalds. We walked down the path to the bottom of the valley and in a couple of hundred metres we had the path to... More

It's a beautiful place to visit. There will be crowds of locals. I buoy the experience of being there with them as well as the views.

Tianzi Shan is an amazing site and an amazing sight. According to the map information, it is 5,000 metres from the start of the climb to the exit at the top, but there are an awful lot of steps! If you want, you can take a bamboo sedan for part of the journey, but it looked a bit bouncy for... More

What an amazing place. It was a fascinating place to see how something so natural is so overwhelming and beautiful. The height of the mountains cannot be explained until you see for yourself. It is a long walk around the mountain, dont rush it, Take your time and take it all in. Some people will be wanting to rush you... More
