Early February wasn't the best time to visit and the weather was very overcast with light rain about 2-3 degrees. The cable car cost around 228RMB per person and cheaper if you are a student. You need to show your passport when buying tickets. The wait was long..... the ride up took 28 minutes. At the top there was snow... More

I thought we had seen the best when visiting Zhangjiajie National Forest Park attraction but Tianmen Mountain was even better. Very long cable car ride to the top of Tianmen but the views were amazing, from the cable car and from the mountain top. Spent much of the time at the top walking on a path built into the side...

Went there during winter in January. Fast check in because usually tourist wouldn't choose to go during winter due to heavy fog and cold weather. If you choose to go during winter, you may skip all the queue and straight up to the mountain in no time. Cable car ride took 30min. During summer, you may queue up to 4-5hours... More

Our guide, Bruce Tian (highly recommended), allocated a little more than a half day to visiting Tianmen Mountain, and it was definitely worth it. I think we managed to cover all the highlights of the mountain from late morning till evening. The cable car up the mountain is actually the longest cable car ride in the entire world, but we...

Scary glass trail which takes lots of effort and courage to walk on. You can do a circuit hiking on the man-made traik around the mountain. When the weather is good, it is a very nice walking.

We really enjoyed it here but don't go on a weekend if you don't like many people! We traveled in the low season but on a Sunday- it was SO busy compared to any other time of the week. And definitely hike the stairs!! It's worth it.

We decided to visit this place on December 31st, 2016. The thrilling cliff-hanging walkway and glass skywalk was beautiful and clean and stunning. The world's longest cable car ride was so amazing, we did enjoy riding. Unfortunately, 'Heaven's Door' and the 99 Bends, vertical cliffs was closed.
