A great park, but a bit pricey

This place is only 40 km away from the infamous Zhangjiajie National Park but the rock formation and scenery are very different. The entrance ticket was over RMB250, it includes... read more

This place is only 40 km away from the infamous Zhangjiajie National Park but the rock formation and scenery are very different. The entrance ticket was over RMB250, it includes the shuttle bus and the tram ride but it doesn't include the lower escalator ride up the Tianmen cave. The air quality was quite bad on the day we went;... More

Tianmen Mountain (天門山) is located in Zhangjiajie, in northwestern Hunan Province, China. It has an elevation of 1,518.6 m (4,980 ft). It is famous because of the Tianmen Cave (天門洞, 'Heaven's Door') which was discovered in year 263 of the Three Kingdoms (三國, AD 220–280) period. Tianmen Cave is a natural, water-eroded cave with a height of 131.5 m (431.4... More

Took route B and was walking up the stairs towards Tianmen hole and taking the cable car down. Was a great workout. A bit disappointed with the glass platform though. View was great as I started early. Can see the fog forming like a cloud sea surrounding the mountains. Overall was a satisfied trip

We visited Tianman Mountain at end of August. It was less crowdy than usual. We bought tickets for cable car (Type A) online on Taobao so did not stay in line to get tickets. Still we stayed 2 hours to get cable car. After reaching on mountain it was less crowd. View was very good. On Top Mountain weather was... More

A much exhilarating experience compared to the National Forest Park with the steep cable-car ride, 99 bends, cliff walk, glass sky-walk and beautiful scenery.

The huge crowds visit this area in the morning and midday. An evening visit will give you the mountain almost to yourself and give you plenty of time to stroll around and enjoy the view. The glass pathway is a fun addition, but the view right below it is rather poor. An easy trip is to take the cable car... More

Here you get to see the beautiful geologic formations from a different view. This time you are looking up versus looking down. Very impressive and well worth seeing. Nothing like it the rest of the world. Highly recommend.

Forst advise. Make sure that you go to the door of heaven when it is not foggy. Because if it is foggy then you can take the picture with the door of heaven. Make sure to go to the glass pathway. You have to pay 5 yuan only. I recommend that you take the cable car then take the bus... More

Tianmen translation = Heaven's Gate, for those that do not know. Please do go in good weather conditions (sunny and bright). The place itself is rather large and depending on you may take a whole day to complete. Take the cable car up to the mountain, and once you're done, take the buses down the windy roads at the bottom... More

Tianmen Mountain is right by the airport so it should be easy to get to and a great start to your Zhangjiajie experience. The main problem would be the line for the cable cars (which took me about 2 hours during peak season even though I arrived early). It's particularly beautiful when shrouded in mist. It made me believe I... More
