Tianmen Mountain - Review

At an elevation of 1518.6 metres, the Tianmen Mountains comprise of 40 peaks with a height more than 1000 metres. Being at an extreme height, the day is longer at the Tianmen Mountain hence it is also known as endless sky without darkness.

Popular for its natural miracle- the Tianmen Cave which was the by-product of a collapsing cliff in ancient times, the beauty of the area enchants visitors. You need to climb 999 steps in order to access the cave and at an elevation of 1260 metres, the fog and clouds make a magical picture.

You can reach the mountain by boarding the Tianmen Mountain cableway which is the longest mountain cableway in the world with a hypotenuse length of 7455 meters.

Heaven-linking Avenue and the Bonsai Garden (Hanging Garden) are must-visits in the Tianmen Mountain area. The turning water and the moving of the heaven’s cave are tow scenes worth experiencing on the visit and locals have many tales surrounding these spectacular happenings.

Attractions: Tianmenshan National Forest Park, Tianmenshan Temple, the Tianmen Academy, Transparent Viewing Deck made of Classes, The Ghost Valley Plank Road, Yuhu Peak.

Tianmen Mountain, Zhangjiajie Reviews

  • Определенно на эту гору стоит сходить если вы прибыли в Чжандзядзе. На нее можно потратить и целый день, но можно и быстрее. Мы пришли к фуникулёру в районе 9 утра. За билетами стояли не долго. Тут стоит заметить что есть 3 маршрута на гору, из них самым оптимальным я считаю: вверх на канатке, вниз на машине. В этом случае у вас не будет крутого подъёма по лестнице. В очереди на канатку мы простояли чуть больше часа, очередь начиналась со входа на улице (2 витка). На самой горе все просто, сначала можно сразу скататься на лифте к храму на обзорную площадку. Это бесплатно, и посмотреть на всю гору сверху. После этого можно обойти всю гору против часовой стрелки по западному маршруту. Тут стоить иметь в виду что там есть 3 стеклянных моста, но на западном маршруте он у вас будет по пути, а 2 на восточном в обратную сторону. Как по мне, хватит одного моста, поэтому остальные на восточной части можно смело пропускать. После того как дойдете до спуска к известной дыре в горе называемой ухом можно в принципе сразу спускаться к нему на эскалаторе, проходить часть маршрута от него до фуникулёра необязательно - те же виды. Но не пропустите крайние точки на восточной карте. Там тоже прикольные виды с площадки. Ну а после того как посмотрите на ухо можно смело спускаться по ступеням до маршруток что бы вернуться обратно.Внизу были уже в районе 5 вечера. На горе полно точек с местным фастфудом типа сосисок (ужасно сладкие - не берите) но есть одна полноценная кафешка на севере где заканчиваются западный и восточный маршруты. Можно отобедать и там уже рис с мясом или вонтоны. Ну и платный подъемник на горе я не вижу смысла брать.

  • Magnificent scenic beautiful mountain. Very inspiring place. The journey climbing or trekking rather to the top was absolutely exciting. Many visitors prefer to trekk to the top. Huge and tall mountain belt. Excellent scenery of the places from the top. Feel little exhausted as we reach the top. Fantastic monastery up there. Liked the monastery and the stupendous architecture. Love this atmosphere.

  • Beautiful scenery but can be quite tiring climbing up and down the place. Wear comfortable shoes as there will be plenty of walking and climbing. 😅 Avoid going during China's public holidays or their school holidays. It will become very crowded and long wait for the cable cars. Queue for the cable cars can take up to 3 hours during peak period. 😢

  • One of the many great places to visit in ZhangJiaJie. Going up by cable var and going down with the minibus through the 99-turn road.

  • Great place but pretty crowded. You can get there by cable car or car. The cable car is a great way to start the journey. I used in on a cloudy day so it feels like we are traveling in the cloud, to nowhere. Great feeling. There’re many places for you to visit, like the mountain gate where two mountains meet and form a gate, the glass bridge, the long and winding road... They are still building more infrastructure and will open more service.
