Zhangjiajie, China

Get a ride on cable car to Tianmen mountain

Spanning over 7 kilometers, Tianmen Shan cable car ascending to Tianmen, a famous mountain located within Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, is listed as one of the world's longest cableways. The car runs from Zhangjiajie downtown up to the top of the mountain where houses the renowned Tianmen Cave or Heaven's Gate, a natural hole formed into the side of the mountain. Many people claimed that the cable car ride is the highlight of their trips to Tianmen Mountain due to the sublime sceneries on the way. Passing over the edge of the city and farmland, the cable car starts to go upward about halfway of the journey, looks down the Heaven-linking Avenue, a hazardous winding road with 99 consecutive bends that leads up to the mountain, and offers visitors a breathtaking view of Tianmen Mountain including Heaven's Gate from a distance. Once reaching the cableway station near the mountain summit, don't miss out the chance enjoy the thrills of walking on kilometers of narrow paths consisting of both the plank road and glass skywalks built onto the vertical cliffs, keeping your head out over the railing, and looking down at the valley far, far below. From the top of the mountain you can follow the escalator going down to climb 999 steps to the Heaven’s Gate. The cable car itself along with an excursion marvelling at the magnificence of Tianmen Mountain is definitely a fantastic experience you must have when traveling to Zhangjiajie.
