Zhangjiajie Tour 4th part; Cable Car to Tianmen Mountain

7 Days Solo Trip Revisiting Winter Mainland China
February 20 to 26, 2015


Tianmen Mountain Cableway is the longest mountain cableway in the world. Its cableway length of 24,459 feet (more than 4.5 miles) with travel time of around 25mins, starting from the city center of Zhangjiajie to the 'Hanging Garden' on the peak. Important; It is highly recommended to buy ticket early in the morning (0700H) because massive volume of tourist group is about to unfold everyday, taking note that winter is supposedly an off-peak season, much more if its summer or spring. I arrived on ticket queuing around 0800H and begun my cable ride around 1330H, that was 5hr30mins.

How to go to Tianmen Mountain Cable Car;
Tianmen Mountain Car is just above the Zhangjiajie train station. From Zhangjiajie train station, follow the cable above which is around less than 1km away from Exit. Entrance fee is 228CNY ($37) (Off-peak season rate). This admission fee includes entrance ticket, Cable car round trip, tourist bus and insurance. Photography and video taking with monopod/tripod is permitted. 

Tianmen Mountain Cablecar was constructed by the French company Poma from nearby Zhangjiajie railway station to the top of the mountain. Tianmen Mountain Cableway is claimed in tourist publications as the "longest passenger cableway of high mountains in the world", with 98 cars and a total length of 7,455 metres (24,459 ft) and ascent of 1,279 metres (4,196 ft).
