Full description
Your driver will pick you up from your hotel lobby early morning at 07:30 to 08:00. Meet your group and English-speaking guide at the meeting point and walk to the cable car station of Tianmen Mountain and kick off your day tour. Then, get ready to take the world's longest gondola up to Tianmen Mountain. The Tianmen Mountain Cableway is described in tourist publications as the "longest passenger cableway of high mountains in the world," with 98 cars, total length of 7,455 meters and an ascent of 1,279 meters at an unusual grade of 37 degrees.

Walk on miles of paths built onto the cliff face at the top of the mountain, including sections with glass floors, which is also known as the Sky Walk. There is an escalator built inside the mountain that will take you to Tianmen Gate and 999 Steps. You can either hike the 999 Steps or you can take another escalator and (option: cost 32 RMB) get to the bottom of the steps of Tianmen Mountain. This place is not only a common attraction in Zhangjiajie but also a place that attracts special people such as Dawazi from Xinjiang province, who tightrope walked between the two mountain. Pilots have flown through Tianmen Cave many times, the rock climber Alan Robert climbed up Tianmen Cave and brave people wingsuit fly from the mountain. Everything here makes Tianmen Shan a must-see attraction in Zhangjiajie.

Then, have a chance to learn the culture of Chinese tea as well as taste the local tea to relax and fresh up yourself. Afterwards, have a special opportunity to admire the unique art of sandstone painting. It is a style of creative art made from natural and perm-colored materials, namely, sand, fragmented stone and portions of plants. Finally, the driver will send you back to your hotel. The tour finishes at around 16:00. For the evening, the outdoor Fox Lady Show is recommended. Originating from the traditional Chinese myth and the folk tale “Love between Wood Cutter and Fox,” it is known as the world’s most beautiful real scene musical drama with the high mountains and deep valleys in the stage background. The musical drama integrates the elements of folk music and modern lighting. You will never forget the sweet singing, charming dances, mystery and beauty of the show your whole life. It should be one of the highlights and a must-see for anyone who has a chance to visit the Zhangjiajie area.
