china zhangjiajie tour
Yuanjiajie is the most relaxed and popular scenic spot in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. Travel agencies like to go. If you play carefully, it takes a total of 2 hours.
Yuanjiajie contains four attractions, all on one road. If you come from the chaos, you will arrive at the back garden in turn – the enchanted platform – the Qiankun column – the first bridge in the world. However, if the white dragon ladder comes up and takes the eco-car, it will first arrive at the Qiankun column, then turn left to go to the enchantment platform. The back garden does not have to go. It is the same scene as the ecstasy, and the angle is not as good as the ecstasy. it is good. Then turn right to the first bridge in the world.

1. There are several entrances to the forest park. Don’t take the two ticket stations of Yangjiajie and Tianzishan. It is too far away and the road conditions are very bad. It is recommended to enter from the forest park. If you do not live in the mountains, it is recommended to live in Wulingyuan in the next few days. It is a small town from the Wulingyuan ticket station. The environment is very good. It is convenient and quick to enter and leave the forest park from Wulingyuan.
2. There are many people waiting in line at each bus stop in the scenic spot. Try to reserve more time. The basic queue time is more than half an hour, every day.
3. If the physical strength is OK, don’t want to line up to take the Bailong elevator, you can go up the hill and go uphill, and walk slowly for an hour.
4. It is strongly recommended to take the line of the Shili Gallery on the mountain or down the mountain. There are countless observation decks on the road. The scenery is excellent. There are few streets on the observation deck on the mountain. There are few people, just look around and take pictures. Personally think that the scenery of the section of the Shili Gallery train is the most common line of the whole line, it is precisely this section, the tour group went the most.
5. The best place to watch the sunrise is in Daguantai. This is a well-known thing, but in fact, if you can see the clouds and the rainbow, you need luck. It is raining the night before, and I will be lucky to see it. If you love photography, you can refer to the weather first.

杨家界总共有三条线:
1. Natural Great Wall
After taking the green car in the scenic spot and getting off at Yangjiajie, go up to the Yangjiajie cableway and go up in the direction. After the cableway, you will walk to the natural Great Wall in 5 minutes.
china zhangjiajie yangjiajie tour

Then return the original way. Walk along the other big road. After the next step, you will see the forked road. On the left is to go to the sky and the air corridor. On the right is to go to Wulongzhai and Tianbo.
2. Wulongzhai, Tianbofu
Go to Tianbofu for about 1.5 hours. Many people go to the small platform in Tianbofu. In fact, it is not necessary. The above perspective is not good. You can go around the place of “entrance” and “export” from below, and the angle of view is much better.

Yangjiajie – Tianbofu
3. Step into the sky, air corridor
Return to the fork, and go to the left is the way to the sky and the air corridor.
Going to the sky and the air corridor, although it is very far away, it takes 3 hours to go back and forth, and it goes up and down, but all the essences of Yangjiajie are concentrated here. The large-scale peak wall landscape is very shocking. It is strongly recommended to go. It is the second best spot to be with the old house.

Yangjiajie – Air Corridor

When you go to the forked place and go to the sky and the air corridor, you will first go through the five prayers, then go a little further. When you go to a canteen, you will see a path, only a few steps, on the ground. There is a stone tablet that goes to the direction of the first bridge in the world. After the road goes down 20 meters, I can see the crossroads and go to the left and right sides. Anyway, I am on the left side and can reach the Yangjiajie parking lot in a few minutes. The place has been saved for half an hour. After reading the steps and the air corridor, remember to go out from this path!

zhangjiajie yangjiajie tourist map
Tianzishan mountain
Tianzi Mountain is the second most popular scenic spot except Yuanjiajie. Because the spots are concentrated and easy to play, it naturally becomes a place where the tour group is concentrated. It takes only 2 hours to play around in a circle.
1. Shentang Bay, Point Platform
The main viewpoint of Tianzi Mountain is in Helong Park, but there are two small points in front, namely Shentang Bay and Point Terrace. After getting on the bus and talking to the driver, he will stop at the corresponding point. The perspective of Shentang Bay is not very good. You can’t go, it’s better to order the station. There are very few people there, which is good for taking pictures.

2, Helong Park
Helong Park is not big, there are five or six observation decks, but the best view is only one observation deck, which is the Xihai Peak Forest, or Yunqingyan.

3. Fairy flower, Yubifeng, Tianzige, Samurai horses
After finishing the Helong Park, I went to a forked intersection and went up to take the cableway. At this time, you should turn to the right. There are still a few points to look at. There are fairy flowers, royal pens, emperor and samurai horses.

Huangshizhai

Huangshizhai is an independent scenic spot, close to the Forest Park ticketing station. After entering the forest park ticket station, take 5 minutes to the big oxygen bar square, turn left to take the eco-car to the Huangshizhai cableway station.
Take a circle of the big loop for about 2 hours.
china zhangjiajie tour
The front mountain down the mountain road is to reach the big oxygen bar square, about 1 hour. Later, the mountain down the mountain road to the Huangshizhai cableway station.
Compared with several other scenic spots, the scenery of Huangshizhai is average, not very stunning, and it is the same peak forest as Yuanjiajie. If time is not enough, you can give up.

How to plan Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge Tour

ZhangJiaJie National Forest Park
  • Zhangjiajie Forest Park Scenic Spot includes Huangshizhai, Shadaogou, Jinbianxi, Yaozizhai, Yuanjiajie Scenic Area and Yangjiajie Scenic Spot;
  • The Suoxiyu Nature Reserve has developed 8 small scenic spots, including Xihai, Shili Gallery, Shuihuan Simen, Huanglong Cave, Baizhang Gorge, Baofeng Lake, etc.;
  • Tianzi Mountain Scenic Area has 5 main tourist areas: Tea Pan, Shentang Bay, Laowuchang, Huanglongquan, Fengqishan and Shijiatun;
  • Yangjiajie is located in the northwest of Wulingyuan, adjacent to Tianzishan in the north. There are three tourist areas, namely, Xiangxi River, Longquan Gorge and Baimen Valley. Tianbo House is also here.
  • If all is fully played, it will take about 6-7 days;

Tips:You are likely to be stunned by complex terrain and shredded sights. In fact, you only need to remember two points to identify the position:

1. Wulingyuan and Forest Park are the two most commonly used entrances. From one to the other, you can walk through the scenic area along the circular route.
2. The steep cliff divides the scenery into two on the mountain and under the mountain. In the area, the Golden Whip Creek and the two entrances are under the mountain. The rest of the attractions are on the hills. There are various ropeways and elevators under the hills and mountains. You can also walk along the stone steps.
3. There are many forks in the core scenic spot. Many beautiful scenic spots are relatively remote. From one attraction to another, tourists often cannot estimate the time correctly. It is a pure self-help tour. What people often encounter

ZhangJiaJie National Forest Park Tips
1. There are several entrances to the forest park. Don’t take the two ticket stations of Yangjiajie and Tianzishan. It is too far away and the road conditions are very bad. It is recommended to enter from the forest park. If you do not live in the mountains, it is recommended to live in Wulingyuan in the next few days. It is a small town from the Wulingyuan ticket station. The environment is very good. It is convenient and quick to enter and leave the forest park from Wulingyuan.
2. There are many people waiting in line at each bus stop in the scenic spot. Try to reserve more time. The basic queue time is more than half an hour, every day.
3. If the physical strength is OK, don’t want to line up to take the Bailong elevator, you can go up the hill and go uphill, and walk slowly for an hour.

Zhangjiajie Tour’s Accommadation:
zhangjiajie tourist map

 

How to arrange accommodation in Zhangjiajie
1. Before (or after) the day of playing Tianmenshan, it is best to live near the railway station. There are many inns near the railway station. The conditions are similar, generally 100. -200 or so
2. In the forest park scenic spot, it is recommended to live in the village of Lilac.
Zhangjiajie scenic area is very large, generally have to play 2-3 days.
The scenery distinguishes between the mountain and the mountain, and most of the attractions are on the mountain. The scenic spots on the mountain definitely cannot be played.
If you don’t stay in the mountains for one night, you have to go back, but this is basically a three-hour walk.
It takes 2-3 hours to go down the mountain, and it takes a lot of effort; take a cableway or a Bailong ladder and pay for it.
And returning to the mountains in the next day, you need to spend another physical strength, money and time, so it is not worth the candle.
So most of the tourists choose to stay in the mountains for one night, which saves time, effort and money.

The cloves are full of shops, and they are very convenient to go to the environmental protection station.
I live in the first Xia Keju in the village of Clove, although the conditions are not very good, but the advantages are two:
One is cheaper, the second is the nearest to the station, and often comes back from the scenic spot, always It is hoped that the sooner you arrive at the inn, the better!
If you want to choose a better inn,
you can consider the Bajie Youth Hostel in Lilac Village, as well as Milan, snails, etc., and the reputation is good.

3. It is best to live in Wulingyuan that night before playing the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is relatively close to Wulingyuan.
End of the forest park in the evening, from Wulingyuan to the scenic spot, live in Wulingyuan, the most convenient way to go to the Grand Canyon.

Zhangjiajie Tour’s luggage
Due to the scenic spots in Zhangjiajie, Zhangjiajie’s consignment is very mature.
You can entrust any inn in the Zhangjiajie urban area,
or at the central bus station, check in the luggage to the designated inn on the mountain,
as long as the name, mobile phone No., and the name of the inn, 20 yuan per piece of luggage.
Similarly, when in the mountains,
can also entrust the inn on the mountain to check the baggage to the city’s central bus station or any designated inn.
The baggage check-in can be done by any inn.
Before Zhangjiajie Tour:
1, the less the better the bag, because the daily accommodation in the mountains is not fixed, it will be very tired to carry the bag all the way;
2, it is best to bring an umbrella or buy a disposable raincoat in advance, the price is more expensive in the scenic area, the rainy season It is best to wear waterproof shoes. There are shoe covers sold in the scenic area but not slippery;
3, sunscreen products with a good index of 30 or more, mosquitoes, sunglasses, sun hats and at least three sets of replacement underwear and socks, some paper towels And wet wipes for disinfection, shoes should wear thick and non-slip sneakers;
4, with a band-aid, anti-inflammatory tablets, antidiarrheal tablets and other drugs.

 

Dressing guide:

The temperature difference between day and night in Zhangjiajie is large, and the temperature difference between the four seasons is relatively small. The temperature difference between the core scenic spot of Zhangjiajie and the urban area is about 5-10 °C, the hottest city is 39 °C, and the scenic spot is about 30 °C.
4-6 months, September-November: The temperature in the spring and autumn is lower than that in the city. In the early summer, you still need to wear long-sleeved clothes. In the evening, you should also be covered with a thin stomach. Keep warm, especially in the rainy season in May. With umbrella or raincoat.
7-8 months, December-February: Summer is very cool on the mountain, pay attention to sun protection in the city; snow will be on the mountain in winter, with trekking poles, non-slip shoes, keep warm.

Zhangjiajie Tour Other notes:
(1) The rainy mountain road is slippery, rain and fog will cause the line of sight to be unclear. It is best not to risk mountain climbing in the rain.
(2) During the golden week and summer vacation, it is the tourist season, and the prices of various services are rising. Traffic, accommodation and other inconvenience;
(3) all places to pay can bargain, especially for meals, accommodation and chartered cars, generally can get 7 or 8 fold; can be better with peers, many costs can be flat Booths can also be taken care of each other;

(5) Pay attention to the special vehicles of the legal tour group. Recognize the documents of the tour guides and porters;
(6) Don’t be wild and bonfire in the scenic area;
(7) Don’t be curious about the sudden quarrel or some strange scenes. Stealing and robbing;
(8) For areas marked as “forbidden to pass” and “dangerous”, do not venture to try;
(9) It is more energy-consuming to climb a mountain, and you can prepare a little dry food and bottled drink water to fill your hunger. , reduce travel expenses. Money should be dispersed, if there is a national bank card, it is best to bring it, and ID card;
(10) There is a baggage check-in service between the train station and the scenic spot in Zhangjiajie Scenic Area, you can be near the train station. The check-in point will ship the baggage to the home to be stayed. Conversely, the baggage can also be checked in to the train station in advance, and you can go directly to it at the time of arrival, each baggage is 10 yuan. It is recommended that before consignment, it is best to confirm with the owner of the accommodation whether there is such a business in their home for consignment and receipt;
(11) Don’t trust the words of the so-called travel agency staff on the train. After they recruited people, they usually resold them to travel agencies at a price of 100-150 yuan/person. The management is not perfect.
(12) The three groups of monkeys in the scenic area are the “head snakes” here. Don’t provoke them, don’t expose food, so as not to be hurt by monkeys while robbing them;
(13) It is not necessary to climb the mountain at night, but it is best to have a flashlight in Zhangjiajie to prevent accidents.

ZhangJiaJie Mount TianMen Tour

Tianmen Mountain , has an elevation of 1518.6 meters, only 8 kilometers far from the downtown and is one of the most representative natural sceneries of Zhangjiajie.

Tianmen Mountain not only attracts the attention by its miraculous and unique geographic landform and unparalleled natural landscape, but also well known for its profound cultural connotations and famous colorful humanistic sites.

Tianmen Mountain is a mountain located within Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, in the northwestern part of Hunan Province, China.

A 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) The highest gradient is an unusual 37 degrees. Tourists can walk on kilometres of paths built onto the cliff face at the top of the mountain, including sections with glass floors. An 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) road with 99 bends also reaches the top of the mountain and takes visitors to Tianmen cave, a natural hole in the mountain of a height of 131.5 metres (431 ft).

A large temple is also located on the summit with chairlift or footpath access. The original temple here was built in the Tang Dynasty. Today a more recent construction with Tang dynasty architecture occupies the site and includes a vegetarian restaurant in the 10000 sq mi of setting.

On September 25, 2011 Jeb Corliss glided through the 100 feet (30 m) wide archway in the mountain using a wingsuit. The flight began from a helicopter at 6,000 feet (1,800 m), and ended with a safe landing on a nearby bridge. The World Wingsuit League held the first and second World Wingsuit Championships in Tianmen. On October 8, 2013, during a training jump for the second world championships, Viktor Kováts plunged to his death when he was unable to open his parachute.

In August 2016, a glass skywalk overlooking Tongtian Avenue, called the “Coiling Dragon Cliff,” opened to the public.

Best Times to Visit

April to October is the golden time to travel to Tianmen Mountain, as the temperature during this period is moderate and comfortable.

However,try to avoid the Chinese public holidays and summer vacation(July-August)!

Winter is not a very good choice due to the low visibility and the closure of the Tianmen Cave, please check the availability before planning your trip.

The scenery is best on clear days. On rainy days there is usually thick fog (cloud) over the mountains, which covers everything. Mists are usually heavy if it rains the day before. The mountains in mist are a mystical scene, so there is an upside to the cloudiness.

Good to Know

  • The tour requires a lot of walking, including 6 kilometers of easy walking along the cliff walkway and 999 steep steps.
  • Long lines: As the mountain is very famous among Chinese travelers, expect to see large and noisy crowds.
  • The red ribbons along the walkway: The Chinese hang them for special (superstitious) reasons. But these red colors really upset the harmony of the natural greens and grays.
  • No English is spoken and there are no English signs, so it is not easy to find the way in such a big park if you travel alone.
  • The fight for a seat in the tourist bus up to the cave is not something Westerners are used to.
