Mount Tianmen

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.

Scenery and cultural connotations

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.

Thrilling Experience

When visiting the scenic spot, you have to take a cableway with a length of about 7,500 meters. You can overlook the Tongtian Avenue hovering between the cliffs and the beautiful scenery in the mountains in the cable car. If you are daring, you can also take a walk on the glass plank road that hangs against the wall and experience the excitement of volley walking.


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).

Temple on the Top

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.

Extreme Sport: Wingsuit

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.
