Tianmen Mountain Map: Cable Car, Bus, Escalator & Visiting Routes

Tianmen Mountain is one of the most representative natural sceneries of Zhangjiajie. The mountain earns its name “Tianmen” (Heavenly Gate) because of its Tianmen Cave, the natural hole that cuts through the mountain, which just looks like a gateway to the heaven. With gentle wind flows after the rain, the lingering fog will pass through the cave from one side to another side, forming a stunning “fog river”. Aside from such miraculous and unique geographic landform and unparalleled natural landscape, the 99 bends Heaven-linking Avenue, 30 mins thrilling cable car and breathtaking cliff hanging walkway in Tianmen Mountain will also leave you special and exciting memory.

The mountain is only about 6km away from Zhangjiajie downtown. To get to the mountain, you could take the Tianmen Mountain Cableway from downtown to the mountain directly, or catch a taxi to the mountain bottom and then catch a sightseeing bus to Tianmen Cave Parking Lot. The cableway is more popular and you can get very relax during the journey, while the sightseeing bus ride is full of sharp turns along the vertical cliffs, which may be a little bit tough for those who easily get carsickness.
