Zhangjiajie Thianmen

The trip begin with a bus trip from the front of hotel we took bus no 102 which took us to the cable car station. After buying the ticket for 258 Yuan we hop on to the cable car. The view was out of this world. The cable car took us all the way to the top.

It is a pity that it was so foggy as it was started to rain. Otherwise the view would have been even more breath taking. We spend some time taking lots of photos. We took the East line which is pack with tourist groups. After buying the 5 Yuan shoe cover we cross the “Coiling Dragon glass bridge”. The view was amazing even with the thick fog covering the valley.

I wanted to Detour back to the West line so we jump walk back to the top of the cable car. But Mom decided that she can’t walk, so we opt-in to get to the peak via lift. We stop and had noodle at the only restaurant at the top. It was expensive, but the middle doesn’t taste that bad.

After having lunch we climb the stair to the top, but due to the fog, we can’t see much outside.

Then we tried to go to the temple using the chair lift, but was informed that it was closed due to the train. So we had back down the lift. Then walk down to the first set of elevators, There were 7 elevators all together connecting down to Thienmen.

We didn’t realize it until we had bought the ticket going down the second sets of elevators. After taking several photos we head down the second sets of elevators.

The view from the bottom is also magnificent. We took numerous photos, the were also a few glass floor tiles that you can step on to test your guts.

From the bottom of the steps we took the green bus down to the main gate, stopping by to have some snacks and more photos. Then taking another green bus down town.
