Tianzi Mountain Clouds, Zhangjiajie

4.7
#2 of 9 in Wildlife in Hunan
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
One of the most idiosyncratic and otherworldy landscapes on the planet, the World Heritage Site of Tianzi Mountain Clouds affords memorable views of towering columns of rock, furnished by trees and shrouded in misty clouds. Covering 67 sq km (25.8 sq mi), the Mountain Nature Reserve's highest peak stands at 1,262 m (4,140 ft) above sea level. In 1982, the reserve became China's first national forest park, and 10 years later was recognized byUNESCO. Take a cable car to a complex of various viewing platforms, and admire the odd and angular (seemingly gravity-defying) geologicial structures. Bring your camera along, as you'll want to take those awe-inspiring views home with you. Make Tianzi Mountain Clouds part of your personalized Zhangjiajie itinerary using our Zhangjiajie tourist route planner.

  • If you look at the words as much as the film's famous place is enough to be difficult to go unspeakable. People's Republic of China really is a gift from God down to the calm envy.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would do it again in a few years. Traveled with teens who also enjoyed the trip.  more »
  • Fabulous views! The multiple stair climbs are all worth it to enjoy the walk above the clouds and to enjoy magnificent mountainous view with vertical cliffs viewd below on the glass skywalk  more »

Where to stay in Zhangjiajie

An abundance of accommodations can be found across Zhangjiajie, but the most popular with international tourists sit on either bank of the Lishui River. Whether you're looking for a luxury hotel or a simple guesthouse, the waterfront areas and adjoining streets remain the primary places to look. Ziwu Road the north of the city center also offers a range of accommodations to choose from, and good connections to the main natural sights in the surrounding landscape. To stay closer to the national park, stay in the town of Wulingyuan, located near the park's main sights.
