Tian Men Zhan

I will be arriving at Zhangjiajie( ZJJ) around afternoon from Changsa on Monday. Not sure whether to visit Tain Men Zhan the next day(Tuesday) or at the end of our trip ( Either it will be Saturday or Sunday and will stay at Zhangjiajie city) (Haven't book my flight ticket yet). Planning flying back to Guangzhou at 7.30am flight to catch a connecting flight.

If I will to stay at Wulingyuan area for the whole trip, is there any transport to airport consider that my early flight at 7.30am.

Hi, as your departure flight is in the morning, why not last night stay Zhangjiajie city hotel?visit Tianmen mountain last day ,also the next day morning go to airport very near and convenient. if you all days stay wulingyuan hotel, you will spend more time and money on the bus and taxi. also if stay wulingyuan hotel catch early flight only can take a car or taxi which need arrange in advance.

Agree with #1. Spend the last day at Tianmen Mountain and the last night in Zhangjiajie city. You don't want to be traveling from Wulingyuan hotel to catch an early morning flight from Zhangjiajie airport.

I can help to arrange car for drop off to Zhangjiajie airport from Wulingyuan if needed.

I can suggest a hotel,Zhangjiajie Jiesuminjia Cultural Inn,which located not in the center of downtown,but just taxi distance from airport or Tianmen mountain cable car,located in quiet residential area at foot of Dali mountain,2 minutes walking distance from this hotel to river,the location by the river just face the right front of the Tianmen mountain hole(this angle can enjoy the biggest hole),and with refection of the mountian and hole on the river,that's where local photographer take photos of Tianmen mountain/hole/river. Can also climb on the top of Dali mountain which just behind the hotel to enjoy the hole and local farm with vegetables growing,only 3 minutes climbing. Here also finished the new road construction(Ziwu Road West extension),which by the river 42 meters wide new road,you can do bicycling for 6 km by the river and enjoy the river and mountain view on the way...

Personally I think this is what you can do after or before visit Tianmen mountain,stay in Jiesuminjia hotel to explore ZJJ city natural scenery. From ZJJ local guide Chris.

on Tianmen mountain quite cool,even the city at foot of mountain 38 degrees. either day good,but make sure you got the A ticket,which cable car up and bus down,means you queue for cable car first about 30-45 minutes then no more queue(bus fast,almost 0 queue),if take B ticket bus up queue,then cable car down will be big trouble as lots of B ticket sold(bus carry many people in the morning,as A ticket cable car take up limited people ),would queue for 2-3 hours for cable car down,many people don't want to wait then give up take cable car then do C (bus up and bus down),missed the beautiful view from cable car.

Suggest do in the morning,as when queue in the morning not hot and have enough time for the mountain.Tianmen mountain can do 4 hours also can do 6-7 hours,depend on you speed and how much walking are you going to do.

Those 3 coming days tickets from agency already sold out,then many people queue for tickets in tickets office,be there earlier would be better.If for other days agency still can find the ticket and book ahead of time.
