Explore Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park

The day has finally arrived! We went to the the scenic area in Zhangjiajie, the Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park. What is there to do/ see? Cable car, the glass cliff path, climb the 999 steps of stairs and etc.

The entrance ticket, CNY 258.00.

Then we took the cable car to the scenic area.
The houses in Zhangjiajie.

The natural arch view from cable car.
Recall a scene in Avatar?

There is a total of 99 curves. 

Reached the top, well, not the highest yet.

Can you spot the glass cliff path?

It was summer in June, but in the mountains it was quite cooling.

Foggy, yes. It was a wet day.

Let's go!

Must wear these covers to protect the glass.

I've acrophobia, but I was unable to see through the class.
So it was ok, not scary to me at all.

It was drizzling.

Looking at the mountains far far away~

After walking through the glass cliff path.

Then the guide leaded us to a "shortcut" path.

Waiting for bus to go watch the natural arch!

Here we are!
There are 999 steps to the arch. I didn't take, as it was raining and I asked those that went up, the said, nothing much there.

Some people climbed all the way up to make a wish.

So while waiting other mates, I walked around and checked out the scenery.

Lunch again.
Crackers too could be a dish.



Glutinous rice and meat in bamboo.

Lao yuanzi (老院子) after lunch.

The ancient town.


The fish was nice.

Fried Udon? haha

Every meal in China, we have 2 bottles of beer, 2 bottles of soft drinks and Chinese tea served for each table.

Everyday trying different brands of beer :D

Yes, steam eggs, my fav dish!

The hotel that we stayed for 3 nights.

That's all for today. Will write more this weekend. Cheers!
