May-This is the peak season for tourism in Zhangjiajie — the foliage is lush and green and the weather is perfect.

Summer (June-August)

June-This is considered the start of the rainy season, and coupled with college entrance examinations and the close of the school year, tourism in Zhangjiajie is a little slow in June.

September-The tree leaves are still green and the weather is perfect this time of year.

Winter (December-February)

Visitors marvel at the vibrant evergreen trees amongst the snowy landscape.

December-There is some rain this month and many of the families stay at home, keeping warm and preparing their pickled meat for the spring festival.
January-This is the coldest month with a great deal of snow. People stay at home to prepare for the New Years holiday.
