Zhangjiajie Tianmen Mountain Road

Yongding District 2014/07/31 View:6111

The Most Spectacular Road in China–Zhangjiajie  Tianmen Mount is the highest mountain in Yongding District, Zhangjiajie City, with a main peak of 1518.6 meters. It is just 8 kilometers away from Zhangjiajie urban area. Tianmen Mount is famous for its natural wonder Tianmen Cave. In ancient times, Tianmen Mount was called Songliang Mount and was the earliest famous mountain written into annals of history.

In May, 2005, Tianmen Mount sky way was completed finally. This sky way which is called heaven-linking avenue has 99 turns, directly drifting into sky. Thus “The most spectacular road” turned out splendidly. In September, the world’s longest mountain cableway—Tianmen Mount sightseeing cableway was also completed. This cableway has a length of 7455 meters and has an altitude difference of 1279 meters. It straightly gets to the top from downtown, just like a rainbow.

Generally, heaven-linking avenue is dangerous. It crookedly passes through mountains and cliffs. After walking through this heaven-linking avenue, senior vice chairman of Chinese Calligraphy Association Shen Peng joyfully inscribed four words for it, which integrates with amazingTianmen Mount Road.
