Tianmen Mountain boasts the longest cable car route in the world, 7,455 meters. You will take the cable car up to the top of the mountain in about half an hour. You will have a really thrilling experience, soaring high above the city, countryside, villages and the mountain through the sky. It’s like a wonderful journey into a fairyland.
After getting off the cable car, you will walk to the serene Tianmen Temple. Built in the Ming Dynasty, the temple is the Buddhist center of western Hunan. A lot of Buddhist followers come to pay respect to Buddha. You can wander around to appreciate the beautiful architecture and take in Buddhist culture.
Guess what will come next? It is not for the faint of heart, but if you are the kind of person who thrives on excitement, you will love this part very much. It’s the glass skywalk extending from the cliff, 60 meters long and 1.6 meters wide. Its highest point is 1,430 meters above the sea level. You can’t imagine how it was built. Please do not try to climb over the railing.
After experiencing the scary skywalk, you will go to admire a natural wonder, Tianmen Cave. In ancient times, people believed that it was the gateway to heaven. It is also a place where miracle happened. In December 1999, famous aerobatic masters successfully flew through the cave. Since then, it has attracted many extreme sports enthusiasts.
At the foot of the cave is the 999 steps. You can either walk down the steps or take the escalator (at your expense). It is not suitable for the elderly, little kids and those with heart problem, bad knees and who are scared of heights.
At last, you will take a shuttle bus down the mountain via the winding road with 99 bends. It’s an extraordinary feat of engineering. The local government invested a hundred million yuan to build the road. Please rest assured that the drivers are very experienced. Then we will transfer you back to your hotel.
