How to take a ride on the world's longest cable car in Zhangjiajie
The world's longest cable car, 7455 meters long, passes over the Zhangjiajie National Park, and leads to Tianmen Mountain.

Cutting clouds, the cables sweep over the park, which became the prototype of the fictional planet Pandora from the movie Avatar. A kilometer in height pillar (a hanging mountain in the movie) was even renamed by the authorities in Avatar Hallelujah. Take a ride on the cable car, passing a hanging mountain as if you are na'vi (Pandora resident) mounted a dragon.

The journey over the forests and mountains of Pandora will last 35 minutes until your cabin arrives to the final stop - Tianmen Mountain.

How to do?

1. The starting point of the cable car (Tianmen Mountain Cable Car Company Station) is 8 kilometers southward from Zhangjiajie city by the 104 Country Road take a bus buses 1A, 1B, 10A or 13.
2. The cable car can carry up to 1000 passengers per hour, but in high season (spring-autumn) there are still big queues. In winter, there are fewer tourists, and more chances to catch foggy weather - the opportunity to cleave through the clouds.
