Tianmenshan Introduction

The Tianmenshan is located in the south of Zhangjiajie and is o­nly eight kilometers away from downtown area. According to historical accounts, in 263 A.D. (the Three Kingdoms period), a cave in the mountain suddenly opened and was regarded as a lucky sign by the Wu Emperor Sun Xiu. He named the cave as Tianmen, which later became the name of the mountain. In 1999, many world-renowned pilots gathered at Tianmenshan and flew through the cave with their excellent skills, making more people in the world recognize the place. The average altitude of Tianmenshan is 1,400 meters with the main peak sitting 1,518 meters above sea level. The park covers a total area of 190 square kilometers. The multiple earth movements in history and millions of years natural influences by wind and rain have resulted a unique physiognomy in the area. At the peak area of the mountain, there remains a sub-virgin forest and large areas of Chinese dove trees, which are rarely seen. Thick cirrus plants, hundred-year-old tree grow everywhere.
The best seasons to visit Tianmenshan are Spring and Autumn.
