About:Zhangjiajie Travel

Surprising Information about the national park!!!

We went to Zhangjiajie from 3. till 6. of July. What we never read before about the park are the following facts.
The entrance is 245 RMB for 3 days where only the bus transfer in the park is included. Surprisingly was that there are a cable car and a elevator which is NOT included in the entrance fee. Means if you go there you can use either of this transportations to go to the peak which costs, the elevator 72 RMB one way. The cable car is more expensive. Notice it is only one way!
You could walk up to the peak which takes about 2-3 hours depending how fit you are in walking stairs. We walked up amd down once. If you dont feel like walking you have to take the cable car or the elevator. Means the following. If you go there on 3 days you pay
245 RMB entrance fee + first day
+ 72 elevator one way to go up
+72 elevator one way to go down
second day the same if you use the cable car its gonna be more expensive. Third day its again the same.
Shortly speaking in total its about 700 RMB without tour guide and any other expenses!!!

There are student prices for students younger than 23 which is a bit ridicolous, most of the students are above 23....

In fact the national park in Zhangjiajie is amazing and worth to go. No one of us regret to go there. However the costs for every single transport is according to us cheating the visitors. And moreover you never read something about this in any travel information!!!

Enjoy your trip and be aware of the costs.....

Hi Markus, thanks for the info! Can you tell me what else we can see in 1 day in the Park? My mother and I will be there in September and I simply must photograph Avatar Hallelujah Mountain and need a few more things to shoot besides that. Got any suggestions? I'm looking to photograph something really unique in the area (I see the photos at my local crafters market back here in Canada and my customers really like scenery they don't normally see so that's why Avatar Mountain made our list). Don't need to shoot waterfalls or streams (we got lots in Canada) but unusual rock formations and mist and always a hot seller. I'll be using those pricey cable cars and Bai Long Elevator to conserve energy (we're older ladies). Any help would be appreciated. Proly going to hire a guide with a private car to scoot us around too.
