  • icon
    3. What is the best time to visit Zhangjiajie?
    icon

    The best time to visit Zhangjiajie is generally during the spring (April to May) and autumn (September to October) seasons. During these months, the weather is pleasant with mild temperatures, blooming flowers, and vibrant foliage, providing excellent conditions for outdoor activities and sightseeing. The average temperatures range from 15°C to 25°C during this time, making it comfortable for exploring the attractions.

    Spring, specifically April and May, is a popular time to visit Zhangjiajie as the mountains and forests come alive with colorful blossoms, creating a picturesque and enchanting landscape. It is also less crowded compared to the peak summer season.

    Autumn, from September to October, is another favorable time to visit Zhangjiajie. The weather remains pleasant, and the foliage transforms into stunning shades of red, orange, and gold, providing breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys.

    It's important to note that Zhangjiajie can experience some rainfall throughout the year, so it's advisable to bring appropriate rain gear regardless of the season. Additionally, it's recommended to avoid visiting during major Chinese holidays like the Labor Day holiday (May 1–3), the National Day holiday (October 1-7), summer vacation of July and August, when tourist crowds are at their peak. The low season is winter when there is snow on the mountains, offering a different scenery for you to explore.

    Within 2 to 3 days, you can immerse yourself in the stunning natural landscapes of both Wulingyuan (world heritage) and Tianmen Mountain.

I Left My Heart In Zhangjiajie

I'm a Singaporean traveller who booked a private solo tour. I chanced upon AOT after I googled and decided to travel last min. My planner from AOT named Rita was very patient towards all my request and changes, she is knowledgeable and provided excellent advice for my 8 days trip arrangement from Shanghai, Zhangjiajie N Chongqing. Although there were very minor hiccups just like any overseas holiday, it was still a well planned trip.

I would like thank all my tour guides and drivers (师父) for looking after me so well. Special mention to Zhangjiajie Tour Guide named Ms Rita Wang, she looks after her client with her sincerest heart into the smallest details such as eating habits and my lifestyle. (Example: Turning A/C on knowing we Singaporeans can't live without A/C in car & also I don't even have to look at menu to order food becos she knows what I want to eat) Also thank you 杨师父 who tagged team with Rita, he is a very good skilled safe driver and knows how look after me during long haul journey drive inter cities.

I would strongly reccomended anyone who wants to travel to look for Rita or her colleagues from Asia Odyssey Travel.

Lastly, thank you to all whom I've crossed path during my trip. I'm grateful to all people in China for the warm hospitality. 感恩大家的招待和爱。

Zhangjiajie in China - Amazing Mountains!!!
Our trip to Zhangjiajie was an extraordinary adventure that exceeded all my expectations. This destination, famous for its towering sandstone pillars and awe-inspiring landscapes, left me speechless at every turn.
The Zhangjiajie National Forest Park was the highlight of my trip. As I hiked through the lush forests and made my way up to the mountain peaks, I was rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views. The iconic Avatar Hallelujah Mountain, featured in the movie, seemed like a surreal masterpiece of nature. The mist-shrouded valleys and deep canyons created a mystical atmosphere that transported me into another world.
One of the most exhilarating experiences was walking along the Glass Bridge, suspended high above the stunning Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon. Stepping on the transparent floor and gazing down into the abyss gave me an adrenaline rush like no other. The sheer beauty of the canyon, with its cascading waterfalls and lush greenery, was truly mesmerizing.
Exploring Tianmen Mountain was another unforgettable part of my journey. The cable car ride to the mountaintop offered breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes. The famous Tianmen Cave, also known as Heaven's Gate, was an architectural marvel that left me in awe. The sheer size and grandeur of the cave were simply breathtaking.
Throughout my trip, I was captivated by the rich cultural heritage of Zhangjiajie. Visiting the ancient town of Fenghuang allowed me to immerse myself in the traditional architecture, local customs, and colorful markets. I had the opportunity to taste delicious local cuisine and interact with the friendly residents, who were always eager to share their stories and traditions.
I highly recommend adding Zhangjiajie to your travel bucket list. Prepare to be amazed by the breathtaking scenery, challenged by thrilling experiences, and enchanted by the rich culture and history of this remarkable destination. Zhangjiajie will leave an indelible mark on your heart and create memories that will last a lifetime.
