i wiuould like to know if it is easy to get around from one place to another?

---- Easy, but most spots is accessible only by walking. You need a very good & detailed map and know where is able to be reached by viehcle, where not, where is the main entrances. Standard time spending in this large park is 3 days. Ticket is valid for 3 days now. At least 2 days is a must. You'd better overnight in the town of Wulingyuan.

For seeing sunrise: Da Guan Tai (大观台) of Tianzi Shan (天子山).

is the shuttle bus still in service during winter?

---- Sure.

thanks for your great help.

do you know if i need to get a taxi to tian mun shan 天門山?

i was discussing my plan with a guide tour hours ago.. and she claimed it was impossible for me to see sunrise by this time of the year

as the ticket office only opens at 8am during "non peak" season

if i stay in wulingyuan.. that means i cannot go up to the spot and watch sunrise?

OK, then overnight at mountain top of Tianzishan, you have right to do this as long as they won't tell you that local tourism authority doesn't allow tour company book guesthouses somewhere. So tell them you will definetly see sunrise.

I think you have already awared that Tianzishan and Tianmenshan are two different places. Tianmenshan is very close to Zhangjiajie City (not Wulingyuan town). Take a taxi, 10-20 Yuan.

Hi, i am a local guy. As my experience, it is hard to see sunrise/sunset during winter.It is true.Most of the time , weather would let you disappoint.Summer is much better than winter.

Worse than Guilin? I haven't seen sun for nearly one month.

Hi OrientalRed,

You mentioned the ZJJ ticket is valid for 3 days now, is it the same cost then? Thanks

Amazing but exhausting is all I feel about Zhangjiajie.

To OrientalRed, MCqueen:

Since when the ticket is 3 days? It used to be 2 days.

But it does not matter how long you stay inside the Zhangjiajie if you stayed inside for nights. They do not check ticket when you go out. You can stay for 1 week or more if you want...
