Train Travel Tips

The journey duration from Zhangjiajie to Chongqing is only about 5½ to 6½ hours. Most trains will arrive at their destination on the same day.

If you disembark from a Yangtze River cruise in Chongqing and then plan to travel to Zhangjiajie by train, please book a train that’s departing after midday.

Generally speaking, passengers can disembark from the cruise boats after 09:30. However, you have to leave enough time to get from the cruise pier to the train station and may also need to collect your train tickets at the train station.
