Things to Do in Zhangjiajie in October

Admire the View in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is known as "home of the Avatar mountains". October is the best season to enjoy the autumnal colors. You can see fall scenery all around while hiking in the park.

You can see giant sandstone pinnacles rising skyward from the valley floor - some up to 200 meters tall with tufts of evergreen shrubs clinging to their narrow summits.

Visit Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge

Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge has become a hot attraction since it opened. It is the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge, with a length of 430 meters (1,410 feet) and a height of 300 meters (984 feet). You can walk on the bridge to prove your courage.

Visit Tianmen Mountain

If you have no time to visit the glass-bottomed bridge in the Grand Canyon, you can visit Tianmen Mountain, which offers three glass-bottomed skywalks built along the cliffs of the summit.

Another highlight of the mountain is the world's longest cable car extending over 7 kilometers from downtown Zhangjiajie to the top of the mountain.

Experience the Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second biggest holiday in China. It's on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese lunar calendar. It occasionally falls in early October near the October 1st National Day holiday and becomes part of the "golden week" holiday. 

You can not only taste various moon cakes but can also have a chance to see lantern exhibitions.

Peak Travel Season

October is a peak travel season in Zhangjiajie. Pleasant weather, the autumnal scenery, and the National Day holiday attract a large number of tourists to Zhangjiajie. If the Mid-Autumn Festival is also in the month, the crowds are greater. It is highly recommended to book as early as possible. 

Hotel rooms might cost twice as much as they do in the low season and tickets for flights are more expensive. If you book in advance with us, we can help obtain excellently chosen accommodation and convenient touring using our experience. Why waste your time waiting in queues at crowded gates and attractions?
