Tianmen mountain

Up in the clouds

After yesterday's adventure we stayed a little bit more close to home this time. We took the cablecar that goes right next to our hotel to the top of Tianmen mountain.

This cablecar is marketed as the longest in the world with a distance of of nearly 7.5 kilometers (it takes about 30 minutes).

At the top of the mountain there's a pathway around the top of the mountain. Some parts are made of glass.

After an ok lunch we started on the second part of the loop.

In the distance you can see the walkway along the ridge.

We were nearing the end of the loop and the weather improved a bit. While it never rained there we lots of clouds and the forecast wasn't great (50% chance of rain).

After taking many escalators down, we were nearly at the end of our trip, all we had to do is go down these stairs...

After a short stop at the hotel, we headed out for dinner and called it a day.
