The glass bridge by itself is interesting and we really wanted to see it. In reality the experience was disappointing. First, its about one hour away from the Wulingyuan, so plan your day accordingly. When we got there, it turned out that you cannot purchase ticket in the ticket office (very odd). They helped us to buy tickets through wechat.... More

I was really looking forward to seeing the bridge! I drove 2.5 hr to get there, went through security, queued in line to buy tickets (not so busy) I watched the man in front of me pay 110 yuan (give or take) and show his ID. So I take my passport out and put down 110 yuan and she asks... More

I am not sure the Canyon would be known if Mr. Haim Dotan had not constructed there his marvelous bridge. Must see!

The glass bridge was great...but not as impressive as I had expected. Apparently they have a 500 person limit on the bridge at any one time...rubbish! Apparently they only sell a certain number of tickets a day...rubbish! The bridge was jam packed with people (mostly Chinese tourists). There were queues upon queues to get a ticket and then to get... More

Not only its attractive landscape - which it is scenic and picturesque - everything you can possibly imagine in a fairy-tale setting - is the must-visit to the world's new record of the longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge in Zhangjiajie! A real challenge for the faint-hearted! The trip is worth a million memories!

The views are lovely and the boat was "authentic" (I guess). The boat ride was peaceful but a little too short for the price. There were some building structures strategically place in the water where a singer dressed in local garb would step out and sing and wave. I can't decide if that was corny or charming. We also decided... More

Visited here today on a Thursday and arrived via the local bus around 9am. No issues with collecting tickets that weren't reserved and it wasn't difficult to get the local buses from zhangjiajie. 138 yuan to get in and see the bridge as the canyon itself is currently closed. Wasn't overly busy until we came to leave then there were... More

When I went there in end Sep, I was disappointed that only the glass bridge was open while the Grand Canyon was closed. The staff there could not ascertain when it will be open again. Such is life. The consolation was that it was off peak season, hence there wasn’t too crowded and no queue to the glass bridge. Also... More

We are just back from there today (Sept 30th 2016) - and I can only add some small elements to the pretty comprehensive review by sprabs that shows as being done "Reviewed two weeks ago" as I look at it now. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g494933-d2465954-r417042609-The_Grand_Canyon_of_Zhangjiajie-Zhangjiajie_Hunan.html If you are not a Chinese speaker there are a couple of things to take from the review...
