Ticket C is only used in the afternoon. If you want to visit the bridge in the morning, you need to buy the Ticket B even though you don't want to see the canyon.

You need to book a ticket in advance from the official website or through a travel agency, as no tickets are sold on the spot except for discounted tickets for kids, students, and senior people.

The official website only accepts bookings made with a Chinese identity card number. Being a foreign visitor, you’d better book through a travel agency.

How to Tour Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge

Zhangjiajie glass bridge

1. Visitors can only take mobiles and small-sized bags on the bridge. There is a luggage storage area before the check-in entrance where you can leave your belongings for a fee.

2. If you plan to visit both the glass bridge and the canyon, we recommend you to visit the glass bridge first to avoid the detour.

3. The tour trail is one-way. The entrance is on the mountain and the exit is at the bottom. To retrieve your baggage, you have to return back to the entrance after your tour.

To save time and energy, you are recommended to go there with just your wallet, passport, smartphone (or snapshot camera), and a small handbag.

4. The glass bridge is very popular with visitors from home and abroad. It is crowded most of the time, especially during national holidays. We recommend you start your day early and try to arrive before large bus tour groups.

5. Check the weather in advance as the glass bridge is likely to close in severe weather.

6. Do not attempt it if you have heart problems, high blood pressure, or a fear of heights.

There are three glass skywalks in Tianmen Mountain Scenic Area, which is about 85 kilometers away from Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge.

Different from the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge hanging in the air, Tianmen Mountain Glass Skywalks are built along the edges of the mountains' summits, clinging to the vertical cliffs at a height of over 1,400 meters (4,600 feet).

Similar to the glass bridge, the glass skywalks will give you a thrilling feeling, like you are walking in the sky. If, unfortunately, you do not get a ticket for the glass bridge, you can try the glass skywalks.
