Hi Paypel, thanks for your inquiry. We are still not sure when the Glass Bridge in Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon will re-open. We can cover Yellow Dragon Cave for you, had already sent the itinerary to your emailbox, please chekc it. Thank you

We are planning a trip in June. How much time should we expect to wait in line for the cable cars and Bailong elevator? For the 3-day tour, it is based on people coming in the morning Day 1 when most flights arrive at night. If we come in at night, how does the 3-day tour work then?
Asked by Joan (Feb.16, 2015)

Trip advisor (Feb.16, 2015) replied:
1/It depends when you choose the date visit Zhangjiajie. Normally in July and August is peak season which can\'t avoid to line in to wait for cable car and Bailong elevator. For off season, it won\'t take much time to get into cable car and elevator. 2/If you take flight from shanghai to zhangjiajie then you will match our 3 days itinerary. 3/Most of flights arrival in Zhangjiajie are evening flight. so if you travel date are very tight which the only option is cut off one scenery spot which we suggest to cut Huangshi Village.
