Best and worst time to visit Zhang Jia Je in China

Best time to vist:

  • April - June: Spring time in Zhangjiajie is beautiful, lush green with cherry blossoms in the mountains
  • September to November: Fall time could be foggy at days but that also adds characters. Just avoid the 1st week of October as that's when the country goes on a longer holiday and it will be packed everywhere in China

Less ideal times:

  • Summer: high temperature and rains often, very humid.
  • Winter: freezing cold especially in January (0°C (32°F) to 10°C (50°F) . It doesnt snow often but when it does it could be quite beautiful
  • Peak period: crowded, long lines, expensive accommodation
  • July - August
  • First week of October (Chinese national holiday)


**Important Note**: check weather before going, do not climb mountains in rain or severe fog, roads are slippery
