There are two cable cars in the park, one near Zhangjiajie Cun that runs for half a mile up to the top of Huang Shi Zhai, and one a few miles to the east that goes near Suoxiyu Cun another half mile to a road to the north.

Zhangjiajie Park, the original name Heaven and Earth Pillar to
Avatar Hallelujah Mountain, launches wholly transparent cable car for tourists.
A scenic spot in China introduced wholly transparent cable cars for tourists to better view the mountain sceneries, in Zhangjiajie, southern China's Hunan Province.
Zhangjiajie National Mountain Park started to introduce the service from this Wednesday (September 1, 2010), and tourists can not only view the sceneries from four sides, but can look through the floor to the bottom of the valley.
The maximum height of the cable lines is 430 meters (1411 ft).
The first batch of tourists who tried the transparent car is a family of five from Shanghai. On the route, the family was so excited that they shot the whole journey, and the woman in the family was so scared in the car that she had to retract her feet all the time during the cable journey.
This time the park only changed 5 among 56 carts into transparent ones, and tourists take their chance to get one of the transparent cars.
The cable company said the possibility of taking the transparent car is 9%.
Zhangjiajie Park is well-known in China as last year it changed one of its mountains from the original name Heaven and Earth Pillar to Avatar Hallelujah Mountain.
As the Park spokesman Shi Cheng said, "We had a photographer from Hollywood here in 2008 and he shot a lot of pictures of the forest scenery - in particular the Heaven and Earth Pillar. We were then amazed to see it had become the basis for the movie's floating mountains."
