Tianmu Mountain is a mountain near Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province, China. It has two high points ("peaks"). The taller peak, West Tianmu or Xianren Peak, is 1506 meters high. East Tianmu is 1480 meters high.

Its Chinese name Tiānmùshān (天目山) means "Mountain of the Heavenly Eyes" because there is a lake on top of each of the two peaks.

There are several rare species of plants and animals on Tianmu Mountain. The only five Ostrya rehderiana trees in the world are on Tianmu Mountain.
