The Land of Avatar

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in Hunan Province, China is where James Cameron got his inspiration for creating the famous movie ‘Avatar’.

Wulingyuan Scenic and Historic Interest Area is located in The Wulingyuan District of the City of Dayong. The stone pillars that are the main attraction there reach over 1km in height!There are approximately 3,000 tall quartzite sandstone pillars.

I really, really hope to climb some of them in future, but now it is impossible. Hard to get permission to climb in a national park…

When the area is covered with dense fog and clouds, it resembles the landscape of Pandora from the Avatar movie.

In Zhangjiajie city you can see the national theatre performing a spectacular show. Acrobats, dancers, singers and thousands of tourists to appreciate their performance.

Those who don’t like temperatures above 30C can hide for an hour below the ground and enjoy the Yellow Dragon Cave.

There is also a beautiful Treasure Mount Lake, a calm and peaceful place in the mountains, where you can take a journey on a boat and listen to the songs of birds as well as singers who perform for the tourists on the way.

The whole park is majestic and beyond human imagination, but this results in it being quite busy and crowded, not what I like when appreciating the wonders of nature.

Enjoy the photos from this mysterious, charming and romantic scenery.
