Zhangjiajie

Zhangjiajie is a region of China that is renowned for its majestic natural beauty. In fact, the Wulingyuan Scenic Area was the visual inspiration for the ethereal landscape featured in the 2009 block buster film, Avatar. The area, with its vibrant vegetation, sandstone pillars, serene waters, flora and fauna, is the main attraction at the park. Some of the park’s incredible quartzite sandstone pillars (some reach more than 2,600 feet high) in the clouds are a remarkable sight for visitors.
Wulingyuan contains three major sites: Zhangjiajie Forest Park, Suoxi Vale, and Tianzi Mountain, covering a total of 153 square miles.  Zhangjiajie is a dynamic, tourist friendly city, which has dedicated nine percent of the city or about 190 square miles as provincial national scenic spots protected by the government.

Other attractions in the area, include Puguang Temple (a combined sanctuary of Buddhism and Taoism, built in 1413), Yuhuang Dong Rock Cave, and the former residence of renowned Helong and Duxinís.
