How about spending a few days in a fairytale? Or in a real-life movie? There are some places in the world where it is possible. One such place is called Zhangjiajie, located in the Hunan province in south-central China. Around the city of Zhangjiajie, there are a few fairytale places: the national forest park Wulingyuan, where the movie Avatar was shot; Tianmen mountain with its famous glass planks; Baofeng Lake with incredible waterfalls; some amazing ancient villages.
There are just so many things unbelievable and surreal about Zhangjiajie that it has inspired countless fantastic tales. Take for example the towering quartz-sandstone pillars of Wulingyuan. It doesn’t take much imagination to see how these columns have served as inspiration for the floating mountains of the Hollywood blockbuster AVATAR. The sea of clouds rolling in between the mountains majestically paints a picture of a world alien but absolutely breathtaking. It’s one of those sights that leaves an imprint on the heart of the beholder. It’s the kind of experience that can change your life.
