The Stunning Mountain That Inspired Avatar's 'Floating Peaks'

There is a place in China where your breath will be taken away for hours. You will feel like being inside the Avatar movie surrounded by fantastic Pandora world and floating mountains. This place is called Zhangjiajie and it is located in Hunan province, China. Zhangjiajie is famous for its stunning mountains where the American blockbuster Avatar was filmed. If you have watched the movie, you should be able to imagine the beauty of this place. Nevertheless, watching a movie and experiencing it yourself in real life are two different things. Once you stand in front of the floating mountains you will be knocked out by its power of beauty. When it gets foggy the mountains look like they were slowly floating in the air and then falling to the ground. Don’t worry, no mountain will fall on your head, and there are no flying monsters, the rocks stand solid on the ground.

You can see this World Heritage Site in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. It takes pproximately 3 days to fully explore the area without missing anything important. The heights will leave you speechless, walkways on vertical cliffs built 800 meters above the ground. Thankfully you won’t have to climb it, there are cable cars, which connect the town with the mountain range. Chinese claim it’s the longest one in the world. At one point you can find yourself walking on the glass so look down, if you dare!
