Explore the celestial landscape of Wulingyuan Scenic Area, where a forest of natural stone skyscrapers forms an ancient cityscape. This UNESCO World Heritage Site’s biggest draw is Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, home to the towering sandstone pillars that inspired the mythical world of Pandora in James Cameron’s Avatar. On a cloudy day, these pillars appear to be floating in the sky. South of Wulingyuan lies Tianmen (“Heaven’s Gate”) Mountain, where a gravity-defying glass walkway will make you feel as if you are walking in the sky. China’s Avatar mountains are truly a magical sight to behold.
