Travelista Club – Nature’s Miracles: Avatar Mountains In Zhangjiajie, China

When we happen to think about China, the first image that comes to mind is of romantic mountains surrounded by curly clouds and tiny temples with upward-pointed roof corners; some other times we imagine large metropolis, skyscrapers and crowds wearing anti-pollution masks.

Yet China is much more. In its territory as large as a continent it’s possible to find different climates and landscapes: from the Ice festivals and the Siberian cold in Manchuria to deserts and grasslands in Inner Mongolia, from the windy Tibetan Plateau to dry depressions in Xinjiang and to the humid tropical weather in the South-East. In this article I am going to focus on a little, almost unknown corner far away from everything we have heard of China, an alien-like piece of nature, so special that inspired the film director James Cameron to set over there his movie “Avatar”: The National Forest Park of Zhangjiajie.
