The Zhangjiajie stone forest paradise of Wulingyuan had caught international attention due to the success of the movie Avatar. The scenic preserve consists of karst landscape with some of them reaching over 800 metres tall. The rocky pinnacles of karst, with more than three thousands of them covering Wulingyuan, merged from a spread of dense vegetation. Also home to endangered animals such as clouded leopard and giant salamander, Wulingyuan has been classified into UNESCO world natural heritage in 1992.

Because of the movie ‘Avatar’ success, the originally named Southern Heaven Pillar is now called Avatar Hallelujah Mountain 阿凡达 哈利路亚山. It is a 1080m-tall pillar, as tall as the [to be](still under construction) tallest building in the world – Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia.

The Zhangjiajie Forest Park is quite vast and the core attractions are widely spread. For fast trip it will take 2 days and if you would enjoy the trek and experience all of them, 3-4 days are required.

The entrance ticket lasts for 4 days. So even you are just staying for 1 day, you’ll have to pay for 4 days ticket. The ticket is linked to your fingerprint when you first enter the park. Reserve enough time for this visit.
