Zhangjiajie

Zhangjiajie is a popular tourist attraction in Hunan, a province in China, known for its breathtaking mountains covering 9,518 kilometers squared. Many attractions weren’t designed for the faint-hearted; the elevators are really long and are extremely fast. It’s also a good idea for those who are aerophobic to avoid the glass walkway. Many say that the best time to visit it is at sunrise or sunset when the early morning mist is around the mountains.

Zhangjiajie houses many several endangered  such as the Chinese salamander, the Chinese water deer and the clouded leopard.

Fun fact: the floating mountains in Avatar were inspired by the mountains in Zhangjiajie.

Much lies in the heart of the heart of the world, but the heart lies in Zhangjiajie.
