Zhangjiajie Guide

The Avatar World Zhangjiajie is truly a surreal world. It is a land of sandstone pillars powering above mist-shrouded ravines, pristine waters gently flowing under dense forests, rapid thundering, birds singing and animals leaping. The scenic spots in Zhangjiajie are a lot. The best places to capture the finest scenery are Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Tianzi Mountain, Yuanjiajie, Yangjiajie, and Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park.
Zhangjiajie National Forest Park
I should use ¡°majestic, tranquil, delicate wild¡± to describe Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. It has the exquisite forests, odd-shaped peaks and rocks, beautiful canyons, the limestone caves...The famous scenic spots that photographers should not miss are Huangshi Village (Yellow Stone Village) and Golden Whip Brook.
Huangshi Village is a mesa which is 1080m above the sea level, providing the largest collection of marvelous spectacles in Zhangjiajie. It is good to photograph the panoramic view of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. There is a saying ¡°He who does not reach Huangshi Village does not pay a true visit to Zhangjiajie¡±. Golden Whip Brook covers a distance of 7.5 km, winding across mountains and valleys. Photographers could enjoy the pristine water, the verdant mountains, steep cliffs and serene valley. And also they could shoot the magnificent peaks from different angles.

Tianzi Mountain
Tianzi Mountain is at altitude of 1260 meters, providing stunning views of peaks which rise one after another. At the top of the mountain, travelers could capture the panoramic view of Wulingyuan Scenic Area. Among all the scenic spots of Tianzi Mountain, the favored spots by photographers are the Imperial Writing Brush Peak (Yu Bi Peak), Fairy Maid Scattering Flowers (Xian Nv San Hua), the Mid-Air Farmers¡¯ Cottage (Kong Zhong Hua Yuan), Nod-to-the-General Platform (Dian Jiang Tai), etc.
There are 84 viewing platforms. Photographers could catch the best chance to capture the four wonders: the Sea of Clouds, the Radiance of the Moonlight, Rays of Sunshine and the Snow in Winter. The day after the rain is the best time to photograph the sunrise and the sea of cloud. And the best place is Tianzi Mountain Upper Cable Station.
The famous Yuanjiajie lies between Huangshi Village and Tianzi Mountain. It is the shooting place for the movie ¡°AVATAR¡±. Many amazing lesser peaks and grotesque rocks stand in the valley and possesses its own peculiar shape. Photographers could take gorgeous pictures of the First Bridge under the Heaven, Hallelujah Mountain and more sites.
The First Bridge under the Heaven is the natural stone bridge stretching across thin air between two mountain peaks. It is the highest natural bridge in the world. Hallelujah Mountain, called South Pillar of Heaven, is a single, very imposing peak standing erect, seemingly reaching to the sky. It is the Hallelujah Mountain appeared in the film ¡°Avatar¡±.
Yuanjiajie is a pristine area with all the features of Yuanjiajie and Tianzi Mountain. It is the new area good for photography. This scenic area has unique peaks, cliffs, as well as clear streams and brooks and waterfalls. Photographers could shoot Tianbo Manshion, Oolong Village, Corridor the Cliffs, Natural Great Wall and capture the awesome sunset in One Step Under the Heaven.
Laowuchang is more pristine than the other parts of the park with many odd-shaped peaks. Photographers could walk and shoot Fields in the Sky - terraced rice paddies on the top of the peaks, and Supernatural Army Gathering , about 100 peaks standing in the valley orderly, Couple Waterfalls and some other sights.
