This is the location for the filming of the Avatar Movie (2009). The view from up here is simply awesome! There are “floating peaks” all over, and hanging from above the clouds. They are the inspiration for the planet Pandora in Avatar.

The winding road in the clouds mist of Tianmen mountain national park in Zhangjiajie, Hunan province, China is not just scary but truly breathtaking if you can take in all the sights at once. Tianmen 天门 is Heavenly Gate a.k.a StarGateway.

Then there is the equally scary 326 meter or 1070 foot tall glass elevator built on the side of a cliff at Zhangjiajie Mountains. Well, just take a look at the pictures, and be spellbound. Better still, take a trip to Hunan and see and experience the real thing for yourself.
