Zhangjiajie Mountain in China aka Avatar Mountain

This was my third time visiting Mainland China – and I still haven’t been to Beijing, the Great Wall, or Xi’an to see the Terracotta Warriors. (one day~) But on this visit, I was lucky enough to join my parents on their tour to Zhangjiajie – better known as the Avatar mountains in the Western world. The beautiful and surreal landscapes in the movie was actually inspired and filmed here in China. There were modifications and edits – making the movie mountains floating in the sky – but China did not fail with its unique and awe-inspiring mountains.

  1. This is so beautiful. I am planning a trip to China right now and Zhangjiajie is actually our main destination. We’re planning on taking a flight from Beijing there. As Europeans who do not speak Chinese is it possible to get around or will we have a lot of difficulties?

    • Zhangjiajie is beautiful! You’re going to love it. As for getting around, you will definitely run into some challenges with the language barrier but in the more touristy areas, there is more English instruction and access so you should be fine. Especially at Zhangjiajie, I noticed many other Europeans there enjoying the mountains as well. I’m sure you’ll have an amazing time!
