China – Jiuzhaigou Valley Scenic and Historic Interest Area

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park

Becoming the first National Forest Park in China in 1982, Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is also a UNESCO Global Geopark. Located in Hunan Province in central China, it is famed for its 3,000 sandstone pillars that dot its landscape. It’s here that you can explore gorges, ravines, waterfalls and streams, and admire the scenic beauty that inspired the scenery of the movie “Avatar”. The most famous park in the Wulingyuan Scenic Area, its lush foliage and pillar-like formations are the result of years of natural erosion and can be enjoyed on a day of hiking, mountain climbing or on a photography tour.
