About Zhangjiajie and Avatar Hallelujah Mountain

Many of you may or may not know, Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is the prototype for various elements in the movie ‘Avatar,’ including the ‘Hallelujah Mountains,’ which has recently been renamed from the “Southern Sky Column.”

Avatar is a 2009 American science fiction epic. The film is set in the year 2154, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na'vi—a sentient humanoid species indigenous to Pandora

The site was first visited by Hollywood photographers in 2008 and many pictures became the prototype for the hit movie “Avatar”. Standing 1074 meters above the sea level, the stunning peak is said to have inspired to create the floating “Hallelujah Mountains” on the fictional planet of Pandora.

The Chinese tourist bosses has renamed this mountain to bring more tourist to the Zhangjiajie City. Zhangjiajie City is a relatively new name to China adopted in 1994 after the National Forest park in the Wulingyuan Scenic Area in order to give more prominence and after being designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. The name Zhangjiajie can be translated to “Zhang family homeland” from the three Chinese characters; Zhang being a common surname in China, Jia as family, and Jie as homeland.

Its soaring steeple of rock topped by a small oasis of trees looks straight out of the 3D blockbuster Avatar.

But this is no special effects illusion; it's a real-life tower of quartz-sandstone deep in the rugged mountain terrain of southern Hunan in China.

The 3,544ft Southern Sky Column is one of 3,000 in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park and became the inspiration for the magical 'floating peaks' in James Cameron's film. The movie's director said during a press conference last December that the "Hallelujah Mountains" were modeled after Huangshan Mountain in China's Anhui Province. He said he sent his crew to the site during preparations for the movie's alien planet scenes, but later that month a Chinese Internet user reported the original model for the mountain was not Huangshan but the South Pillar of the Heaven in Zhangjiajie. He made the determination by comparing photos of the South Pillar of the Heaven and the movie's "Hallelujah Mountain". The "Hallelujah Mountains" in the movie is modeled after the South Pillar of the Heaven, on which a major cameraman for the movie spent four days shooting photos.

A national park spokesman said: 'Many pictures become prototypes for various elements in the 'Avatar' movie, including the 'Hallelujah Mountains'.' Now as film fans flock to see the column, the column has had its named officially changed to 'Avatar Hallelujah Mountain'. With Great Wall Adventure Club tourists can now join a 'Magical tour to Avatar-Pandora' or a 'Miracle tour’ to Avatar's floating mountain.

Come to Zhangjiajie to see the Avatar's Hallelujah Mountains and discover the real world of Pandora!
