Hallelujah Mountain, one of the mountain peaks that provided inspiration for the make believe world of Pandora in the movie Avatar was originally named “Pillar between Heaven and Earth”. Zhangjiajie is also home to minority tribes of Tujia, Bais and Miao.

Fenguang Ancient City (also known as Phoenix Town) is surely for photographers, historians, architects, urban planners. In fact for all! Established under the reign of Empress Wu (A.D.686), and through the centuries, the city grew, blending harmoniously with the mountain landscape and rivers. It is an authentic historical site, with distinctive architectural remains of Ming and Qing styles.

Reviews – Susan T

“Traveling in Zhangjiejia means traveling with 1000’s of Chinese tourists – lines to get on the cable car, lines to get on the bus, lines to get on the elevator.

We could have stayed in Fenghuang yet another day. Atmospheric, especially at night, thronged with tourists and just a photographer’s delight – all the young women in their costumes, beautiful old buildings, great shopping! “
