***This post may contain affiliate links.***
Thousands of steps and four burning calves were well worth it to soak in the mystical land of Zhangjiajie. Known colloquially as the Avatar Mountains, the finger-like pillars of Zhangjiajie are a landform seen nowhere else in the world. Unique to this area of China, the over 3000 sandstone pillars of Wulingyuan Scenic Area in Zhangjiajie, China have been carefully crafted through the weathering of nature over thousands of years to become the natural skyscrapers we marvel at today. The area is often shrouded in clouds and mist, giving the mountains a dramatic and mysterious aura that complements their already otherworldly appearance.
