The site, www.zhangjiajietourism.us, features a wealth of information about Zhangjiajie, which is located in the Hunan Province of south-central China, and which served as the inspiration for Academy Award-winning director James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar.

The multimedia section of the site also includes photos and video of the many breathtaking sites seen in Zhangjiajie, from the towering sandstone pillars of the Wulingyuan Scenic Area, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the theater and dance of the region, and even the native macaque monkeys.
