Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is a unique forest park located nearby Zhangjiajie City in northern Hunan Province in the People's Republic of China. The most notable geographic features of the park are the pillar-like formations that are seen throughout the park. Although resembling karst terrain, this area is not underlain by limestones and is not the product of chemical dissolution, which is characteristic of limestone karst. They are the result of many years of physical, rather than chemical, erosion. Much of the weathering which forms these pillars are the result of expanding ice in the winter and the plants which grow on them. According to park officials, photographs from Zhangjiajie inspired the floating Hallelujah Mountains seen in the "Avatar" film.
