Zhangjiajie now is a perfectual city of Hunan Province, and its toal area is nearly one-third of that of Taiwan, including a renowned Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, in there it provided the outdoor scenes for that famous Hollywood movie with huge box-office success: Avatar.
Certainly, almost every tourist has been attracted to Zhangjiajie by its reputation as a hot scenic spot, we are too. At the parking lot in mid way toward the peak, we rode on cable cars to some platform, the "entrance", from where we started our hike in the park. By contrast, during the 28-minutes cable car riding, people can get a general, or birds-eye view of those huge, grotesque rocks standing up in the mountain valleys, but when they walk along the trails within the valleys, also a section of a two-km "十里畫廊" by tram, all of the rocks we saw were nothing but gigantic Karst crags. Funny thing was, the tour guides on the trams gave every rock a romatic but imaginary name. So imagination is all people need to view such a scenry, because they are "只緣身在此山中"
Therefore, like I have always said, the best way to view landscapes is through poem or travelling literature, which would give artistic lives to those beautiful but static existences, not through our eyes or cameras.
