Pandora is Only 15 Hours Away


Some people in China may be afraid of Avatar's popularity, but not officials in Zhangjiajie, who have just renamed a local mountain the "Avatar Hallelujah Mountain." According to the city government, the mountain was used as a model for Pandora's floating Hallelujah Mountains. Next time you're in the Hunan province with some time to kill, swing by Zhangjiajie and take the "Magical tour to Avatar-Pandora" or a "Miracle tour to Avatar's floating mountain." As the city's website puts it, "Pandora is far but Zhangjiajie is near."
