Zhangjiajie National forrest: - Avatar's floating peaks inspiration.The Zhangjiajie National Forest Parkis a unique national forest park located in Zhangjiajie City in northern Hunan Province in the People's Republic of China.In 1982 it was recognized as China's first national forest park (4,810 hectares). Zhangjiajie National Forest Park was designated a much larger (397.5 km��) Wulingyuan National Park by the State Council on August 1, 1988. In 1992, Wulingyuan National Park was officially recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was then approved by the Ministry of Land and Resources as Zhangjiajie Sandstone Peak Forest National Geopark (3,600 km��) in 2001. In 2004, Zhangjiajie Geopark was listed as a UNESCO Global Geopark. The most notable geographic features of the park are the pillar-like formations that are seen throughout the park. They are the result of many years of erosion. The weather is moist year round, and as a result, the foliage is very dense. Much of the erosion which forms these pillars are the result of expanding ice in the winter and the plants which grow on them. These formations are a distinct hallmark of Chinese landscape, and can be found in many ancient Chinese paintings. Avatar film's director and production designers said that they drew inspiration for the floating rocks from those mountains including those in the Hunan province.

Jiuzhaigou National forrest: - Known in English as Jiuzhai Valley it lies at the southern end of the Minshan mountain range, 330 km (205 mi) north of the provincial capital of Chengdu.In the Aba Tibetan Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of northwestern Sichuan province, near the Gansu border.he remote region was inhabited by various Tibetan and Qiang peoples for centuries, but was not officially discovered by the government until 1972. Extensive logging took place until 1979, when the Chinese government banned such activity and made the area a national park in 1982. An Administration Bureau was established and the site officially opened to tourism in 1984; layout of facilities and regulations were completed in 1987. The site was inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1992 and a World Biosphere Reserve in 1997. As of 2004, the site averages 7,000 visits per day, with a quota of 12,000 being reportedly enforced during high season.

Dujiangyan Dam is an irrigation infra-structure built in 256 BC during the Warring States Period of China by the Kingdom of Qin. It is located in the Min River in Sichuan province, China, near the capital Chengdu. It is still in use today to irrigate over 5,300 square kilometers of land in the region.he Dujiangyan along with the Zhengguo Canal in Shaanxi Province and the Lingqu Canal in Guangxi Province are known as "The three great hydraulic engineering projects of the Qin Dynasty".After the system was finished, no more floods occurred.
