Huangshan and Hallelujah Mountains Of Pandora, Avatar

February 23, 2013 by  

Huangshan and Hallelujah Mountains Of Pandora, Avatar, The Hallelujah Mountains on Pandora are overgrown with foliage at the top and straggly beards of vines hang down beneath the mountains like the roots of air-ferns. Their sides are sheer cliffs. Waterfalls, originating on the mesa-like tops, stream down the sides and disperse into spray at the bottoms, like upside-down geysers. Since these mountains are digital, James Cameron said that it was the Huang Shan mountains in China that inspired him to make the Hallelujah Mountains, which would explain the similar appearance.

Director Cameron had noted the influence of the Chinese peaks on the design of the floating mountains. On January 25, 2010 in China, hundreds of locals in ethnic Tujia costumes “officially” renamed the Qiankunzhu mountains after the Hallelujah Mountains as a tribute to Avatar. After this, there has been split opinion whether the Hallelujah Mountains have been inspired by the Huang Shan Mountains or the Qiankunzhu Mountains.
