Onlookers gather as Swiss tightrope walker Freddy Nock attempts to scale the 690 meter-long cable car line
on Zhangjiajie mountain, using only a balancing pole, in central China's Hunan province. Nock failed in his
attempt after completing only 200 meters up the cable to the majestic peak previously known as “Heaven and
Earth Pillar” or “South Sky Pillar”, but has been officially renamed “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain,” after it was
believed to have inspired a floating mountain, one of the most dramatic images in the futuristic adventure
movie Avatar.   AFP
