Zhangye Danxia Geopark

Zhangye Danxia Geopark Zhangye Gansu
In the Zhangye Danxia Geopark, there is a landscape that exists only in China which is offered in the eyes of travelers. Colorful land since millions of years, ochers mingles sediment to create an exceptional panorama to the tunes of "Alice in the Wonderland”. It's not for nothing that some of these landforms are listed in UNESCO.

China extends over so large that the landscapes offered are extremely varied. A hundred kilometers away from Zhangye is a place apart where photographers are having a heart joy. In the Zhangye Danxia Geopark, mountain peaks began to form between two tectonic plates there 24 million years! With the erosion of sediments were deposited on the rocks in strata that have gradually taken earthy colors ranging from yellow to red. These ridges and streams are now clearly visible and represent an exceptional landscape that is observable in China.  

Some of these rock landforms are such an attraction that they have been listed in the UNESCO. Internal buses allow the site to wander among the rocks and make stops at the most beautiful views. So for now, you'll be in front of multicolored mountains and sometimes you will overlook this colorful landscape. Although the photos submitted by photographers online are often touched up, the landscape is still beautiful in reality.
