Yadan National Geological Park, Dunhuang

(4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the bus ride around the distinctively shaped rocks at Yadan National Geological Park. The bus will take you around the geopark to several different viewing points, where you can enjoy the view and take pictures. The park covers an area of 398 sq km (154 sq mi), with its rock formations having developed over a period of 700,000 years. Make sure to bring sunglasses and a mask or a scarf to protect your face from the wind, which blows sand across the park. Bring your own food and water, as you won't find many dining options at the park. Add Yadan National Geological Park to your Dunhuang travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Dunhuang trip itinerary planner.

  • 第一次看到如此壯闊的景像,想到了迚美國的大峽谷,不少人選擇擇在這裡欣賞日落,但離市區大約二個小時的車程,想看日落的要有夜歸的準備。門票包含二門票與遊覽車票(兩張都得買)園區巴士每半小時一班,進入景區一律乘坐巴士,會載你到每一個景點,算是輕鬆的行程,但正中午的敦煌很曬,大家可得有心理準備。
