National Park
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.
