Look out toward the sweeping rainbow hues of Zhangye Danxia Geopark, a national park known for its unusual rock formations. Set in the northern foothills of the Qilian Mountains, the rock formations' multicolored palette is due to deposits of sandstone, slowly eroded over hundreds of thousands of years. Make your way via the park's sightseeing cars to four carefully placed viewing platforms. Due to the absence of nearby shops, bring water, as well as a scarf to protect your face from strong sandstone winds. Morning and early evening offer the most dramatic views.

For photographers, I advise you rather to go late in the day in the morning, you will get advantage of a less aggressive light or do the morning and in the evening if you have time! Ride a bus from Zhangye, as in all of China, it is easy to use public transport and they are many.
I was very skeptical about the extremely bright colors of pictures of Danxia Landform on Google. I was sure that they were touched up. So when I actually saw it, my jaws dropped in amazement! I went i... more »
