Picture of the Day: Zhangye National Geopark

After a four hour drive from Wuwei, Gansu province, we arrived in Zhangye. Its most famous natural landmarks is Zhangye National Geopark.


We got onto the park's tour buses that act like hop on, hop off buses that take visitors to four main locations in the 322 square-kilometre park.


Each place we went, the landscape seemed even more amazing. The place is known as "rainbow mountains" for the multicoloured hill formations due to erosion of the red sandstone that revealed other minerals of different colours.


The weather was not too hot and we enjoyed the amazing scenery formed by nature.

  1. The landscape looks familiar. I have a feeling that it's featured in a lot of Chinese movies... ;)
