In the morning, transfer you to the Zhangye Danxia Geopark in Linze County. It is one of the areas with the largest and best Danxia landform development and the richest landform modeling in China, and it is a typical representative of China's colorful Danxia, with high scientific research and tourism value. Known for its colorful rock formations, it has been voted by Chinese media outlets as one of the most beautiful landforms in China. 


Zhangye's Danxia was formed by the erosion of red sandstone, forming isolated peaks and steep stratified outcrops. Its special geological structure, combined with long-term desert conditions , freeze-thaw peeling, and wind and water erosion gave rise to its present appearance.


There are four large viewing platforms located within the park which are all connected by shuttle bus. Each platform offers a different landscape with stunning views of the Rainbow Mountains. The bus ride that cuts through gorges and along dried up riverbeds is also impressive. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like you can hike off on your own within the geopark, but outside it should be possible.
