Our wonderful planet has plenty of beautiful and intriguing natural features, and you’re sure to find at least one in any country you happen to visit.
China is a vast country, and as you might expect it has its fair share of exotic natural features.
One of the most beautiful and intriguing of them all is the “Painted Landscape” of Zhangye Danxia Geopark.
Of course the rocks and hills of Zhangye Danxia aren’t really painted at all. Those incredible colors are completely natural!
The colors and designs in the rocks are actually due to the various minerals that are embedded within them.
I hope you find this place as beautiful and intriguing as I do.
If so, I recommend that you check out the short video below for a birds-eye view of its awesome landscape.
