Rock Formations of Zhangye Danxia – the Most Colourful Place on Earth
We have recently written about the most amazing corners of China in the previous article. However, the place you are going to see right now is truly worth writing a separate article about. It is the incredible rock formations of Zhangye Danxia.
You may have seen some caves of 5 million years old or animal fossils that have been decaying for 10 million years under our earth. Now, it actually took 25 million years for this place to form in China. Pretty amazing, huh? Nowadays it’s an attractive place for tourists. It is a great example of petrographic geomorphofology. Through all these years Zhangye Danxia was affected by such weather conditions as water flow fissures, erosion, oxidization and tectonic plate movements.
