Chinese RainbowBy Luca Renner
Zhangye Danxia Geopark is the largest "Rainbow Mountain" area in the world. There are more than 322 square kilometers of significant colored mountains in this area. It has been registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2009. The nationalpark is famous for its splendid stones, which are smooth and sharp, reaching hundreds of meters tall. They are the result of more than 24 million years of deposition of sandstone and other minerals. As a result, it tilts due to the action of the same tectonic plates responsible for creating parts of the Himalayas. Wind, rain, and time have shaped extraordinary shapes, including towers, columns and ravines that vary in colour, pattern and size.
