The rainbow mountains of danxia gave us one of the most breathtaking experience. The vivid colours are said to have been built up due to mineral deposits over a millions years ago. The colours are very magnificent and catchy in the eyes of a person.

We visited the park on may and it proved to be the best time to visit the area since the weather seemed to be favorable with little or no rain. Zhangye also offers one of the most delicious foods in china. We tasted their traditional snacks which were made with powders such as the saozi noodles which made us keep begging for more. The food were not only delicious but they were also cheap and affordable. In addition to the food wine is also available in the area. We were offered three different types of wine ranging from the yellow wine,rice liquor and south liquor. The different wines have their own purpose for different occasions. The yellow wine are used to celebrate weddings while the south liquor keeps our stomach healthy and the rice liquor softens our arteries. Visiting the Danxia landforms was one in a lifetime adventure.
