What travelers say:

Rainbow mountains was one of my China highlights.  They are spectacular. The best time to go is the afternoon because the light is better, and ideally after its been raining. There are 4 viewing platform areas 1,2,4,5 with #4 being the best.  You must get the shuttle bus to each stop, not permitted to walk. The views are breathtakingly beautiful.  I was in awe. Make sure you got lots of room on your camera!  It can get crowded as you'd expect but there are lots of quiet spots too. It's well signposted and easy to navigate. Lots of drink vendors available including some decent coffee at stop #1. Bring sun protection as you're really exposed here. And wear comfortable shoes. 60RMB for a ticket. It's around 40KM from the city

Additional Information


The Zhangye Danxia landform was formed over 6 million years ago. It is located in Zhangye city, within Linze and Sunan counties. Zhangye Danxia is mainly composed of red gravel, sandstone and mudstone. Visitors can gaze upon its thousands of cliffs and mountains, dyed a beautiful shade of crimson. When the sun shines down on the mountains, they echo with even more fantastic colors! The Zhangye Danxia Scenic Area was the scene for Zhang Yimo's movie, "A Woman, A Gun, and a Noodle Shop" as well as the famous TV-show, "Amazing Detective Di Renjie".
