The Danxia landform is very beautiful and shocking. There are coaches in the scenic area. From the west gate of the east gate to the west gate, the scenic area is quite large. The fare is cheap and cost-effective. After we finished shopping, we fry a few dishes at the Mazi noodle restaurant in front of the west gate. The price is affordable and the taste is good.
A lot of people but big enough to escape and get your photo takeni think you need at least 3hrs to explore. Private cars are not allowed, you have to get the ticket and queue to take the Bus they organisedPaying 380RMB more to get to some curtains area but we just got in with the cheapest ticket and that was enough for us to enjoyed the beauty of its nature
the view is spectacular, you can turn around 360 and still the view is magnificent. the colors like a rainbow all in waves and it seems never ending. thanks to the authorities that they preserve this place and give future generations a chance to see how great nature is. Take my advise go towards the end of summer, late september or early october and you avoid the masses of tourists.
It’s amazing to view the colorful mountains formed over billions of years. We stayed in Zhangye and visiting this park was highlight of our trip. We went to West Bus Station and bought bus ticket to Danxia Geopark for 15 Yuan. The bus stopped right at the entrance. We took internal bus to visit 3 platforms. From what I understand, the 1st platform was closed in that period. The last platform was very colorful but so crowded. There we could see the rock which looks like a turle looking up the sky. People from 60 years old has a discount for entrance ticket so bring your passport. I think ticket can be used for the second day but you need to buy new ticket for internal bus (sight seeing bus).
A very impressive wonder of nature. Do allocate a whole day and visit both the Binggou and Qicai sections at a leisure pace. The queing system and shuttle bus logistics are smooth and convenient too. We hired a private car to drive us there and the driver will wait for us. For 5 hours, we paid RMB250.
