D32***01Highly recommend! The road is paved now so it only takes one hour each way. Bus doesn’t always run outside the high season (starts May) but you can still go to the West Bus station (before 9am) and see if anyone wants to carpool. Standard rate for a car is 240. Enjoy!

D36***95we took the Highspeed train from Lanzhou to Zhangye and continued by Car to the Mati Temple and Grottos. It was an amazing experience and good lesson in chinese history. make sure you calculate enough time for your visite if you plan to go all the way up to the top Grotto. whilst you there you must try the local lamb, i am not a fan of lamb but it was absolutly delicious no small of lamb. also try the local beef (Mau Neo)

_We***00Incredible grottoes and beautiful vistas. Recommended to go from Zhangye South Bus station and the driver will take you there and bring you back the same day. It is worth climbing to the top of the stairs to the viewing platform as well. Beautiful scenery, fresh air and relaxed vibe.
Binggou Danxia Scenic Area

Geological Sites
D33***59This was a very interesting place to visit, and less busy than the Qicai scenic area. From the sightseeing platforms, you can see far into the distance to snow-topped mountains. The different shaped landforms were fascinating, and to see them on such a vast scale high up was amazing. Definitely worth visiting Binggou as well as Qicai if you're going to Zhangye.
Mt. Yanzhi Forest Park

_We***75April fragrance of the world, should be bright, grass green water clear April, but the Wuzhi Mountain is still snow, silver snake, embroidered another scenery. The snow scenery of the mountains and the frozen streams is still mingling with happy music, accompanied by the sound of pine waves, various birdsongs, winds, and the snowflakes flying in the sky, interweave together, beautiful. This feeling, it seems to forget their own existence, as if it melted into it, the joy does not return. Beautiful, who does not yearn, who does not miss? Come on dear friend, so beautiful scenery, missed a pity!
