This 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.

Binggou Danxia Scenic Area, located in Sunan Yugur Autonomous County of Zhangye, is a natural scenic spot with red palace-type Danxia landform as its main feature. Compared with the Danxia Landform Scenic Spot in Zhangye (also known as the seven-color Danxia), the color of Danxia is relatively simple and has little change, but the biggest feature is that the shape of Danxia Landform here is very unique, with various styles of modelling, and the scale is more spectacular.

Binggou Danxia is mainly composed of sandstone landform and relic landscape, with Chibi Qianquan, steep and upright, magnificent momentum and miraculous danger. Its shocking effect is beyond our expectation and can be said to be a feast for the eyes. It is no inferior to several national parks in the western United States, such as Blaise Canyon and Zion National Park.

As we all know, there are two Danxia in Zhangye, one is colorful Danxia, the other is glacier Danxia. But which one is better? This problem has been a major concern for many people. In the recognition of many friends, the so-called Zhangye Danxia refers to the seven-color Danxia in Zhangye. It is famous for its color, with red, orange, yellow, green, white and other colors. The most beautiful time of the day is when the afternoon sunset sets. At this time, the sunset is like fire and the Danxia is like wow. The photos are also gorgeous and beautiful. Glacier Danxia is not as famous as colorful Danxia. Generally, travel agencies seldom arrange to come here. Glacier Danxia is famous for its unique shape. Its color is mostly earth red, and almost no other color can be seen. But here Danxia Mountain is rugged, strange in shape, like castle, like camel, all kinds of strange. Danxia glacier ditch is suitable for watching sunrise, whenever the morning sun rises, the sunlight scattered on Danxia Mountain, particularly noticeable. So there is a qualitative difference between the colorful Danxia and the glacier Danxia. If you have enough time, I suggest you go to visit both Danxia mountains. If time is limited, you can choose according to your own too good!
The bus ride from Zhangye West Bus Station costs only 12 yuan and takes one hour to arrive. The day we went was sunny. Last night, we had the first snow in Zhangye. The ice trench was very beautiful. It arrived near the middle of the trench. The sun was like a desert. The snow on the shade did not melt white. It felt very strange. Climbing on the viewing platform, the air is very fresh. The snow mountain in the distance is white under the sunshine. The driver in the scenic area is very good. He talks with us very happily. He sings a beautiful folk song of northern Shaanxi to us. It's a perfect experience.
Zhangye's glacier ditch Danxia landform is not as gorgeous as the colorful Danxia, but it is better than the landform's momentum and shape. When our car did not reach the scenic spot, I was in the car wow wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wo After entering the scenic area, the environmental protection car first took us to the small Xitian scenic area, then took a bus to the big Xitian. I was so excited to see all kinds of landforms along the way. I saw the shocking scenes, but I would be thrilled if only we shared them. Several typical viewing platforms of colorful Danxia need to be snapped, but here on the contrary, any landscape belongs to you. How long do you want to take it, no one will disturb you? All kinds of strange stones here are full of reverie. The most classic one is the Phantom of Louvre. There are photographs as evidence. Friendship reminds you to wear sunscreen.
The Danxia Scenic Spot in Zhangye Glacier Valley mainly looks at various stone shapes. The scenic area is divided into two scenic areas, Xiaoxitian and Xitian. All kinds of shapes are lifelike, but the tour guide says that with the change of natural conditions such as rainwater, the old shapes will disappear and the new ones will come into being. It's a bit like Xichang's Tulin scenic spot. Arrive around 4 p.m. and visit the scenic area without any obstruction. Suggested people should do sunscreen work well.
Most people go to Danxia in Zhangye and all go to colorful Danxia. In fact, Danxia in this glacier ditch is quite good. National Geographic magazine's comment on the most beautiful seven Danxia landforms should refer to this. Colorful Danxia looks at the color, and glacier Danxia looks at the shape and the situation.
