HERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS HARD TO BELIEVE BUT THEY ARE TRUE PICTURES.
WE KNOW SO LITTLE OF CHINA BUT WILL PROBABLY GET TO KNOW A LOT MORE. ENJOY AND SHARE!!


Yes, we had a hard time believing that this insane mountain formation was actually real, because we
haven't fallen down the rabbit hole. But, believe it or not, this technicolor range actually exists.

The mountains are part of the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in China.
Layers of different coloured sandstone and minerals were pressed together
over 24 million years and then buckled up by tectonic plates,

The formations were shaped into the flowing valleys after thousands of years of rain and wind
and the region has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2010.

Absolutely beautiful and difficult to believe they are real!
