These colourful mountainous slopes in China make us want to run for the hills

Somewhere in China’s Gansu province is Zhangye Danxia, an unusually colorful national geopark located in the northern foothills of Linze and Sunan counties’ Qillian Mountains.

The rock formations are treasured for their vibrant hues, the result of sandstone and mineral deposits that have piled on and been sculpted by the elements over 24 million years. Nature sure is amazing.
