The landscape is presented in multi-colors, such as red, yellow, orange, blue, white and grey. Some mountains look like a watercolor painting while others like a Chinese brush drawing. Being in such a wonderland, you will feel like you were in a fairy tale.

Danxia landform is created by red-colored sandstones and mud stones. It was listed as one of the 10 most amazing geographic wonders of the world by the National Geographic magazine in 2011.
