Most Amazing Rainbow Mountains You Have To Visit!
Pack your bags cause you are about to see the most amazing rainbow mountains! Where are these amazing rainbow mountains?
Is easy you can visit “them” at Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in Gansu Province, China (‘Danxia’ is the name for a type of rockform, ‘Zhangye’ being this particular location.)
And yes, you see perfectly, the most amazing rainbow mountains are real! This layer cake of amazing colours is real!
But today we going to learn a new recipe and assist to a new era of evolution. Let’s get started!
But this kind of “cake” is not easy to make, in fact it took nature 24 million years to “bake” this colourful rocksforms into a big giant “cake”. From deep red to yellow and green the highly contrasting brands of colours glow most intensely after rainfall.
With the help of the sun as an “oven” and with the help of the rains Mother Nature has outdone itself by creating this amazing landscape. As the sun sets it casts golden rays and a lacework of shadows across the big “cake”, making the visual effect even more stunning and breathtaking.
What are the other “ingredients” used by Mother Nature in creating the most amazing rainbow mountains? Take a giant spatula and start laying down mineral deposits to form the rocks, and then put them together one over the other like different colours of sand into a jar.
Let it “cook” for another hundred years and then slow ripple from the collision of the Indo-Australian and Eurasian tectonic plates shake it until the landscape turns into magnificent undulations. And Voilla! The recipe for the most amazing rainbow mountains is ready! But who knows what is going to happen in other millions of years. Until then let’s enjoy this amazing landscape and be grateful we got to see it!
The area is fast becoming a popular tourist attraction for the sleepy town of Zhangye. A number of boardwalks and roads have been built to encourage visitors to explore the amazing rock formations.
But now I am going to ask you, did you enjoy our recipe? How great are the most amazing rainbow mountains? Let’s go and visit them! Don’t forget to share and leave your comments in the section below!
