Mount Danxia

As every week, at the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we keep travelling around the Asian continent. Today we are giving a touch of colour to this Thursday by taking you to China to discover the amazing Mount Danxia.

Mount Danxia is part of the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park, in northwestern China’s Gansu province. It spans an area of 300 square kilometres. It is one of the four sacred Chinese mountains of Dayunwu Mountain Range.

The word danxia is the name some Chinese landscapes are given when they have strips of red sedimentary rock in steep cliffs.

Mount Danxia is famous for its colour, it is considered the most colourful mountain in the world. This particular colour comes from the erosion and from its sandstone composition. It is located in an arid area.

Precisely, the effect of the erosion caused by the weather throughout the years is also the responsible for the strange shapes we can find in this place.

These mountains are one of the main natural wonders of the world. If you like the mountain and love painting and photography, these rainbow mountains will captivate you. The best time to visit Mount Danxia and experience and unforgettable moment is during sunset.
