Danxia landforms

It’s hard to believe but these rainbow coloured spectacular mountains and cliffs do exist.  It’s a unique geological phenomenon called Danxia landforms found in several southeastern provinces of China. The unusual colours are the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits accumulated over millions of years.

The World Heritage Committee included China’s Danxia Landforms in the World Heritage List on August 1, 2010.
