The scenic ares has 5 platforms corresponding to the most exciting vista points. The mountains are full of unbelievable colours, changing tone depending on the height of the sun; extraordinary is the sunset! Remarkable is the organization with a continuous flow of buses carrying thousands...More

Nice place to visit. I'd recommend to walk there (and not take shuttle bus), if you have time. But as everywhere in China, a lot of people. Btw stay overnight in nearby yurts, KaoShan Luxury Tent (just 600m from west gate).

Wow, totally amazing. Get here in the morning to see the colours light up - it was a little wet and cold so take some warm clothes just in case. I went on a Friday and it was relatively quiet. After buying entrance ticket there...More

It is really an interesting place, but not amazing like on pictures! Please, note the important nuance - the colours are really bright like on pictures only after the rain! So when you plan a trip there, keep this fact in mind to recieve the...More

From the west station of Zhangye ("xi zhan") you can take a public bus for 10 yuan. It takes about 1 hour, the entrance fee is 40 yuan plus 20 for the bus which is, of course, mandatory, and brings you between an observation point...More
