The Zhangye Danxia Landform in China is a testimony to the fact how nature can create something unusual which is appealing to the eyes. The color is due to the accumulation of mineral deposits as well as red stones for more than 24 million years.  The unusual pattern of the mountain is the result of rainfalls and winds.

The place is today one of the leading tourist destination in the World.
