You’d be forgiven for suspecting the colors of these hills were the work of a million cans of spray paint – but this masterpiece is all natural.
Voted one of the most beautiful landforms in China, wind and rain have chiseled away at the ancient red sandstone for 24 million years. The result? A 115-square-mile geopark painted with technicolored ridges, standing out against the green planes below.
Hike into the hills to get right into the heart of the spectacular landscape, and wrap yourself in the clashing stripes – through your Ray-Ban Chromance lenses, the contours are extreme. To bag that killer shot, visit during the drier weather between June and September – at sunset, the already crazy colors change dramatically in the glowing light.
