This is the view from the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in the Gansu Province, China. The natural colourful rock formations have been 24 million years in the making and the colours are formed by the presence of red sandstone and mineral deposits. Due to tectonic plate movements, erosion and strong winds, the terrain looks unbelievably surreal.

Six of the landscapes have also been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
