Blessed with a strategic location and impressive landforms, Zhangye has always been a thriving city. It lies on the ancient Silkroad and in the heart of the Hexi Corridor, a narrow and stretched passage that also acts as the main passageway between China and Central Asia. Admire the picturesque landscape, delve into its long history and stories; and immerse in the ethnic culture of the minorities.

Termed as a nature’s masterpiece, the Zhangye Danxia landform is an extraordinary picture of rainbow ridges. Best seen during sunrise or sunset, the sunlight cast a glow on the multi-coloured sandstones to highlight the changing colours of sun. Step into the Giant Buddha temple and be awed by the 35-metre long sleeping Buddha statue.
