Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park has a total of 4 observation decks, the second one is the largest, and it is suitable for watching the sunrise; and the fourth one is the most beautiful, which is suitable for watching the sunset. The first one and the third one the overtype. If you are unfortunate to meet the situation that the sun just goes into the dark cloud when you arrive at the second viewing platform, there will be no sunshine, and the Danxia landform lost color. But at the end of the third viewing platform, the sun will shine out and you can quickly reach the fourth viewing platform, where paragliding, hot air balloons, and helicopters can be experienced on the fourth viewing platform.
The sunset is infinitely good and there are many people. On the plank road, the commanding heights of the viewing platform are all full of people. You can squeeze hard on the plank road and stand at the high point and look at the gorgeous Danxia, as this scenery is really very beautiful. The opposite side of the mountain is brilliant, and the saturation contrast just like the PS. Visitors who are sure to take a glider should have a better visual experience.
The setting sun of Danxia landforms is not good, the mountains are too high, and they are all blocked. It is not as wide as the sea level. If you want to see the sunrise, you can go there earlier, as there are also many people in the morning. The ticket office at the entrance still is lined up long queues. After entering the park, just go straight to the 2nd observation deck, and arrive at the highest point of the observation deck at 6:10 a.m., to wait for the sunrise. The sun at sunrise is still glaring, but it is really beautiful.
When the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park is under the scorching sun, the color of the light and shadow is like a panoramic oil painting. When it is under the light of the rising sun, it seems to be wearing an orange coat, sparkling with different colors, and the colorful light and shadow transforms.
