Subject: Fw: Rainbow mountains in China.....MIND BLOWER
Yes, we had a hard time believing that this insane mountain formation was actually real, because we haven't fallen down the rabbit hole. But, believe it or not, this technicolor range actually exists.
The mountains are part of the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in China. Layers of different colored sandstone and minerals were pressed together over 24 million years and then buckled up by tectonic plates, according to the Telegraph.
There's a similar formation in British Columbia called the Rainbow Range formed from a mixture of volcanic rock and various minerals.
The formations were shaped into the flowing valleys after thousands of years of rain and wind, and the region has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2010.
absolutely beautiful and difficult to believe they are real ___
