We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

China Danxia LandformChina Danxia, or Danxia landform, inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in August 2010, is the name of a unique type of landscapes. Danxia landform was discovered and named by famous Chinese geographer  Feng Jinglan in 1929. The word Danxia, referring  vermilion and sunglow in Chinese, is originated from a poem of Caopi (187-226), Emperor Wen of the Cao Wei Dynasty (220-265), who was also a famous poet in Chinese history. Danxia landform is formed from red sandstone (red bed) influenced by uplift, weathering and erosion, with the alternating colors of the stratified layers clearly visible on exposed cliff faces, reflecting varying degrees of oxidization. As an ancient Chinese saying describing it goes Bright as vermilion and dramatic as sunglow, Danxia landform features red cliffs, towering peaks, deep valleys, decent forest covered peak groups, dramatic caves and diverse natural pillars, towers and waterfalls.
