    I spent a wonderful Lanzhou tour with my family. We visited many cities and experienced different sceneries and landmarks.

    The Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park impressed me most. It was an ingenious artwork made by nature. Every mountain had its unique colors. Some mountains were so colorful that they looked like rainbows.

    That’s so specular. There were four viewing platforms in the colorful hills which were good places to overlook the beautiful hills and take photos.

    The guides arranged a reasonable itinerary and explained it in detail. The guide in Lanzhou adjusted the itinerary timely according to the weather so we didn’t miss any scenic spot. I saw a roll of multicolored mountains in the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park. That’s awesome! There were numerous beautiful and well-preserved murals and statues in the Mogao Grottoed. I enjoyed a visual feast. All in all, the 6 days trip to Lanzhou, Zhangye, Jiayuguan, and Dunhuang was so fantastic!

    A worthwhile Lanzhou tour! I enjoyed every scenic spot on this trip. There were Tibetan-style buildings and many Lamas in the Labrang Monastery. I could see the local people plunged themselves to pray and worship. I was so moved! The other sites were also very amazing as well as the natural scenery along the way.

    The scenery of the Northwest regions in China was so vast that it broadened my eyes. The itinerary was reasonable and many famous scenic spots were included. I had a good time on the Lanzhou tour. It is better to take enough water and food if you are going to ride for a long time.

    The itinerary of 4 days tour of Lanzhou was tight but didn’t make me tired. I learned much knowledge about Buddhist culture especially Tibetan Buddhism in the Labrang Monastery. I could also feel the power of the local people's devout faith. I recommend this tour to those who want to know Chinese Buddhism culture.
