Rainbow Mountains In China's Danxia Landform Geological Park
August 1, 2013
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.
Here's a photo showing some detail of the rich "layer cake" action going on.
There's a similar formation in British Columbia called the Rainbow Range formed from a mixture of volcanic rock and various minerals.
While the photos are certainly incredible, there could be some slight photo manipulation going on to make the colors pop a bit more than they would naturally. This Flickr photo could be a more accurate representation, but still, the mountains are amazing.
