This site is unexpected being so spectacular ! Great for photos at sunset. The visit is well organized. The site is (almost) free of garbage which is a big performance in China !

A dessert area with typical Yadan landform. Can take the train ride to tour around the town. And you can also walk up to the hill to get a spectacular view of the town.
