Surah Al Fathir (Creator), Chapter 35 verse 27 narrated :


  أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ ثَمَرَاتٍ مُخْتَلِفًا أَلْوَانُهَا
وَمِنَ الْجِبَالِ جُدَدٌ بِيضٌ وَحُمْرٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهَا وَغَرَابِيبُ سُودٌ (٢٧)

Do you not see that Allah sent down water from the sky with which We  brought forth fruits of diverse hues? In the mountains there are white and red, of diverse hues, and pitchy black;

Mountains : White, Red & Diverse Hues & Pitchy Black

Al Quran has informed this  natural phenomena  14 centuries ago, however many people  still do not know the beautiful natural phenomena of colorful  mountains in Zhangye Danxia, Gansu Province, China.

Prophet Muhammad SAW  has never been to China?  The revelation comes from Allah, The Creator.

The Zhangye Danxia landform is also known as the eye candy of Zhangye. Many artists admire this masterpiece as it appears like a perfect painting on canvas. This 400-square-kilometer attraction is located in in Linze (临泽县) and Sunan (肃南) counties in Gansu Province in central north China. It is composed of lots of precipitous cliffs, most of which are several hundred meters high. All of these cliffs are smooth and sharp, standing in the plains and riversides, looking grand and magnificent, vigorous and virile. Even the low pinnacles look powerful.

Geologists believe that Danxia topography is formed as a result of movement in the earth’s crust. This makes rock layers appear in different colors, textures, shapes, sizes, and patterns. The combination of differences in density and erosion creates towering peaks, cave holes and stone halls.

Danxia formations are green, yellow, blue and many other colors, though their appellation comes from the red rocks of Mount Danxia in Guangdong. Experts say that they are the result of red sandstone and other rocks undergoing metamorphic processes for millions of years.
