About this place

The Ya Dan National Geological Park---- 'Ya Dan" is Uygur language,which means precipitous statues. The Ya Dan Geological Park is away from city about 185 km. Local government is applying this as the Ya Dan  World Geological Park.Over thousands of years ago it is a big sea over there. Because of earth crust movement the ground rose up and the water in the sea flew away.Then some mud piles appeared as the bottom rose up.After many years the hard earth sculpture came into being,which look so beautiful.The sculptures  look like the Heavenly Altar,Sphinx of Egypt,Mushroom Cloud, peacock ,many fleets, Middle aged Castle, and so on. It is also a very good place to take photos and make movies. Many famous movies were shot here.
