Number 1 choice over rainbow mountains!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Arguably better than the rainbow mountains and much quieter! A great place to spend a few hours with incredible scenery! Great value for money, and worth paying extra for the buggy ride. The ticket included golf carts around the full park, a go on an army duck, camel ride (although I refuse to do this on principle) and walking scenic routes. Staff were all very jolly and helpful! Was lovely being somewhere so beautiful without many tourists!

Wow!

I can’t believe I had never heard of this place before researching my trip to Zhangye. What an AMAZING and beautiful place to visit. Since I don’t have a Chinese drivers license and haven’t been back to my home country in a few years, paying the 100¥ to drive an ATV for a bit was well worth it. Climbing all the stairs for the views is well worth it at the second to last stop (I think it was the first stop after the off-road adventure). Bring water bottles with you…I assumed I could buy some once inside and was wrong. Definitely worth a trip!

Amazing Binggou, by public transport.
Nov 2019 • Couples
There is a bus from Zhangye West bus station. It takes 45 minutes to Danxia and another 15 to Binggou.

For the way back we can confirm that, at the time of writing, there were buses at around 13:40 and 14:40, so probably they go hourly.
The buses also stop at Danxia color mountains, if you want to combine the visit.

Also, in October, there were no regular taxis waiting to take you to Danxia color mountains or Zhangye city. There are however shady taxi drivers, that ask whatever they want. They tell you that there is no bus, which is not true.
In our case the bus was approaching as he tried to convince us that there would be no bus.

I recommend Binggou over the color mountains. In October it was almost deserted, and the strange structures and the snow peaked mountains are breathtaking.

Unique rock formations

Apart from Danxia National Geological Park (Rainbow Mountain), this is another value added advantage to drop by this sightseeing place which is nearby, to see the various rocks formation.

A spectrum of earthly colours
Oct 2019
Very scenic mountainous area, with flowing lines of earthly colours going through many of the mountains, hill, and ridges.

About 10 km from Rainbow Mountain Park
Sep 2019
It's a very different geological park than the Rainbow Mountains. The mountains are made into all kind of shapes due to changes in time. It seems to be pretty new in terms for opening to tourists. At this point it has two bus stops where you can walk around on man made trails and of course many stairs. It looks like they are building more stops/platforms for tourists.
We actually encountered some wild life in that park which is quite an experience traveling in China. They really were just some kind of Gerbils or mice kind of rodents. But really cute to watch.
It can be hot, so bring enough to drink. I don't think you can buy anything inside.
Entrance fee regular RMB 80, Senior discount RMB 40 with passport, 60 +
It works as in all Chinese parks, buy your ticket, scan your face and ticket and get on a bus.

Crowds can be avoided. Bring water with you and head-dress. Many beautifull landscapes without crowds.

I went here as part of my cycle trip through gansu. Completely different landscape to danxia(rainbow mountains) but definitely equally as impressive.

busses take you directly into the park. then you can walk on your own or with a group. easy walking/hiking. very very impressive landscape

Fantastic Landscape
Sep 2016 • Friends
We visited this park the day after visiting Danxia. I felt that this was the better of the 2. A bit more rugged, more climbing, less riding a tour bus.
There are 2 main sections of this park that you walk through. A lot of stairs to climb but well worth it. Bring a hat for shade but be sure it's one that won't blow away as the wind can be strong at the top of the hills.
Arrive early and miss the crowds & the afternoon heat.
We caught a bus from the village just outside Danxia, it was a short ride, I believe we paid 6rmb a piece. We caught a bus back at the village just down the road from Binggou.

Interesting natural geological formations

Smaller than the more famous Zhangye Geopark this area offers more shapes and fewer colors. A trolley will transport you from the entrance and it's easy to walk through the park on the stairs and pathways.
There are several signs in Mandarin and English explaining some rather weird and fanciful things you're supposedly able to see in the rocks.

Surprisingly there's very good free wifi coverage in the park.
