It is reported that the proposed Zhangye World Geopark has a total area of 1289.71 square kilometers and consists of four scenic spots: colored hills, Binggou Danxia, Zhonghua Yugu customs corridor, and nine spring plate structural suture belts. The park mainly develops the Cretaceous “red layer” from 135 million to 65 million years ago. It is formed by colored hills and red sandstones by tectonic movement, flowing water and wind erosion. The cliffs and peaks in the park are steep. It is the only composite area of  Danxia landform and colored hilly landscape in China. It is one of the earliest areas for the study of ophiolites in China. 
The proposed Zhangye World Geopark is a large-scale geological park integrating scientific research, popular science education, tourism, history, culture and environmental protection. It is very important for studying red soil topography, ecological protection and plate tectonics in the arid regions of northwest China.
