IELTS Speaking topic: A tourist site

Describe a tourist site(not from your city) you have been to.
You should say:
where it is
when you went there
who you went with
and how you felt about this site.

Let me tell you about the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park which is located near the city of Zhangye in China’s northwestern Gansu province. This place is well-known for its breathtaking colours of the rocks, which are very smooth, sharp and very tall. I went there four years ago to travel around to visit the numeric historical relics with my girlfriend in the bumpy and dusty area of Hexi Corridor.

When I got there that day, I hiked along the board way in the mountainous area in the sunny morning and stayed there for the whole day. What was really amazing was that the colours of the mountains changed continuously with the light of the day, showing yellow and red layers covered by a light grey layer. Standing in the viewing platform, I could enjoy the pictures of painted colours of endless mountains, especially during the sunset, and took loads of pictures there.

The unusual colours of the rocks were formed by the erosion of red sandstone, which made the rock layers appear in different colours, textures and size. I was really stunned by the power of nature.
