Luliang Colorful Sand
Luliang is famous for its rich colored
Sand Forest. The Sand Forest was formed thousands and thousands
of years ago while this landscape used to be an ocean. The
current attraction covers an area of about six square kilometers.
Unlike the common beach sand, the Luliang
Sand Forest is a combination of sand and stone that cumulate
as prominences and mounts. The glory of reflection from
the sunshine reproduces a magnificent view of its distinctive
character quite like the Stone Forest, but a finer version.
Due to the nature of a mixture of mud and sand, the hills
and mounts have an extraordinary cohesive force making it
possible for sculpture artists to create complicated works
and statues for the annual International Sand Sculpture
Festival. Young artists from America, Canada, England, and
France join together with Chinese performers to exercise
their creativities with broad imagination.
