Devil City

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/2

The Wu’erhe Devil City ranges from northwest to southeast. It’s about 5 kilometers long and 3 kilometers wide. It covers an area of about 15 square kilometers. It’s made up of a series of separate mesas ranging nearly from northwest to southeast. The Devil City belongs to typical Yadan landform. It was formed under the influence of wind power and fluviation. Because of the cutting of running water and the carving of wind power, all kinds of bizarre shapes were formed on the stratum of the cretaceous period. Some like castle, ship and pavilion. Some like person, animal and mushroom.

The Devil City is located in the draught. It’s windy all the year around. Whenever gale comes, yellow sand covers the sun. The wind howls and shuttles back and forth in the city, sending out all kinds of eerie sounds. It seems ghosts had woeful and shrill calls. It’s horrific. Therefore, the city gets the name of the Devil City.

Well, I have traveled Devil City last year. I found that the scenery there is very strange. So after I came back, I search some information about Devil City. It is reported that in former Cretaceous period of more than 100 million years, Devil City is an enormous Lake. This gives me the reason why I saw so many fossils of sea creatures in this area. Devil City was covered by weird-looking rocky structures. Some take the shape of Buddha, animals, human beings and even temple and ghosts. When strong wind blows inside the "city", it generates some horrific sound just like the crying of devil. I think that this would be the reason why it is dubbed Devil City. I think that this trip to Devil City was very interesting and exciting because of the horrific sound there.
