Participating countries on a trip to China for the “Seminar for Directors on Festivals and Arts from Developing Countries” were astonished to see various mountains displaying different colours from different views.
The mountains, known as, Danxia Mountain Park in Zhangye Province of China, were informed that the hips on different locations have attracted many tourists from different countries who want to have a look at this wonderful natural creation.
When one climbs the mountain, it may give him/her a green colour and when the tourist goes to have a look from another mountain nearby, it will change to either brown or red colour, just in the same way as all the mountains exhibit different colours at the same time.
The Chinese government has created an enabling environment for tourists to climb to the top of mountains in a less cumbersome way by constructing fanciful and solid pavements; thus, tourists can climb the mountains and have a close view.
With this, the Chinese government is having bumper revenue generation every year from tourists from all round the globe; it also creates jobs for the citizens.
Among the tourists from Nigeria were Mrs. Jane Anigala (Assistant Director Admin, NICO Abuja – team leader), Mrs. Chioma Duru (Zonal Coordinator, NICO South-East), Mr. Nnaemeka Nwajagu (State Coordinator, NICO Enugu) and Mrs. Susan Ogohi (NCAC).
