Zhidan Maoxiang Canyon 志丹 毛项沟 (大峡谷)

Location: Shaanxi Province, Zhidan County  陕西省 志丹县

The canyon is just outside Zhidan, 5-10 minutes by car from the long distance bus station. It’s close to Kangjia canyon 康家沟, another 10 minutes drive along the same road (but unfortunately we didn’t have time to go there).

Time of visit: April 2019

Unfortunately we couldn’t continue any further because of deep clay and mud, we had do turn back after reaching the middle of the canyon.
