> Travel > "Dinosaurs Along The Silk Road" -- Sinofossa 2009 9: Liujiaxia Dinosaur Geopark
From Lanzhou, one can also head to the Liujiaxia Dinosaur National Geopark, an amazing dinosaur track site up on the site of a mountain. The tracks are in the Lower Cretaceous Hekou Group; I think there are multiple track-bearing layers. The museum covers only one of the many track-bearing sites in the area. At present, there are only two ways to get to the museum: (1) by boat (about a half-hour ride) down and across the Huanghe (Yellow) River, or (2) walking along railroad tracks from a far-distant village (about an hour hike). We chose the boat. I regret to report that it looks like they are now putting in highway access across the Huanghe to the site and on to the village...I regret that only because I love taking the boat!
