A friend recommended I watch this Chinese language video 航拍西藏 2018 (Aerial photography in Tibet) and the HD drone video of scenery is stunning.
After about 37 minutes into the video, there are shots of these tall 3D structures that I don't understand at all. The shapes look familliar and remind me of something I think I saw in California, perhaps the Anza-Borrego desert in California, but it was nothing like this.
I'm told that the area is called 札达土林 in Chinese, and that seems to be Zanda County in Tibet
What is it exactly that produces these amazing 3D layered and ridged structures in China, and what are they called?
