Southwest of Kunming in Yunnan
A place in south west of Kunming, Capital city of Yunnan Province. Because of
remoteness and lack of infra structure and lodging etc. This place is not listed in
the tourist map of China.
The red land of the eastern river is a place where one almost can not find it in China’s
tourist maps. Even if there is, it has only a few words to introduce it. It is located in the
southwestern part of KUNMING, 2600 ft. above sea level, a remote area. Because of its
lack of infrastructure, transportation problem, inadequate lodging facilities. ordinary
travel agency would not think of going there.
Even the people living there are not so aware or familiar with its existing beauty. But
for those who have seen the pictures of the Red land, no one can resist being attracted
to its beautiful scenery! Just like a painting of a great magnificent landscape.
Because the soil contains such components as oxidized Iron, etc kind of
metallic minerals. after a long period of oxidation , gradually added and
mixed in the soil that produced this extra-ordinary reddish brown soil.
Here in this place, Mountains and hills , every inch of land are cultivated
and planted to the maximum by the inhabitants, Consequently causing
unwanted damage to the place… erosion.
Just like Taiwan, How long could this magnificent phenomenon exist?
We do not know. That’s why there is an advocacy of returning to forestry.
Dongchuan Red Land represents Yunnan mountain valley’s most attractive
Excursion is the soul’s relaxation and banquet.
Multicolor Waves—— five, six kinds of color mountains look like multicolor
waves, so magnificent.
Crops on the Red Land such as ; potatoes, oats, corn, oil flower vegetables,
Different color crops so arranged ,when looking from afar it seems like God
painted them on a cloth so full of gorgeous color.
Each family was distributed with different size and shape of land, Each
has its own preference kinds of crops. That caused and produced this
beautiful pieces of colors. During harvest time, the soil is shoveled up
and makes this unusually red color.
I like the countryside farms’ scenery.
In September , white color oil flowers are in bloom on the whole mountain,
It is a pity they covered up the beautiful red color. The best time for
sightseeing tour is middle of November .
The whole mountain is like covering with a beautiful colored cloth. How
I wish to lie down enjoying the breeze and looking at the ever-changing
clouds in the sky.
Early in the morning, donkey-ridden cart full of harvest transporting to
town, while a few of the children are walking in a different directions to
A melody kind of view.
Different seasons, different time, different sunlight, produce different
kind of colors.
Just like a mixing colors plate so bright and splendid.
Sunset is so beautiful but it is almost dark” The most dazzling color is
before the sun sets.
Rare opportunity to see the burning clouds, I set up my camera and got it.
Bad temper donkey did not want to work with the bull , such uncoordinated
working force., This is the first time I saw such kind of farming method and
The poorer farmer used horse to take the place of donkey. later I knew
that since different kinds of animals had different temperaments , they
were used together to control each other. If one of them refused to move,
the other one would force it . That is to increase production. I think such
ancient method could only be seen here only.
Good kid helping to harvest vegetables to bring home before sunset.
Clear sky with a rainbow after the rain.
This hollowed place is the most distinct part of the land. Later , in order
to promote tourism it was named Lexiaguo (meaning—- the place where
beautiful colors set)
A town in Lexiaguo.
Lexiaguo is full of crops that its curves and lines were made so
beautiful by the sunlight.
The curve-like crops’ lines enhanced more clearly by the red soil.
In life, sometimes we do not need to ask ourselves so many Whys’,
just do what you think you want to do.
Thanks for your patience… hope you enjoyed these pictures.
