Dongchuan Red Land, Kunming

4.6
#1 of 31 in Wildlife in Yunnan
Known as the "Gods' Palette," the colorful fertile terraces of Dongchuan Red Land attract visitors and photographers throughout the year. The lands extend for nearly 50 km (31 mi) in vibrant colors of yellow, green, and brown, depending on the type of crops planted. Hike through the fields and admire the crazy whirlwind of colors mixing with the clear blue sky, white clouds, and mountains. The land remains partly undiscovered, with a scarcity of facilities like hotels, restaurants, and shops. Nonetheless, local accommodations provide a soothing, rural atmosphere full of warm hospitality.

  • If you have the chance to drive/get a minivan to go there, you won't regret that choice. The scenery is amazing. From Kunming, it takes around three hours by car.  more »
  • Nice but not in the right time. At the end of February show only the ground) that is not so red as in the picture that memories over the internet. So miss the color contrasts. Nevertheless it is worth.
