Dongchuan Red Land, Kunming
(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Kunming attractions like Dongchuan Red Land can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 从昆明自驾车去东川红土地,走的是国道,途径一些小镇,里面狭窄坑洼不平,有部分道理在修路,路标指示也不明确,不建议走这条路线,有高速可以过去,建议提前做好攻略。东川红土地非常值得一看,锦绣园是一个最佳观赏和拍照的地点,另有一个盘山道上没有名称的地点,可以停下车来,取景拍照很不错。整个东川红土地景区没有合适的用餐地点,路边有当地特色烤土豆,如果敢于冒险的话,可以尝尝,反正辣椒酱是可以杀菌哒! 
  • We went to Dongchuan with the suggestion of my photography friend. The area is very photogenic and with our guided tour, we were able to catch all the highlights we should have.
