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.

    It was the last thing that I visited on my trip to Yunnan, unfortunately only was one night and half a day, because if you really get to know the beauty of the place it would have been me two days. The people of that area is quite nice. It is worth getting up early to take photos and discover the colours of the Earth, though sometimes on the internet the colors are too saturated. It is a place to walk around their fields and visit small villages. As says our driver that the best time to visit the area is between the months of December and January because according to the land acquires stronger tones, although you can get quite cold

    It is only beautiful, maybe, when nothing crowing there. Too much tourists making photos of a farmer with his goats. The accommodations are also poor.  more »
