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.
