Dongchuan Red Land, Kunming

#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.

  • A mix of all colors in the Red goes on much here. A bit away from Kunming. Especially in May and June are the best months to be seen.

  • Dongchuan Red Land is good, the Earth in the dale, listen to the guide said the soil inside are rare minerals. The food at the farmhouse is good. The shelter is clean and sanitary, the sunset and the rising sun, the scenery wonders. It's worth visiting.

  • 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 »
