From Yuanyang Terrace to Dongchuan County on Dec. 6, we took the east line high-speed. It was difficult to run at the high-speed near Kunming. Most of the cars were blocked and the whole journey lasted more than 600 kilometers for 12 hours. It takes more than five hours for Kunming to reach more than 150 kilometers of Dongchuan. It is suggested that in Kunming, we should take the special line of Jiaozi Snow Mountain and go back to Kunming for less than two hours. Red earth scenery is beautiful, no tickets. Suggestion: Luoxia Valley can only see the sunset in October, because the sunset just falls from the direction of the canyon, will not be blocked by the mountains on both sides. Seven-coloured slope and beautiful garden are the same scenic spot. One is to watch from a high place and the other is to be in it. They are quite shocking.

Dongchuan Red Land, I will come again!
A one-day tour of Dongchuan Red Land by chartered train from Kunming in December failed to produce the best light and shadow effect of the red land because of the rush of time and the overcast weather. But when we arrived at the Louxia Valley, the combination of various spots in front of us can only be described in two words - shock. Kunming is nearly 400 kilometers from the Red Land. Although it's a long way to go, it's a worthwhile trip to enjoy such beautiful scenery.
The best time to shoot scenic spots is from mid-May to early June and mid-late October to November. Located in the east to the north of Kunming City, it belongs to the Red Land Town under the jurisdiction of Dongchuan District of Kunming City. It's naturally red soil. Ordinary farmers farm all kinds of crops at will, and immediately weave into a water-colored, colorful watercolor painting. Although the season we go to is not the best, the beauty that comes into your eyes is still amazing, suspected to be supernatural.
The chartered train departed from Kunming and arrived at Dongchuan Red Land in about four hours. The warm and humid environment in Yunnan makes the iron in the soil of Dongchuan District of Kunming slowly deposit through oxidation, and gradually forms a dazzling color. The area with a radius of nearly 100 miles is the most concentrated, typical and distinctive red land on Yunnan laterite plateau. Although there was no blue sky, white clouds and unpredictable light, the scenery was spectacular enough. Zhang Dongxiang, 79, is the image spokesman of Dongchuan Red Land. He said he was an ordinary old farmer in Red Land, but he was also a big star, and the star with the highest rate of acting. The old man runs an inn, but more often than not he sits by the roadside to let the tourists take photos, creating a kind image of the old man on Dongchuan Red Land. He tips tourists at will regardless of their remuneration and chats happily with them even if they don't.
Dongchuan Red Earth is a palette made by God, which is colorful. November and May are different. Luoxia Gully, Luozhiwan, Damakan and Jinxiu Garden are good shooting spots. Luoxia Gully and Damakan can shoot sunrise and Luozhiwan can shoot sunset. Accommodation is very convenient. It feels that Luoxia Valley is the best place to stay, beside the scenic spots of Luoxia Valley. Boss Chen of Luoxia Gully Photography House is a photography enthusiast. He will recommend new shooting spots. The people are very good and the accommodation fee is not expensive. It's better to have a surprise one or two days after the rain.
Dongchuan Red Land, a very famous place, is also worth visiting. There used to be an expressway from Kunming, about two hours away. Dongchuan didn't need tickets. There were many parking lots where people could park and take photos. But sometimes the local mother-in-law would come to collect money. Even if she stopped for only one minute, she would collect five yuan and ten yuan. Of course, there would be no money. There would be signs on the roadside. Red earth is very beautiful, especially standing at a high altitude overlooking the entire scenic spot, very spectacular, if enough time, you can also go to the edge of the field to slowly turn around, it is also very comfortable.
About 160 kilometers northeast of Kunming, arriving in 3 hours by car. It is said that the best month for photography is January, May, September and November, when there were more color blocks, which were even more beautiful than now. Although it's not the best time to take pictures, it's amazing that the two grandparents are local stars and have become local postcards [happy]. We were lucky enough to live in the inn run by the son of the grandfather's house with sheep [naughty]. In the evening, the landlady took us to the top of the mountain to watch the sunset in the local lodging standard room 70-801 nights, and the inn was mentioned. For meals, the two of us had just $100 for lunch and dinner. The local people are still very simple. We didn't ask for tickets or parking fees when we went to the Luoxia Valley Scenic Spot today.
At 4:00 p.m., the sunshine was reflected on Dongchuan Red Land in Wumeng Mountains. We finally caught up with the best time to enjoy the scenery. The iron in the soil is gradually oxidized and deposited to form a distinctive red color. From a distance, farmland is like patches of colours painted by heaven. It is gorgeous and colorful. With blue sky and white clouds, it forms a spectacular landscape of red earth. Dongchuan Red Land is the palette God lost in Yunnan.
Dongchuan Red Land is out of the way. Six or seven hours'walking back and forth from Kunming, although the road is far away and the mountain road is not easy to walk, it is still worth coming. Every scenic spot coming by chartered car is far away, especially the Xiaxigou. In spring, the color may be better. Fortunately, I met the famous grandfather in the village for a group photo. It is a pity that I have no time to see the sunset. It's best to come in March and April, and then take pictures with my friends for lunch. The potatoes in the chicken are delicious, and the bacon (we call it bacon) in his family is delicious.
