Dongchuan Red Land
Dongchuan Red Land is located in the town
of Xintian, 40km southwest of Kunming City, near the milepost
named "Flower Stone". The area covering
over hundreds of square meters is the most concentrated, typical
and unique red land on the Yunnan red land tableland. Besides
the red land in Rio de Janeiro, the spectacular red land of
Dongchuan is healed the most magnificent red land in the world.
Comparing to red land in Brazil, the scenery here is even
Heading to the north from Kunming, you'll
be always on rugged winding roads. Overlooked from mountains,
white plain formed by debris flows will be in your visual
field. Dongchuan has been healed "the museum of
debris flows". You can never imagine such amazing
scenery without having been to Dongchuan.
Because of the humid and worm climate, the
iron elements in the soil have been depositing year by year
after oxidation, and then the glaring color is formed after
centuries. Dongchuan has also been called "natural
copper capital" since the ancient time. Glaring
red land, green vegetable plot, unique shape and beautiful
figure are set off by the blue sky, white cloud and capricious
ligh, which is the whole dream-like picture is just like the
colorful paintings, making you feel dizzy.
Reputedly, the discovery of Dongchuan Red
Land should be owed to a photographer. He saw the spectacular
gorgeous red land when he was passing by plane. Then he went
to Dongchuan lots of times to search the red land area. Finally,
the amazing land was found by him. As soon as his photos were
seen by people, countless tourists went there and worked up
much enthusiasm and passion of the land.
Every attraction here has its own specialty
in different seasons and time. You could choose the place
and time according to your own fancy. You could get good photos
at every scenic here. Besides, according to the
natives, the red land looks bright-colored and gorgeous after
rain. I also found it is a little dim and dull in the morning
and much better in the evening. In a word, the beautiful scenery
is far beyond description of words. Dongchuan Red Land was
selected as the "Top Undiscovered China Attractions".
