 Friendly Tips

1. The best time to set out for this Dongchuan Red Land Tour from Kunming is during September ~ December, when rapes, potatoes and buckwheat are being harvested and the winter wheat is sprouting. The land is rich in colors at that time. As well roadside aspen trees and lacquer trees turn bright yellow and red in the meantime, making colors there more abundant.

2. Visitors are also recommended to come in January or February, for some pieces of land are irrigated by water, looking like winding ribbons staggered on the hillside.

3. May and June is another good visiting time when yellow rape flowers bloom and golden wheat is ripe.
