Dongchuan is a rural place about 180 kilometers away to the north of Kunming, famed for the red soil scenery first discovered by Chinese photographers. Dongchuan is such a stunning masterpiece that combined red, green, white and yellow into a rolling rainbow stretching to the sky.

The place is seldom visited by general tourists for its remoteness and inadequate lodging facilities; however the land is the paradise for photographers with the picturesque scenery. There are some villages nearby the red land, which adds attractive views as well. The best visited time to this area is in May, September and November.
