Lexiaguo - An Amazingly Colorful Place in China

IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A place in south west of Kunming, Capital city of Yunnan Province. Kunming is called spring city of China, 2 and half hrs away from Kolkata, famous for its stone forest, locally called shilling.

Because of remoteness and lack of infra structure and lodging etc. This place is not listed in the tourist map of China.

The red land of the eastern river is a place one almost can not find it in China's tourist maps. Even if there is, it has only a few words to introduce it.

It is located 2600 ft. above sea level, a remote area. Because of its lack of infrastructure, transportation problem, inadequate lodging facilities. ordinary travel agency would not think of going or sending you there.

Even the people living there are not so aware or familiar with its existing beauty.

But for those who have seen the pictures of the Red land , no one can resist being attracted to its beautiful scenery! Just like a painting of a great magnificent landscape.

Because the soil contains such components as oxidized Iron, etc kind of metallic minerals. after a long period of oxidation , gradually added and mixed in the soil that produced this extra-ordinary reddish brown soil.

Here in this place, Mountains and hills , every inch of land are cultivated and planted to the maximum by the inhabitants, Consequently causing unwanted damage to the place... erosion.

Just like Taiwan, How long could this magnificent phenomenon exist? We do not know. That's why there is an advocacy of returning to forestry.

Dongchuan Red Land represents Yunnan mountain valley most attractive colors.

Bad temper donkey did not want to work with the bull , such uncoordinated working force., This is the first time I saw such kind of farming method and wondered why.

Lexiaguo, China

The poorer farmer used horse to take the place of donkey. later I knew that since different kinds of animals had different temperaments , they were used together to control each other. If one of them refused to move, the other one would force it.

That is to increase production . I think such ancient method could only be seen here only.
