Dongchuan red earth

This is a wonderful trip for nature photography lovers. The colours in this area are simply amazing. Dongchuan is known for its rich red-brown which comes from the soil’s deposits of iron and copper. The blossoming canola flowers add a bright yellow to the Luoping karst mountain landscape. The Puzhehei scenery is a reminder of the karstmountains in Yangshuo and Guilin but the rivers are wider and it’s more peaceful as it doesn’t see so many tourists.
