Lexiaguo, China

Lexiaguo China 561
A place so secret, few tourists know of its existence
A place in south west of Kunming, Capital city of Yunnan Province. 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 where one almost can not find it in China’s tourist maps. Even if  there is, it has only a few words to introduce it.

Dongchuan Red Land represents Yunnan mountain valley  most attractive colors.
It is located in the southwestern part of KUNMING, 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 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.

Crops on the Red Land such as ; potatoes, oats, corn, oil flower vegetables, Different color crops so arranged ,when looking from afar it seems like God painted them on a cloth so full of gorgeous color.
Each family was distributed with different size and shape of land, Each has its own preference kinds of crops. That caused and produced this beautiful pieces of colors. During harvest time, the soil is shoveled up and makes this unusually red color.

In September , white color oil flowers are in bloom on the whole mountain, It is a pity they covered up the beautiful red color. The best time for sightseeing tour is middle of  November .

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 577
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.
