Red soils developed under high temperature and rainy conditions in Dongchuan, Yunnan Province, contain more iron and aluminum, less organic matter, strong acidity and heavy clay. Nearly a hundred miles around here is the most concentrated, typical and distinctive red earth on the Yunnan laterite plateau. Lined with blue sky, white clouds and unpredictable light, red earth is a magnificent sight. In the scenic spot grows a sand pine, pine fir, said to have more than 1000 years old, withered for three years and spit out new buds, the local villagers called it "old dragon tree," bless the villagers.

Dongchuan red earth refers to the red earth town located more than 40 kilometers southwest of Dongchuan District of Kunming City. There is a place called "Huashi" (at 109 kilometers of milestones). The area around 100 miles here is the most concentrated, typical and characteristic red earth on the Yunnan red earth plateau. From September to December of each year, some of the red earth is turned over for planting, and some of it has been planted with green barley or wheat and other crops. From afar, it looks like a patch of sky-painted color, colorful, with blue sky, white clouds and unpredictable beams of light, forming a spectacular landscape of the red earth.
Red soil is a kind of low-yielding and barren soil, mainly because of the acceleration of "red soil desertification" by man-made and natural weather factors. Because of the large population, less land, over-exploitation, deforestation, and the characteristics of the soil itself, the soil productivity in red soil area is low, soil erosion is serious, and in many areas serious degradation, the formation of "red desertification". Slope reclamation or excessive reclamation, or deforestation and reclamation, deforestation and pay damage to surface vegetation resulting in soil erosion, land degradation. In addition, the soil erosion in the hilly area of the south is serious, and the harm is greater than that of the Loess Plateau. It causes the stone to be exposed and cannot be restored to form "red desert".
Red desertification: southern hilly area, soil erosion, land degradation, red soil exposure
Rocky desertification: further erosion of rocky bareness in degraded red soil
Yellow desert: Desert in Northwest China
White desert: snow cover on Antarctica
Land desertification: land desertification, land salinization, red desertification and rocky desertification.
Located more than 40 kilometers southwest of Dongchuan District of Kunming City, Dongchuan Red Earth, a place called "Flower Stone" (at 109 kilometers of milestones), is considered by experts to be the most powerful red earth in the world except Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and its scenery is even more magnificent than Brazilian red earth.

Dongchuan red earth is located in the Wumeng Mountains. It belongs to the plateau mountainous terrain. The mountains are crisscrossed, the hills are uneven, the red earth hills are endless, and the influence of monsoon forms a mild, dry and wet plateau monsoon climate. The best season for red earth photography is from September to December, when rape, potatoes and buckwheat are harvested, winter wheat is sprouting and jointing, and the poplar trees are yellow and lacquer trees are red in the roadside, village and woods, followed by January and February, when wheat is growing vigorously and the moon fields are full of water; and May and June, when winter wheat is sprouting and jointing. The rape is blooming and the wheat is ripe. These seasons are colorful seasons.
The most beautiful color, the most honest smile.
The best season for red soil photography is May-June and September-December, different seasons can see different scenery, summer potatoes blossom, wheat maturity, autumn part of the red soil ploughing, the other part of the red soil has been planted with green barley or wheat, Yunnan's unique white rape has blossomed, color is rich. According to the locals, the third day after the rain is the most beautiful time for the red earth, and the rain-drenched land is richer in color in the sun. After the heavy rain, the clouds dispersed, the sun shone high, the sky became more and more blue and moving, the clouds changed their postures, the light and shadows cast in the fields changed from time to time, each second was a new picture. When you are lucky, you can see the rainbow and the red earth.
Walking on the soft and wet red earth, overlooking the land in the rain moistened by oil-like color, bright and bright. The red is more intense, the green is more gorgeous, the yellow is particularly dazzling, the white is pure. The work of farm workers in the field is like art. No, it is creating art. The colorful patches gradually formed and slowly changed in their hands. How amazing! The only thing to do at this time is to quickly raise the camera in hand.
If you want to feel the most real red soil, you must track down the farmers' footprints. They are the creators of the red earth, the real masters of the land, and the most vivid natural scenery in the world. Under the blue sky, on the red earth, they worked as a family, herded cattle and ploughed, leaving behind a string of loosened soil. The children are in the field, doing something with their adults. Every simple face, every curious look, every simple smile, is the most killing film. But before you press the shutter, you'd better ask for their permission, and after that, you'd better prepare some small change. Since you've asked for something from someone else, you should give something back.
The people of Dongchuan are simple, and these kind-hearted people will often lend a helping hand when you need it most. Relatively scattered among the various scenic spots in the laterite, the distance between them is also relatively far, in general, need to charter a car to go, the cost of a day in 150-200 yuan. If you don't charter a car, you can only walk. It's impossible to finish all the attractions in one day. Walking tired, if you encounter a passing motorcycle on the road, as long as you wave, someone will stop to help you go where you want to go, and will never charge any material return, people are grateful. In the evening, on the side of the road, occasionally there will be people driving carriages, sheep evening, laughing and shouting: take a good picture, on TV!
