Dongchuan Red-Soil Land (Lexiagou) is located 250 kilometers away in the northeast direction of Kunming. The altitude of main attractions there is between 1800 to 2600 meters. Because of the high temperature and strong rainfall in Dongchuan, the local soil develops into red easily. This kind of soil is rich in iron and aluminum but lack of organic matters; it is also acidic and sticky.

Because the soil contains such metallic components, after a long period of oxidation, gradually added and mixed in the soil that produced this extra-ordinary reddish brown soil. In this place, every inch on the hills and mountain are cultivated and planted to the maximum by the local famers, consequently causing unexpected damages to the environment, like erosion.

From each September to December, while part of the red land just been ploughed and looks refreshing red color while green crops on other parts of land are growing vigorously; seen from afar, it seems like God painted them on a cloth so full of gorgeous color. So the best time to visit Dongchuan Red-Soil Land (Lexiagou) is from September till December, and November is the best of all best time when farmers are busy with farming on red land.
