Yunnan Landscape & Cultural Photography Tour

Yunnan Landscape & Cultural Photography Tour

Yuanyang, the Yunnan province of China, the Hani people's ancestors came to this mountain area about 2,500 years ago. They grew rice to make a living and they turned this mountain area into the artistic wonder of rice terrace. The UNESCO's World Heritage Committee conferred China's cultural landscape of Honghe Hani Rice Terraces, mainly in the Yuanyang region, onto the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List in 2013.

Red Land located at a rural area in the northeast of Kunming, Yunnan, is believed that it has the world's most imposing red soil on earth. Because of the warm and humid climate in Yunnan, the iron oxide in the soil deposited slowly through years and gradually developed an extraordinary reddish brown soil. This land with picturesque scenery is paradise for photographers because it is decorated with multi-color crops!

Across these two weeks, join our award-winning, professional photography guides to explore the most beautiful places in China!
