LUOPING: COLE FLOWER DAY
Every spring, the various cone-shaped mountains are dotted in a boundless ocean of green and yellow, decorated with rape flowers all over.In the morning, we will go to on top of a peak cluster in Luoping and enjoy a panoramic view over the flower fields.
The next stop is the Jiulong waterfall, a nationally reknown scenic spot in China, owing its name to the river Jiulong. Due to its special geological structure and millennia of water-erosion, there are ten groups of waterfalls with different shapes and heights. The largest one is 112 meters wide and 56 meters high. Known as "the first waterfall in Jiulong", it is truly magnificent. Because of its numerous waterfalls and dense scenic spots, the group of waterfalls has its own unique ornamental characteristics and provides beautiful scenery all year round.
Later, we will go to a nearby village, the birthplace of Buyi people that inhabit the border region of Guizhou and Yunnan. There are nearly 40 waterfalls on the river bed with a total length of 12 kilometers.The Buyi people's customs in the are intense and fascinating; particularly on the third day of the third lunar month, when young Buyi men and women gather by the river in costumes to race bamboo rafts, deliver egg bags and splash water. After lunch in the local restaurant, follow a farmer to learn how to make 5-colored rice by yourself. The 5-colored rice is a speciality from the region, where farmers dye the rice with natural flowers or floral essence.
Afterwards, go to a famous flower terraces, another great spot to shoot rape flower, the terraces here are circle shaped, which looks like the spiral pattern on the screw from a distance, hence their nickname as “screw fields”. Geologically it is a unique natural landscape composed of bead-like karst funnels. Overlooking the screw shaped flower sea landscape and the odd-shaped rape terraces, we can see establish that the rape flower fields here are completely different from overlooking the fields, whereas here you can find small and exquisite terraces, surrounding mountains like screws. At sunset, this simply makes for a marvelous treat. For dinner you will be treated a special Duoyi meal!
