Breakfast

In the morning, you will be chauffeured to the Stone Forest, a must-see attraction of Kunming. After 1.5 hours' ride, you will reach the spot and a battery car will take you to admire the wonder land. Stone Forest is endowed with peculiar karst limestone formations that were formed about 270 million years ago. Sword-shaped stone peaks rise abruptly from the grounds, showcasing labyrinthine vistas and rugged charm of nature. You will discover the grotesque peaks in various shapes, such as pillars, mushrooms, pagodas and bamboo shoots. Stroll along the viewing decks to marvel at the natural stone masterpieces where you will always be able to shoot some amazing photos.

After that, you will be driven back to the Kunming downtown to visit the Green Lake Park, a popular urban park for relaxation. Stroll along the tree-lined causeways to inhale the fragrance of the flora, sit by the lakefront to feed the migrant black-headed gulls, or enjoy the lively scene of local life.

After that, return to your hotel for a nice rest.

It is an unparalleled natural landscape featuring its red land formed by the oxidization of the iron and aluminum in the soil in warm and humid climate. Reputed as the God's Palette, Dongchuan Red Land has been a hot photography destination for shutterbugs. 

With your insider guide, you would head for Luoxiagou, a superb spot to catch the bewitching sunset glow over the red land.

Close to Damakan, you could also move to Qicaipo, a seven-color slope. Standing by the viewing spot, you could seize the changing hues over the bright-colored field strips, with the azure sky as the backdrop. If weather permits, you would even be lucky to get bathed in a sea of cloud.

Afterwards, follow your guide to explore more photography spots of red land like Guoditang and Dalongshu to discover spectacular views. Finally, you would be escorted back to Kunming and check in a hotel for tonight's stay.
