Below is the information forwarded to me recently. It’s about a very beautiful place in China. It’s called Lexiaguo. Does Lexiaguo exist? The pictures look stunning. Since I used to travel to China a lot and have never heard of this place, I did some research myself. Original text from the forwarded email:
Lexiaguo – southwest of Kunming in Yunnan, China
I later found out that the wider known name of this place is called Dongchuan Red Land (东川红土地) in Kunming, Yunnan. Lexiaguo mentioned in the forwarded email is a small village in the Dongchuan Red Land and the correct pinyin spelling should be Luo Xia Gou or La Xia Gou (落霞沟), literally means a ditch of fallen red colours since it’s situated between two mountains on both sides. Luoxiagou is more widely used. If you type La or Luo on the keyboard with Chinese language setting, you get the option of the same Chinese character. Try typing in Dongchuan Red Land in Google images, you will see many more breath-taking photos. I also found a map with the name of the small villages around that area. I have tried to collage different maps from Google to give everyone an idea of Kunming of Yunnan in relation to Dongchuan and Xintianxiang, where the Dongchuan Red Land fields are located. The map on the left shows location of different villages. You can click to enlarge.
