Qujing is situated in the east of Yunnan province. It has a varied landscape and diverse culture with a range of ethnic minorities including Yi, Zhuang, Miao and Yao. Qujing is also the birthplace of the ancient Cuan culture, named after the Cuan family that ruled the area for centuries. Major attractions include the source of the Pearl River, Cuan era artifacts, Qianfo Pagoda and the Jiulong Waterfalls.
The Jiulong Waterfalls are located to the northeast of Luoping in Yunnan Province. The waterfall system is over 4 km long and drops over 100 m. The waterfalls are situated in picturesque surroundings and can be heard from far away. Visitors are rewarded with spectacular views over the towering cascades.
Located in the southeastern part of the Dahai Township of Huize County, Dahai Grass Mountain is the main peak of Wumeng Mountains. The flat and vast Grass Mountain forms an alpine meadow. The mountain is known as the "New Zealand of Yunnan." In spring, the fragrant mountain flowers are in full bloom; in summer, the green grass flourishes and herds of cattle and sheep wander the grassland; in autumn, blossoming white clouds float in the blue sky; and in winter, the earth is clad with thick white snow.
The Luoping Canola Flower Ocean attracts many travel and photography enthusiasts from China and abroad. Sites recommended for viewing and photographing the canola flowers include the Jinji (“golden rooster”) Peaks, Niujie Township, Wanzi Lake Reservoir, and Shiwanda Mountain. Every year during the flower season, Luoping County is submerged under a sea of canola flowers in riotous bloom. The Luoping Canola Flower Ocean is concentrated around the vicinity of Luoxiong Town, and is most conveniently reached by contract car.
Located in the southeast of Luliang County, the Luliang Colored Sand Forest is a scenic spot with natural sand columns and sand peaks as the main point of interest. Part of the "Three Forests in Yunnan" together with the Lunan Stone Forest and the Yuanmou Soil Forest, the Luliang Colored Sand Forest is not as famous as the Lunan Stone Forest, and does not attract as many tourists, so it's a place where you can really enjoy the scenery. The sand forest was weathered from mineral-bearing sandstone. Through careful observation, visitors will find that in the changing sunlight, the sand forest is composed of many different colors, such as red, white, yellow, gray, and black, which produces an excellent effect in photos. The layering of the sand forest is especially obvious in the evening sunset.
