This is a must visit venue for all photography enthusiasts. Every season offers different colours and scenic views. We were there in late November and even though some of the crops have been harvested, the landscape was still stunning.
We left immediately from the airport upon arrival on an evening flight. It took us more than 3 hours through dark winding roads before finally arriving at our guesthouse named Hong Tu Qing Yuan. We had a late but delicious dinner and hospitality here was super.
Sunrise viewing was at 6 am and we went to Damankan where a small crowd had already gathered. The sunrise did not disappoint as the red and orange hues lit up the hills in front of us. The freezing cold and crisp fresh air made this a memorable morning for us. On our way back for breakfast, we stopped at a couple of viewpoints like Luo Xia Guo, Qi Cai Po, Jinxiuyuan, Huashitou and Yueliangtian. At some spots, ice had already formed on the ground.
We left by noon and stopped on our way out for more photographs. This is definitely the place for clean fresh air, fabulous views and superb colour landscapes. It is still untouched, free entry and even though a distance to drive worth the journey. A place not to be missed. A true photographers haven.
