This is the Honghe (Red River) Autonomous Prefecture of Hani Yi Nationalities, much alike a piece of green precious stone inlaid at the southernmost end of China.


The Honghe River flows from the west to the east across the prefecture. Found in this area are dense tropical rain forests like many green peaks rising one higher than another, immense variety of karts landforms, many deep mirror-like plateau lakes, magnificent views of seas of clouds in the valleys and ravines, tiers upon tiers of terraced fields which reach to the sky, and rich rare-metal resources renown home and abroad.
