Loping Rapeseed Flower Viewing Guide

Luoping's unique climate conditions make it the largest garden in the world. Every year from February to March, around 200,000 acres of golden rapeseed flowers bloom here, making the county in eastern Yunnan a must-visit destination for photography and hiking enthusiasts. The rapeseed flower season lasts for about two to three months. So, save this guide and go see the beautiful rapeseed flowers when the time comes.

Golden Rooster Peak Scenic Area

Here is the most beautiful place to see rapeseed flowers, northeast of the county town, along route 324 for 10 roads. Crossing Wangchengpo, a solitary peak suddenly rises on the flat ground, which is the Jinji Peak Cluster. This is the so-called Luoping Dam, relatively flat, and in the distance there is a solitary peak, which is the "business card" scenic spot of Luoping. The tourist attraction is located next to the highway, with a large parking lot, making it very convenient for self-driving tours.

Niu Street

In Luoping's Niujie, about 10 kilometers from the county town, this place is called Jiulong Town. The locals are used to calling it by the ancient name of Niujie. The rapeseed is planted in the terraces. From the top of the mountain, the terraces look like snails, so the terraces in this area are also called snail terraces. Jinji Peak and the rapeseed fields are two completely different styles. Jinji Peak gives a grand feeling, while here is delicate and exquisite. The best time is in the afternoon.

Shiwandashan Scenic Area

Near Luoping, the main venue of the rapeseed flower festival is close to the Ten Thousand Mountains. To the southeast of the county town, along the Dajing River to the Duoyi River. The rapeseed fields here are flat and wide, with a vast expanse of golden yellow flowers on all sides, which is very suitable for TV broadcasts. Whether it is a helicopter aerial view or a spotlight, it can create an unparalleled brilliant momentum. The rapeseed terraces between the mountains here are very majestic, and it's also good for taking sunrise photos. However, for the average photographer, the color of the flower sea here is pure, but the layers are too flat.
