Babao Scenic Spot is a basin located in Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture. Covering an area of 40 kilometer square meters, Babao is well-known for its peak clusters and waterfalls. Here in Mumei, an ancient Yi village, lives the Yi people who are good at singing and dancing.

Dating back to Ming Dynasty (A.D.1368~1912), the rice produced here was listed as “Gongmi” (imperial-cereals.). But it’s hard to buy the Baobao rice in the market now, because the rice fields were divided by Baobao River, and the rice can only be cultivated on one side of the river.

When the fall approaches, the fields are painted gold. With the blackish green peak clusters, one can experience a fantastic fairyland.
