Idyllic scenery of Dai village in southwest China

CGTN Nature journalists visited Pingzhai Village, Xinping County in Yuxi, Yunnan Province in southwest China. Surrounded by mountains and forests, the village has been home to the ethnic minority Dai people for a long time. Patches of emerald green rice fields and cyan blue skies form a serene, peaceful scenery.
