Before 5.30 am, when the sun is still so lazy to rises up, pink grassland put on its innocent white as snow. When the light goes through, every dew, stagnating on the grass, starts glittering. The brighter the sun shines, the more glorious the pink color will be. Unfortunately, after 8 am, the color will not remain like before and become less attractive than what you saw by the dawn. What is more wonderful than waking up early in the morning, walking around the peaceful and romantic pink grassland, blending your soul in the surrounding and admiring the pristine beauty of the area?

If you do not want to travel too far, joining your friends for an overnight camping trip on the top of the pine's hill is not a bad idea. Up this high, you can observe the entire land changing its color in the early morning. One thing to remember is that you cannot camp right on the pink grassland because it will ruin the blade of grass.

Nothing is more perfect than camping and sipping a cup warm tea, talking with friends in this large open air.
