Huangling teams with DJI to open new drone base for aerial photography enthusiasts

Published: 10 October 2017

Huangling, the idyllic Chinese countryside destination in Wuyuan County, has joined hands with DJI, the world leader in unmanned aerial technology, to launch an aerial photography base in the village. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) enthusiasts will have full access to the airspace around the village to use their drones for video-taking and photography purposes.

The base comes at a golden time for UAV enthusiasts, as September to November are the best months to discover the village's unique view of shaiqiu, when bamboo baskets filled with colorful produce such as chili peppers and chrysanthemum flowers are sun-dried over roofs and in racks, creating a breathtaking layered vista of vibrant colors against Hui-style homes with their black roof tiles and white walls. This cultural tradition cannot be found elsewhere.

Huangling is perhaps most suited for this collaborative venture due to its vast terrain. Located in Wuyuan County, Jiangxi Province, China, Huangling attracts visitors from all over the world. The quaint and elegant village has preserved and maintained its ancient Hui-style architecture and offers an authentic Chinese countryside travel experience.

Praised as the most beautiful countryside in China, the unique view of shaiqiu can only be found in Huangling, where baskets of colorful harvest bask in the sunshine.

Huangling has been actively working to connect its cultural heritage and landscape with technological innovation. The village has also introduced virtual reality (VR) viewing of its springtime vistas, which gives visitors a 3D panoramic view of the sensational golden sea of rapeseed flower blossoms and historic houses via real-time drone feed.
