Youyu county in northwestern Shanxi province has become a prime choice for tourists to enjoy beautiful autumn landscapes.

Once plagued by drought, Youyu is now an eco-friendly county with forest coverage of more than 56 percent, thanks to greening efforts by generations of residents. Over the past 70 years, the county's forest coverage has increased from less than 0.3 percent to 56 percent.

During a visit in the county, tourists can appreciate ancient Great Wall sites, enjoy the fresh air of the forests and taste various local cuisine.
