Its ecological environment was very fragile, with drought, bare mountains and no crops growing on the ground.

But now it is regarded as "China's most beautiful dry land terraced fields".

Guyuan city has gradually improved its environmental quality by vigorously implementing ecological measures, such as returning farmland to forestry and grasslands, afforestation, ecological migration and pollution reduction. Many birds and animals that had not been seen for many years have returned.
