China – Longji Terraced Fields

with No Comments

The terrace fields called Longsheng Rice Terraces are at a two-hour picturesque drive through the mountains from Guilin. They cover an area of about 66 square kilometers, so unfortunately we cannot really say which terraces we visited. Still, despite the disagreeable weather – perhaps the prayers of the long-haired women in some special village were heard and rain fell to water the crops – the place was incredible.

The terraces switch colors with the seasons. Regardless of the time, however, we strongly recommend you visit them. They are one of the few successful collaborations by both nature and man.
