LONGJI RICE TERRACES
Longji Rice Terraces
They are more than 60 miles away from Guilin, but they present some of the most amazing landscapes in the entire province. The making of Longji Rice Terraces started more than six centuries ago. Tourists can witness the unique scenery of rice fields spread along the mountain slope. The height of the fields varies from 2,000 to 2,600 feet depending on your position. The form of the terraced fields reminds of a dragon’s backbone, which is how they got their name. Longji Rice Terraces have three entrances and each of them can be reached by bus from the city.
