Hiking the rice terraces
In the Longji Rice Terraces in Yunnan Province, China, people plant rice in thin, flooded strips that hug the hills as far as the eye can see. Water buffalo and farmers like this man traipse through the mud together to plow them, back and forth for days. We hiked past him through the fields from Tiantouzhai village to Ping’An on a warm and misty day in May, listening to the sounds of our footsteps echoing against the wet rocks.
