Longji Rice Terrace Scenic Spot
552 Country Road
On Top of the WorldI caught this moment while traveling in the countryside of Guangxi, China, where there are spectacular terraced rice fields near Longsheng. The steepness of these hills does little to deter these farmers from cultivating them with rice, and I happened to see the scenery during harvest time. These two men sat atop a high hill, chatting while taking a break from the grueling work.
There are some lovely treks in the area that weave through small villages and lovely rural areas. I had the pleasure of eating a delicious lunch at the home of some villagers I met.
This area is approximately 100km North of Guilin, Guangxi province, and can be reached by bus. Speaking Chinese will aid you immensely when traveling in these areas, though tours are also available.
