Known also as the Dragon's Backbone Terraces, the enchanting countryside around Longsheng is some of the most photogenic in China. Layers of spectacular rice terraces curve gracefully around the steep verdant hills of the region like ribbons, creating a scene that is profoundly beautiful. Tiny remote minority villages dot the landscape and can be explored during your visit to learn about the history and culture of the area. The terraces represent an extraordinary feat of engineering and are a shining example of Chinese vision and ingenuity.

The terraces change dramatically throughout the year here. In spring they are filled with water to irrigate the fields, turning green with the arrival of summer. They take on a golden palette of beautiful autumnal colours at harvest time, before winter brings snow to the mountainous region.

The rice terraces are located just two hours north of the Guilin and its magnificent karst landscapes. They can be visited on a day trip, though you may prefer to stay in Ping'an village overnight for a fuller experience.
