Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces, Longsheng County

4.6
Climb hill slopes of terraced fields at Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces, where the glitter of the sun on countless rice paddies resembles the scales of a giant dragon. Following a 30-minute hike to the 2,886 m (880 ft) peak, you'll have panoramic views of a monumental agricultural engineering effort dating back to the Yuan dynasty. Often extending from the river at the foot of the hill to heights of 300-1,100 m (984-3,608 ft), this ingenious method of irrigation covers about 66 sq km (25.5 sq mi). A number of villages along the way offer modern service facilities, including family inns. Arrange to stay in one of these to immerse yourself in the Yao and Zhuang peoples' lifestyle.
