Longji Mountain, Longsheng County

(4.8/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
View an awe-inspiring human achievement in engineering at Longji Mountain. From the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) through to the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), rice farmers utterly transformed the landscape here to meet their needs, digging contoured terraces all the way down the hillsides. Following the undulating topography, the terraced paddies create an outstanding overall visual effect. Hike around the mountain for panoramic views of the paddies, where the reflected sky gives them a bizarre mirrored aspect. Be prepared for many steps, and uneven ground across the trails.

  • The scenery and the rice terrace on Longji mountain is definitnely worth the bus ride out of Guilin. Once you get there you have to take another smaller bus to get up the mountain for a better view. 
  • The short hike through the rice terraces with great views and is worthwhile in any case. Worth seeing even in cloudy weather.

  • So I want it anyone on Devil come out ausreden...aber: we were carved during the bus ride from Longsheng to Dazhai over the ear (also, just because we are Europeans, I find quite outrageous 30 yuan per person instead of 9 like everyone else!) and hardly get off man, is surrounded and besieged by sales clerks and carriers, that sick. Very uncomfortable. We have carried our luggage himself because we would find anything funny (to get his luggage worn mainly by older, small ladies would feel very colonialist for me, but that's just our opinion, if you want this love to!) Generally, one has the feeling to be an ongoing Yuan ticket here unfortunately and sorry no Mensch...sehr. Soon that the Yao have noticed the women that we want to look at "only" the natural beauty, we were none look more gewürdigt...kulturelle understanding, things are different. Fortunately, this was the only time we have seen something like that in China. Be Dazhai recommend anybody and always advise against this. Yes, the rice terraces are beautiful, but if it is treated for this so funny... (once was that we are almost there, so natürlich...und prompt who stood "Lohai" with expensive food and water ready... obtained from mountain to mountain) Nature is beautiful for me, but who claims this is also a cultural experience, which not, also can mean what something like this and here is definitely not to find that... the dozens of construction sites is to see that this will become worse in the future. Now perhaps what for group tourists who drive up comfortably with the cable car, take a photo, and again driving, just in the litter raufftragen to their "travel" to continue or get make (what a sick thought is it really?) .... Backpacker interested for culture, wishing rather to an individual experience that is the wrong place!
