Longji Mountain, Longsheng County

4.8
#3 of 8 in Things to do in Longsheng County
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.

  • Peasant China, authentic with pretty houses and people who work in the rice fields out of sight. Here, everything is beautiful and really authentic! We visited also reconstructed villages but here is not the case. Pollution does not exist as you go only on foot at the top of the mountain. The rise in Pingan isn't difficult so go ahead without problem.
