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.

    If during your trip stop in Guilin be sure to provide an extra day for this hike. Do you need first a couple of hours to reach the village at the foot of the mountains where you can catch buses that, clambering for a narrow and winding road leading to this place almost cut off from the rest of the world. Just arrived you will have the opportunity to purchase a typical straw hat, but beware that it will not be easy to make it fit in your luggage. Then immediately have access to a viewing point and you will see the show beyond description of the hills covered by terraced rice fields, interrupted only by a few houses here and there and from a village which can be reached with a short walk. Wandering through the maze of little streets you will feel immersed in an ancient time, between wooden houses, narrow passages, chilies and corn on the cob made dry in the Sun and in dressed in traditional costumes. There is also the possibility to visit a House (really very interesting!), a small museum and have lunch with simple but very tasty and characteristic: among others rice cooked in bamboo. An experience not to be missed and that justifies the not really short shift necessary to get there.

    Beautiful views over the rice terrraces and the village, misty and mystorious. Real old world feeling of the Chinese cultural.  more »

    We have visited the rice terraces with an overnight stay. You can buy tickets for the rice terraces at the entrance. It has taken over our guide for us. So I can't say how much it cost. Then we went to village to ping. At the village car park you must pay admission for the village once again. Our hotel was located in the village. The entry was not included in the accommodation cost. We brought our luggage at the hotel, which is located near the parking lot. If the above located in the village, it offers to use Lightweight suitcases or backpacks. The village is really nice. You can get a very good impression of the life. The views are gorgeous. We got up in the morning against 04:45 and looked at from the point of view of "7Stars with the moon" the Sunrise (like some others).
