Ping'an Village, Longsheng County

(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Ping'an Village draws visitors to view the marvel of its rice terraces descending steeply from an altitude of 1,100 (3,600 ft) down to 300 m (984 ft). First cultivated between 1271 and 1368, during the Yuan Dynasty, the rice terraces today support around 50 families, comprising of mainly Zhuang people and some Yao people. As you wander through the alleyways, you will come across different viewing points offering impressive vistas of the terrace-lined valley spilling out below. Make sure you save time to sample some local delicacies during your visit, such as bamboo rice. The village remains inaccessible by car--it's roughly a 20-minute uphill walk from the main parking spot.

  • We spent a very good night and two gorgeous days in this region. While tourism is developing on a large scale but the landscapes are amazing. Especially tourists (mostly Chinese) do not necessarily like hiking so if, like us, you opt for the path of 4-5 h walk between Ping' year and Dazhai (use the "Maps.me" App) you will absolutely alone in the world in these wonders of rice! An unforgettable memory

  • This is the second time I've been to Ping'an village. The first time was in July and now again in April. Very scenic with lots of culture. We were very lucky to have had the terraces being filled with...  more »
  • The village is very old and wonderful. We walked among the houses to find the best views, but the best are from the stands. There are many hotels and restaurants with local specialties in the village.
