  • Among the most amazing sights I have ever seen. We spent a whole day walking around in the rice terraces trying to take in this incredible sight. These rice terraces beat all the other rice terraces I have seen, partly due to the scenery and partly due to them being constructed by the small rocks the locals used to build the walls of the terraces. Must visit.
  • Travelled here in October. Most of the terraces had been harvested but still plenty colourful and worth the 9-10 overnight bus ride.
  • So beautiful. Take your time and enjoy the ambiance
  • One of the most amazing places in the world!!
  • the most beautiful rice terraces in this area.
