Longji Rice Terraces


Locals harvesting along the rice terraces

About 600 years ago, throughout most of the Ming Dynasty, the Longji Rice Terraces were created out of the shear need to survive. Given that only 25% of China can provide sustainable farming, many remote areas had to sought out ways to maximize there agricultural outputs with the means that they had. And for the aboriginals in Longsheng, a county in Guilin, it meant high hillsides across the vast land, which caused surface run-offs and land erosion proving itself to be too difficult to cultivate their main staple, rice.


By terracing the hills into flat paddies, they created a flooding reservoir to contain water for the rice to thrive. This system would run throughout the entire land, with each paddy supporting the other, landscaping itself into an agricultural masterpiece.

Anyone who visits the rice terraces will be mesmerized and awe inspired by its grandness and wonder. It’s a dynamic beauty that changes with the seasons and one that has continued to gives nourishing love to its people.
