Longji Rice Terraces

Longji Rice Terraces
Longji Rice Terraces  Fields

Longsheng is a county situated 108 km in the northeastern part of Guilin City. The natural beauty and the colorful cultures and customs of ethnic Zhuang and Yao minorities attract tourists year after year. After 2.5 hours' drive from Guilin on beautiful mountain road, visitors will get to the Longji area in Heping Township of Longsheng.

A vast region of terraced rice fields stretches from the base of Longji Mountain to its summit, spans an altitude between 300 meters and 1100 meters. This is the Longji (Dragon's Backbone) Rice Terraces. Construction of the terraced fields began in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), and completed until the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The terraced rice fields are the wisdom and hard labor of the ethnic Zhuang people.

In spring, the water is irrigated into the fields, glittering in the sun, shinning terraces like silver ribbons. And summer breezes ripple the surface of the paddies in great waves. In fall layers of yellow crops make golden pagodas, and in winter the whole mountain will be covered with white snow, just like white dragons lying on the mountains.

There are mainly 4 ethnic groups in Longsheng, including Zhuang, Yao, Miao and Dong. Each ethnic group in Longsheng have their own unique customs and festivals. Their clothing styles, architecture, food habits are different from each other too. Most of the residents living in Longji village are Zhuang and Yao ethnic group. Often travelers can see Yao people washing their long hair along the riverbanks.
