The Longji Terraces are located in Longsheng County about 2 hours from Guilin
. The rice terraces are built into the hillsides. The terraces look like great
chains or ribbons as they wind from the foot to the top of the hill. This
ingenious construction makes best use of the scare arable land and water
resources in the mountainous area. There are about 66 square kilometers terraced
fields in southeast of Longsheng,
The Terraces were first built in the Yuan dynasty and completed in the Qing
dynasty by the Zhuang people.
