Photographer's Note

Located in Longsheng County, the Longji Rice Terraces are about 100 km (2 hours drive) from Guilin. The most popular are Ping An Rice Terrace and Jinkeng Rice Terrace. History of Longji Rice Terrace can be dating back to Yuan Dynasty, but most of the Rice Terrace were built during the Ming Dynasty, about 500 years ago.

As the rice terraces resemble a dragon's scales, while the summit of the mountain range looks like the backbone of the dragon, so called Dragon-back Rice Terrace. You can see the dragon's backbone twisting off into the distance while standing on the top of the mountain . In an early morning, if the weather is fine, the sunrise on the summit of Longji Rice Terraces is magnificent.
