Hiking at Longji to see rice terraces and minority culture   

Hiking: Ping'an Village - Dazhai Village
Length: 18km
Time: 4-6 hours
Type: Moderate Hiking

Longji Rice Terraced fields is a group of large-scaled rice fields built into the hillside, which located around 2 hour's driving from Guilin city. Some of the terraces look like great chains, other look like ribbons as they extend from the foot to the top of the hills.


The popular hiking trail is from Ping'an village to Dazhai village; there is a flagstone path shared by local farmers and buffalo. The path will lead you through local Zhuang and Yao village, rice fields and other charming scenery. See the local villagers in minority clothes and accessory, taste local snacks and enjoy a overnight stay at the wooden house...


The best time see Longji is before July as there is water in the fields and you are rewarded with great photo opportunities with water reflection. However, autumn offers a different color of the striking rice terraces.
