Irrigated Rice Terraces
The Longji Rice Terraces (Longsheng Rice Terraces) filled with luscious rice crops can be seen from September through October. After that, crops are harvested and the terraces are transformed into a photogenic mirror-like landscape when farmers irrigate the land.
Flooding the land and retaining the water by building risers protected by fodder grasses allows the soil to soften in preparation for the next planting season.
