The Chinese village of Ping’an is located 2 hours drive from Guilin. The history of Longji Rice Terraces dates back to Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and Ming Dynasties (1368-1644). The villagers continue to farm these terraces today.
The rice terraces are built up the mountain slopes and are said to resemble the scales of a dragon and the summits of the mountain range appears to be like the backbone of the dragon. In an early morning, the clouds flow through and over the rice terraces.
