    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces, 80 kilometers from Guilin, Longsheng County 541701 China

    Next you will head to the Longji rice terrace fields, where you will climb up to the summit, at an elevation of 2,886 feet ( 880 meters). A half-hour hike up offers an amazing panoramic vista of this incredible feat of farm engineering. The coordinator will show you how to climb and he will stay down the hill. The ethnic minorities fled to these mountains during the Yuan dynasty, when they were hunted by the government at the time. They were mainly an agricultural society, and so created the rice terraces so they could continue farming on the side of the mountains.

    From the peak, the terraced rice fields resemble the backbone of a dragon twisting and turning into the distance. The terraces divide the mountain into multiple layers. Tiers of water glisten in the sun during the spring, lush green rice shoots appear in the summer, layers of golden rice flourish in the fall, and layers of snow cover the terraces in the winter.

    When the tour finishes, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Guilin city centre.
