Longji Mountain, Longsheng County

Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
View an awe-inspiring human achievement in engineering at Longji Mountain. From the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) through to the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), rice farmers utterly transformed the landscape here to meet their needs, digging contoured terraces all the way down the hillsides. Following the undulating topography, the terraced paddies create an outstanding overall visual effect. Hike around the mountain for panoramic views of the paddies, where the reflected sky gives them a bizarre mirrored aspect. Be prepared for many steps, and uneven ground across the trails.

  • The highest peak in southern China, the original forest protection is very good, between 2000 and 2003 I have been to many times. There are many species of plants and organisms in this area.
