Longsheng - Ping'An - Dragon Backbone's Rice Terraces

Longsheng is situated about 200 km northwest of Yangshuo Village Inn. Longsheng itself is not a particularly interesting town but the area that surrounds it has some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in Guangxi Province. About 25 km from Longsheng, in the lower slopes of the mountains, you can find minority cultures living in villages nestled in between the ancient rice terraces. The major minority groups here are the Miao and the Dong. Once you are in the national park (50 RMB entry/person at time of writing) it is a 5km steep climb by bus from the riverside to the main village called Ping'An. This minority village is over 300 years old and in the wooden lodges 200 families are still living in harmony with nature.

The bus drops you off slightly below the village so you will have to walk about 15-20 min to reach Ping'An and another hour to get to the first of many view points from which you can see the breathtaking Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces. The scenery of large wooden lodges on stilts, cascading rice terraces that disappear into the valley below and the magnificent backdrop of 2000 meter mountains is always an unforgettable holiday experience.

The Dragon back rice terraces are beautiful in every season. In summer the paddies are a lush green and the rice sways in the gentle breeze, in autumn they turn a golden yellow, in winter they are often blanketed in a light covering of snow and in spring the waterlogged rice fields sparkle in the sunlight.

Go and explore it in your own time with the Yangshuo Village Inn's individual day trip:
