Longji Rice Terraces are reached from Guilin by mountain roads amid spectacular scenery. With a history of more than 700 years, the area is still being used for growing premium quality rice by Yao and Zhuang villagers. The rice terraces are built into the hillsides and look like great steps cut into the slopes as they wind around the mountainsides. This ingenious construction makes best use of the scarce arable land and water resources in the mountainous area.
Among the terraced fields there stands two villages – Ancient Zhuang Village and Ping’an Village. Hike among the terraced fields for about 3 hours. You will see the two most famous scenic spots- “Seven Stars around the Moon” and “Nine Dragons & Five Tigers”.

There are lots of rock stone carvings and Buddha statues since Tang Dynasty. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Guilin city if you climb to the summit. Then visit the Seven-star Park.
