Dragon Backbone Rice Terraces

Dragon Backbone Rice Terraces (龙脊梯田) actually refers to several villages in Longsheng (龙胜) county. I stayed in Ping’an Village (平安庄) which had short walking access to Nine Dragons and Five Tigers (九龙五虎) and Moon Accompanied by Seven Stars (七星伴月). Both are famous scenic sites that had breathtaking panoramic views, especially during sunrise and sunset. I would recommend at least 2 days to fully experience this wonderful village. The scenes change as the rolling clouds blanket the slopes, or simply dissipate the next moment. I wasn’t fortunate enough to get a good shot of the Golden Hour, but the rolling clouds added a different feel of mystic to the landscape. I vow to return again in different season and maybe another village.
