Located in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Longji Terrace is also called Dragon’s Backbone Terrace in English. It got its name from local people who said the rice terraces resemble a dragon's scales, while the summit of the mountain range looks like the backbone of the dragon. /Chinanews.com Photo


Built in the early Qing dynasty, Longji Rice Terrance has a history of more than 650 years. It’s a great combination of both wisdom and labor of the Yao and Zhuang minorities who firstly moved to Longji Mountain and started their construction of the rice terraces. Therefore, Longji Rice Terrance is also an ideal place to experience China’s ethnic culture. /Chinanews.com Photo
