A misty cold winter December morning. A stunning view of rice terrace. A mini bus takes you up (from base) for a small fee (50 yuan per person). We proceeded on to the Zhuang village not far for a delicious lunch (chicken cooked in bamboo, glutinous rice cooked in bamboo). Local made trinkets (definitely not 925 silver as claimed) bought from the local entrepreneurial transversing grandmamas are relatively much cheaper as compared to those sold elsewhere (in shops).

We took a small group tour there on a misty day so you couldn't see very far but it was still an impressive thing! The tour talked us into visiting the village nearby for the "long hair show" which wasn't much to see and which I'd recommend skipping.

Beautiful place. A must go when in Guilin, worth the 3 hr drive. But better still, stay here at one of the lodges overnight to capture the sunrise and sunset pics of the rice terraces.

We weren't there at the best time of the year to view the terrace fields but the long journey from Guilin city and the climb up was definitely worth it. The walk itself was quite nice and as you go higher and higher the view becomes better. Worth a visit.

One of the most beautiful places on Earth. It's also a testament to human ingenuity that we figured out how to make the land produce for us in such a relatively harmonious way. If you plan on visiting Guilin it would be a shame if you were unable to see this magical place and the traditional way of life that still exists here. All is not rosy in the garden, however. I was a little concerned to see an inordinate number of hotels, hostels and guest houses under construction in the nearby town. Clearly the town is expecting a massive influx of tourists in the near future. The danger with this is that the landscape gets trashed the more visitors the area gets. I can only hope that I'm mistaken in this but it's perhaps it would be wise to see the rice terraces sooner rather than later.
