E47***38It was absolutely beautiful! My friends and I went in December, so it wasn't as beautiful as it could have been, but it still was! definitely need to go back when it's green and filled with rice!
139***13Longji Jinkeng Terraces. From the Pingan Zhuangzhai Scenic Area, drive along the rugged mountain road for about 30 minutes to reach the Dazhai Jinkeng Parking Lot. Jinkeng Dazhai terraces belong to the Yao ethnic group. The Longji Jinkeng Viewpoint is the only one with a cable car in the Longji Terraces. An inn was booked in the parking lot. This inn is located between the Longji Jinkeng and the Longji Cableway. There is a parking lot under the slope of the inn. Arriving at the inn, the proprietress helped put the luggage in the inn. It was almost 6 o'clock at this time. She showed the way to climb the mountain from the inn to the Golden Buddha Peak in 30 minutes, and she could see the sunset. We traveled lightly along the mountain path towards the Golden Buddha Peak. The road is very narrow, and in some places, you walk on the ridges of terraced fields. When you reach the top of the mountain, you will suddenly see your eyes. The terraces are layered, and the smooth lines are like dancing ribbons, like a movement, which is really beautiful. Golden Buddha Peak, Fenghuanghuitou, Jinkeng Cableway Station, and Golden Phoenix Spreading Wings Viewpoints are all on the top of a mountain, connected by a plank road. When we arrived at the Golden Buddha Peak, the ropeway had been closed from get off work. There were only a few people waiting to take pictures of the Dragon's Back at dusk and sunset, and the sellers were also closed. At this time, a dark cloud floated over and a light rain began. On the way down the mountain, the rain is getting heavier and heavier. Walking on the muddy path back to the inn has been soaked, but still very happy.
139***13Huangluo Yaozhai Pass Huangluo Yaozhai on the way back to the gate of the scenic spot from the thousand-story ladder view point. The owner of the inn said that this is a traditional village of the Yao people. It is worth seeing the traditional performances of the Yao people every day. Huangluo Yaozhai is the only Yao village among the 13 Longji villages, and it is inhabited by the Hong Yao nationality. Since ancient times, Hongyao women have the traditional habit of storing long hair. Among the 60 households in the village, 60 have hair longer than one meter, and the longest one is 1.7 meters. It is known as the world's number one Changfa Village. The unmarried woman’s hair is wrapped around her head and wrapped in black cloth. Only her family can see her long hair. If outsiders want to see their hair, they must marry her home. Every villager here can sing, dance, and be hospitable. It is said that when tourists came to Huangluo Yao Village, Yao girls dressed in strong national costumes sang sweet folk songs to welcome them and presented their unique dances and traditional sports competitions. There are also the fragrant scented tea oil and the long black hair of Yao women, which amazes tourists even more. Due to the epidemic, when we came to Huangluo Yaozhai, we were deserted and there were few visitors. The performance hall was empty, but this allowed us to better appreciate the original Yaozhai. Huangluo Hongyao Village is backed by Longji Mountain and faces Jinjiang River. It is at the place where the Longji terraces begin to spiral upward. Hongyao women’s costumes are beautiful and exquisite. It takes three years for a set of clothes to be embroidered by hand. The clothes are embroidered with various patterns and patterns, colorful flowers and trees, and lifelike birds and animals. The most special There is a pair of bright red tiger paw prints on the waist. Speaking of this tiger paw print, there is an unusual story. Legend has it that one day the emperor went up the mountain to hunt and was in danger, and was almost eaten by a tiger. It was a Hongyao girl who saved him. To thank her for saving his life, the emperor cut off the tiger's claws and dipped the tiger blood on the back of the Yao girl's clothes like a seal. , Chuanzhi said that you don’t need to kneel down. When officials at all levels meet her, those who sit on the sedan chair will get off the sedan chair, and those who ride a horse will get off the horse. After returning home, this Yao girl embroidered tiger paw prints on all her clothes with silk thread. It was passed down from generation to generation, and you can still see the tiger paw prints. You only need to observe carefully that the Yao women wear silver jewelry on their ears and hands. The most conspicuous ones are the two- or three-fold earrings, and the bracelets on the hands are all folk silversmiths. Finely carved. In an open house on the side of the road, there are several old mothers embroidering. Their dresses are very ethnic, as if they were a harmonious and beautiful picture. On the road in the stockade, an old hen was playing with her children, looking so warm and peaceful. Huangluo Yaozhai is worth stopping to watch her traditions and appreciate her natural beauty.
kidaimamaIn the past New Year's day, the parking space was more tense, but it was also humane, allowing you to drive up and put your luggage before opening. The hardware is really old, and the heating in the changing room is not available. It is cold and hard to get. Tickets for 100 people, and buy one price at the site.
The longji rice terraces are beautiful even with the rain and fog. since COVID hit the villages are struggling because of the lack of tourists. go visit now when the crowds are gone and support the local economy while you are at it.
Longji Rice Terraces - beautiful day out tasting tea 🌾 #longjingtea #longji #travelchina
My friends and I went to Longji Rice Terrace in December, and though it was off-season, it was so beautiful. Definitely will go back when it's green and filled with rice!
Longji Rice Terraces in Guilin were beyond beautiful. I’d never seen rice terraces before so I was grateful when our hotel hooked us up with a great deal. We were travelling from Yangshuo so the ride was about 3 hours one way and 3 hours back....yikes. But I definitely think it was worth it! absolutely stunning!
#somewhereinguilin #longjiterrace. Take a walk along the terrace and experience the minority culture displays. Enjoy delicious foods at the local restaurants. Wake up and see the sunrise and walk in the fields at dusk an experience one will not quickly forget
Spend a night away from the incessant beeping of cities and towns, in a hidden village steeped in stunning surroundings, tradition and culture. The Longji Rice Terrace experience will be memorable!
One of the most incredible views I got to see through my trip in China! The Longji rice terraces are a must see. Tip: add Yangshuo, which is fairly close, to your itinerary.

How to play the first spectacle in Guangxi - Longji terraces? Please accept this travel guide
TIPS (I remember the bad weather forecast before travel)
weather forecast must check, because this time I started because of the weather, did not take a spectacular terraced landscape, The fog is very big, the whole atmosphere is dim and dark, and you must pay attention to the weather before you leave.
Because of the unfamiliarity of life, when I went, I booked a bus from a travel agency, about 40 yuan, about 80 from the urban area to the scenic spot. Kilometers, the car is about an hour or so.
Per capita cost TIPS
accommodation can live in the urban youth travel, the cost is a lot of 100 or less, and very distinctive, because Guilin is a tourist city, as opposed to Accommodation resources are relatively rich, and it is not expensive to eat. There are many food stalls and specialty shops that are suitable for eating. The cost of eating is about 30 to 50 yuan. In general, the cost is not very expensive.
Tour equipment TIPS
Since the Longji terraces are all mountains, it is recommended that you prepare hiking shoes, hiking sticks, and sun protection coats when you go. Rain mulberry is also a must. Other equipment can be the same as the general travel equipment.
Note: Due to the weather, this time there was no spectacular terraced view, so I would like to share with you the simple travels of the houses standing on the Longji terraces.
1, hiking in the Longji terraced tourist area, is very popular among tourists. When you choose to hike in the village to find the sights
waiting, the road must be remembered to walk along the stone road, I really do not know the farmers who work on the roadside, they will be very enthusiastic to guide the way. If you feel tired on foot, you can choose. When you first enter the door, rent a sedan chair at the door, let the locals carry you up, and the speed is faster than walking. All the way up
people will give way to the sedan chair. Don't worry if you can't find a place or go the wrong way.
2. Watching the performances in the stockade must ask if you want to charge.
3. Locals have the habit of leading the way for tourists and backpacks, acceptable, but pay a good price. Generally 2 hours to 10 yuan or 20 yuan.
