Yuanyang Rice Terraces
Yuanyang Rice Terraces are about 320 kilometers from Kunming. Over the past 1300 years, the local Hani people had been continuously transforming and carving this hilly land by developing a complex system of water channels and barriers to bring and reserve water to their terraces. They are ingenious architects and making the terraces vast and esthetic. Yuanyang Rice Terraces become well-known not for too long and already attracted numerous travelers and photographers to come each year and have been added to the World Heritage List.
