The Yuanyang Rice Terraces, located on the southern slopes of Ailao Mountain in Yuanyang County, are about 300km south of Kunming, the provincial capital of Yunnan province. One thousand years ago, in their struggle against the difficult terrain, the Hani people's ancestors successfully crafted out terraces by their bare hands and grew rice in order to make a living. The landscape changes vividly through the year with the flooded paddies creating mirror like pools from December to April. In summer the paddies are luxuriantly green with growing rice stalks, and after the fall harvest they become naked bare earth.
