Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces
Your first stop is the 'Long Hair Village', Huangluo, where the Yao women grow their hair to spectacular lengths – some as long as 6.6 feet (2 meters)! Learn about Yao lifestyles here, before you journey up to Ping'an Village, set among the dazzling rice terraces of Longji, and still home to traditional wooden houses, where Zhuang and Yao minorities tend their fields as they have for centuries. (Entrance fees, which are around 100 RMB, are at your own expense.)

Enjoy a traditional lunch in Ping'an (own expense) before your guide leads you through the rice terraces, telling the story of how these stunning landscapes were created over many centuries as the locals carved fields out of the vertiginous slopes of Longji. Soak up the lush scenery and relaxing atmosphere as you capture timeless shots.

Two unforgettable days in Longji

We had two unforgettable days with our guide Andy in the rice terraces. Highlights were the hike between two ancient villages through the greenest and lushest rice terraces and the cable car ride in the third village.

This was simply wonderful can not recommend enough. Whether heavy rain or sunshine it’s still a beautiful place to visit. The guide, Andy was very knowledgeable about the area and gave an excellent suggestion for lunch trying the local bamboo chicken and sticky rice.
Wonderful Experience on the Terraces

We had a great day with Andy! He’s very knowledgable, funny, and easy going. And his English is excellent. The terraces were beautiful — well worth the long trip. Afterwards, Andy offered to take us to Yangshuo to see West Street and the river show, which we’d wanted to do but weren’t sure we’d have time. The additional trip to Yangshuo (including the tickets) was very affordable, and Andy was very accommodating, driving us back to our hotel in Xingping afterwards. All in all, it was a great experience. If we were staying in the area longer we’d hire Andy again.
Brilliant! Andy’s instantly likeable and a great knowledgeable tour guide

Andy picked us up from our Yangshuo hotel. He was very good at communicating with us prior to the tour day and picked us up right on time. He speaks very good English and answered any of our questions. We really enjoyed our day of walking through the rice terraces and the long-haired women’s show. We would highly recommend this tour!!
