Longji Rice Terraces' Most Beautiful Period Arrives
The irrigation of Longji Rice Terraces begins today, which means that Longji Rice Terraces comes into its most beautiful period: early summer, lasting from middle May to middle June. Check out the list of China's most beautiful rice terraces.
Early summer is the time for planting rice, so the entire Longji Rice Terraces are full irrigated with water, which makes terraces like mirrors when the sun is shining.
Photographers get up early in the morning and wait for the sunrise, so as to capture the image of the terraces reflecting the light and being shadowed by the mist.
Since the weather is great, being warm, but not at its hottest, hiking in the Longji Rice Terraces Scenic Area is highly recommended. Some China highlights’ staff members will go hiking in the terraces this weekend.
Touring to China in early summer, you can travel with the great weather (warm but not as its hottest), avoiding the peak season crowns, enjoying cost-efficient travel, and the best natural scenery of the year. Check out the list of China's best places to visit in early summer.
