“ripped off on the pony ride to the top”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

The terraces are a good 2.5 hour drive from Shangri la. The scenery is spectacular, but the road is winding and can give one motion sickness.
Our guide engaged the ponies for a 2 hour trip to the top of the terraces for 180 yuan, but after about 15 minutes they turfed us off the horses and disappeared. We had to walk the rest of the way ourselves. Our guide later found out and made them apologise, but no refund was offered!
The terraces are beautiful and worth seeing, but it is a long trip each way.
