Drive about 1.5 hours to Dagon&Phoenix Rice Terrace in the afternoon.
The Rice Terraces in Dragon&Phoenix village show a picture of great momentum and imposing beauty, being reputed as having no match in the world. Dragon&Phoenix Terraces are reached from Zhangjiajie city by mountain roads amid spectacular scenery. With a history of more than 700 years, the area is still being used for growing premium quality rice by Tujia Minority villagers. The rice terraces are built into the hillsides and look like great steps cut into the slopes as they wind around the mountainsides. This ingenious construction makes best use of the scarce arable land and water resources in the mountainous area.
The Rice Terraces are much prettier after the rain, as the morning fog is clearing or while rice is being harvested. If you like to paint or photograph dramatic, beautiful landscapes, this would be a superb destination in which to practice your art; or come here anyway just to look, gaze in awe, and take it all in.
