Absolutely must see. Spectacular! Long climb but really worth investing. Weather does not matter as long as there is no fog.

“Autumn Colors in Longji Rice Terraces”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

We booked a tour from GreatWallDiscovery for hiking in Longji. It was autumn when we visited it. The autumn scenery there is so gorgeous, beyond my imagination. When a vast expanse of golden view jumped into my view, the only thing I can do was to press the shutter enthusiastically. Although it drizzled in the morning, it did not affect our high spirit. And our guide, Richard Li, also reminded us of slippery road. He was so nice and considerate. We were very happy during the whole trip.

“spectacular Longji rice paddy terraces hike to the minority Ping'an village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Part of our tour was hiking to and staying overnight in an authentic wooden guesthouse of Ping'an where we enjoyed amazing views over thousands of Longji terraces This 2 day hike was part of our 8 days tour in the Guangzi Province . We also visited the ancient village of Xingping and rafted on the peaceful Li River. This adventure was part of our 8 day private tour of the Guangzi Province which started in Guilin where we picked up our brand new Giant mountain bikes with helmets. We hiked and cycled through the karst mountain ranges and many small picturesque villages to Yangshuo. Thanks to Easy Tour China we booked our' bike hike' adventure with ease and the cost too was easy on the pocket!

“Incredible sight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

Visited the Dragon's Backbone. Wowed by the splendour and majesty. Apparently best time to visit is in the autumn but it was pretty impressive in May. Didn't have a great deal of time so weren't able to do the hike other reviewers mentioned but it's still a great experience!
