The terraced rice fields make Longji a paradise for photographers and people interested in China's minority cultures.

During the day time, it is wonderful to see minority women who live in the Huangluo Yao Village working in the fields in colorful costumes.
Longji (Dragon's Backbone) Terraced Rice Fields received their name because the rice terraces resemble a dragon's scales, while the summit of the mountain range looks like the backbone of the dragon. Visitors standing on the top of the mountain can see the dragon's backbone twisting off into the distance.
