The Yunhe Rice Terraces are recognized as the most beautiful rice terraces in China. The entire area of the Yunhe Terraces is 51 square kilometers (20 square miles), covering mountains, hills, and valleys.
"Yunhe"Literally meaning "peaceful clouds," Yunhe and its surrounding rice terraces have been home to farmers for at least 1,000 years.The Yunhe Rice Terraces are recognized as the most beautiful rice terraces in China. Located in Chongtou Town, Yunhe County, Zhejiang Province, Yunhe Rice Terrace filed was originally developed in early Tang Dynasty. Till now, it has about 1,000 years history. The altitude range of the terrace is from 200m to 1,400m, and the vertical height is around 1,200 meters. It spans over high mountain area, hilly area, and valley area, totally about 700 layers. The entire area of the Yunhe Terraces is 51 square kilometers (20 square miles).
Scenery: The altitude of the terraces ranges from 200 to 1,400 meters (650 to 4,600 feet), individual terraces can be constructed of as many as 700 layers,which gives Yunhe Rice Terraces amazing scenery.With seas of clouds in the early morning, especially during spring and summer. Rainy days are the best time to visit, when steam from evaporating river water floats through the terraces, creating a kind of agricultural dreams-cape.It's a good place for you to hike and experience minority culture(She ethnic group, a minority with a very small population in China).Being further north, you are more likely to see terrace scenery with snow or rime in the winter. In the Yunhe Rice Terraces, the best times for photography are early morning and at dusk.If you don't want to go southwest China. But the scenery is not as spectacular as Longji and Yuanyang terrace fields.
After lunch at a local farmer's house, visit the Kenggen Village - a comparative remote village from Yunhe. With an altitude about 1000m, there were 176 families dwelling here. Walked along the terraced filed road, we could pass the elaborate lounge bridge. After that, a archway came into our eyes. This was the gate of Kenggen Village. Kenggen Village had more than 800 year history.When walking on the stone road, I could see the historic memory from the gray walls, ancient cottages, stone covered route, and zig-zag lanes. The old houses in this village could be valuable relics nowadays.
