Seen here are the stunning Longsheng Rice Terraces located in Guanxi, China after a fresh watering. According to english.news.cn the terraced rice fields were created over 650 years ago and they range from 600 to 1200 meters above sea level.

The terraced rice fields wind all the way up from the river to the mountain top, dividing the mountain into layers of water in spring, layers of green rice shoots in summer, layers of rice in fall and layers of frost in winter.
