Jinkeng Rice Terrace
Besides of the famous known Pingan
village of Zhuang Minority Ethnic, there is another
unknown Jinkeng Rice Terrace, which is home to Yao minorities.
Jinkeng Rice Terraces are located around 25 miles (40
km) away from Longsheng, where you will be rewarded
feats of farm engineering going all the way up a string
of 2400 feet (800 m) mountains. The 66-square-km network
irrigation project was began by the ethnic Zhuang in
the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), and finished by the Qing
There are two villages here in Jinkeng. The first village
at the foot of the mountain is Dazai Village. Further
uphill Yao people two-story cabins are nestled against
the breathtaking man-made wonder. The layout of the
village mimics the terraces fields symmetry, giving
an appearance that the houses are stacked on top of
one another- an integrated part of the land.
Climbing up the hill for 60 minutes, you will arrive
Tiantouzai Village, where you will have a panoramic
view of the whole area of Jinkeng Rice Terrace. Jinkeng
rice terrace and villages here has not yet been known
to many tourist, the facilities here are difficult,
about 30 minutes extra drive then to Pingan village,
muddy and bumping road, that is part of the reason why
most of the drivers and tour guides will not take visitors
to this remote village.
This area is simply one of those amazing places on Earth.
The local minority Zhuang and Yao girls dressed in their
own colors may have a demonstration on hair combing
or singing and dancing upon guests' request and gratuity.
This is the best place to view the colorful minority
tribes of China. The life style, the primitive way of
production and culture of ethnic minorities might bring
you to the history of thousand years ...
