Hani Terraced Fields Festival

Last updated by fabiowzgogo at 2015/6/8

Hani terraced fields in Yuanyang enjoy a long historical standing, with a history of over 1,300 years. Yuanyang Hani terraced fields are situated at the south of Mount Ailao in Yuanyang County of Yunnan Province, which are masterpieces left by Hani nationality from generation to generation. As Yuanyang County is filled with lofty mountains and high ranges, all the terraced fields are built on mountain slopes, which looks magnificent and breathtaking. In order to present the marvelous landscape, the rich and colorful folk customs of Hani nationality and time-honored farming culture, Hani Terraced Fields Festival is held annually in late November in Yuanyang in the southwest of Yunnan Province.
