Dongzhi Terraced Rice Field is the largest one in Qingyang as well as in the whole loess plateau. Dongzhi Terraced Rice Field is never a range of mountains with floating yellow sands, but little vegetation as commonly assumed of. Quite on the contrary, it is a luxuriant green open terraced field.
On this terrace there is also the famous cave dwellings tourism. As a local poem goes, "though there are no grand buildings in my home to receive the distinguished guests from far away, but we are ready to offer them these cave dwellings, which are cool in summer and warm in winter". This is actually the best description of the Qingyang cave dwellings. Nowadays, the caves are no longer serving the major task as residence for people, rather there are standing there just to signify the origin and the strenuous struggles of Qingyang people as well as the splendid civilization they have created in history.
