The rice terraces at Longji China are a huge tourist attraction, mainly for Chinese but also some adventurous westerners. People justifiably fawn over the amazing views so much that the hiking here is often overlooked- its a beautiful hike! Be warned though that like most rice terrace walks you are often on a very narrow “sidewalk” made of stepping stones and there is two way traffic. Although going when the fields are in peak beauty might seem wise, consider off season to avoid the 50,000 people bussed here each day who turn the entire path into gridlock. Consider hiking before 10am when its just you and the farmers to get an amazing hike. Of course, to do this requires an overnight stay considering how inaccesssble it is.
