China's terraced rice fields

Terraced fields in Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China. The people there have been developing this complex rice farming system out of dense forest for more than 1,300 years. These spectacular paddy fields that flow down from the majestic Ailao Mountains cover 16,603 hectares, and are an effective way to preserve water and protect against soil erosion.
