     The terraces like ribbons and chains full of the mountains. The mountains looks just like giant snails or a huge fan. Some like mirror with different shapes. On this wide land, footpath wriggles between terraces. Folk songs linger in between mountains.
    
     It is hard to imagine that 800 years ago howthe first batch of Zhuang and Yao people faced to the deep mountains and forests, and how they rely on original slash-and-burn agriculture and cultivate the first field.

From Yuan Dynasty to Qing Dynasty, for about 650 years, the amazing landscape of rice terraces were finally completed.
