Rice paddies cover the mountainsides of Yuanyang County, China. Constructed in “steps” by the Hani people for the last 1300 years, the slope of the terraces varies from 15 to 75 degrees with some having as many as 3,000 steps! The stunning colors that you see here are indeed real and result from the presence of water and certain plants within the terraces.
