Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces

Today, we took a trip out to LongSheng to see the infamous Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces. The ride to the terraces was a little frightful as we had to weave through the moutains on unpaved roads with large boulders on the sides from the landslides. They dropped us off at a couple minority villages where we saw some dried fried rats.

These are the baskets the minorities carry their goods in.

The hike up to peak number 2 of the terraces was pleasant. It was amazing to see the sheer size of it all... quite magnificent.

Next stop ... Guilin for a couple days!

They look like rats.. not sure! We've seen too many things in front of restos in the last little while.. it's amazing what Chinese people eat.
