Beautiful photos of China's rice terraces taken in Yunnan, Guangxi, and Guizhou provinces.
These pictures show how beautiful the landscape is, and they also send a message that it is a very tough and harsh life for those who have shaped the landscape. The provinces, located in southwest China, are where the landscapes are very hilly and people have to make the most of the mountains. They build these spectacular terraces for more effective farming.
