Hani terraced fields are magnificent and on a large-scale. They extend to many towns along the south bank of the Red River, such as Yuanyang, L¨¹chun and Jinping among others. With an area of more than 28,005.3 acres, the terrace in Yuanyang County is regarded as the core area of Hani terraces as the county is mountainous and the terraces built on the hillsides have a slope varying from 15 degrees to 75 degrees. The terraces rise by 3,000 steps forming a landscape that is rare both at home and abroad. In the main, the Yuanyang Hani terraces form three major scenic areas: Duoyishu scenic area, Bada scenic area and Laohuzui (the Tiger Mouth) scenic area. So many terraces set among vast forests, topped by an ocean of clouds create a magical, magnificent view.

Day 1 Arrive in Kunming

Arrive in Kunming, the start of this tour. Be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel for a good rest. If time is free, do visit soem beautiful city sites.

¡ªKunming: Known as the Spring City, Kunming (capital of Yunnan Province) is one of the most beautiful places in China, cradled in the foothills of the Himalayas and decorated with diverse flora and fauna - all wrapped up with a culturally rich history.

¡ª Golden Horse & Jade Rooster Square: Highlight here is the two archways, decorated with colorful painting and carvings, and the bird-wing-like rooftops are really beautiful. In the moring, you can see some locals practicing Tai-chi at here.

¡ª Flower & Bird Market: Also known as Old Street comprises several downtown blocks surrounded by gleaming modernity. Flowers and birds most certainly aren't the main draw here anymore. Instead, strollers pack this surreal hawker's ghetto and their mazelike neighbourhoods walk of stalls chock-full of endless curios, and knick-knacks, some occasionally fine rugs and handmade clothing, and hell of a lot of weird stuff.

¡ª Green Lake Park: This park is where you go to people-watch, practice Tai Chi or just hang with locals and stroll. The roads along the park are lined with wannabe trendy cafes, teahouse and shops. In November everyone in the city awaits the return of the local favorites, red-beaked seagulls.


Day 2 Kunming - Jianshui
Drive from Kunming to visit Stone Forest in Shilin County, then continue drive to Jianshui County and visit Confucian Temple There.
¡ªStone Forest: This is a natural wonder 83km southeast of Kunming. Spending the day there is a perfect way to see some of Yunnan's amazingly stark landscape. The place is breathtaking ¨C a lake, caves, gorgeous vistas of the surrounding countryside and stone formations projecting from the ground provide the feeling of being in a primeval forest.

¡ªJianshui Confucian Temple: Jianshui's famous temple was modeled after the temple in Confucius's hometown ¨C Qufu (Shangdong Province) and finished in 1285; it coveres 7.5 hectares and is the third-largest Confucian temple in China. It has operated as school for nearly 750 years. Thus give you large scope to explore.


Day 3 Jianshui - Yuanyang
Morning visit Zhu Family Garden in Jianshui County.In the afternoon enjoy the unique view of terraced fields in Laohuizhui in Yuanyang. The terraced fields are magnificently distributed on the southern bank of the Honghe River.

¡ªZhu Family Garden: This spacious 20,000©O complex is a fascinating example of Qing-era one-upping-the-Joneses, comprises ancestral buildings, family homes, ponds and secret gardens. Built it took 30 years. The Zhu family made its name through its mill and tavern. You can imagine its prosperous from the architecture.

¡ªLaohuzui (the Tiger Mouth) scenic area
The third dimension and the colorific hierarchy of Laohuzui is the most intense. The colors are as though they have been painted by an artist, while the terraced slopes are more rugged. The lowest section of the terrace is the most attractive and the outline resembles a galloping horse.


Day 4 Yuanyang
After enjoying your breakfast continue to enjoy the terraced fields at the other two best places: Duoyishu and Bada. After having lunch visit the Hani people,who are one of the earliest rice-cultivating ethnic groups in China.

¡ªDuoyishu scenic area
This is the most beautiful natural and cultural landscape of Yuanyang Terraces, and it is the best place to go if you wish to photograph the sunrise. The terraces in this scenic area, including Duoyishu, Aichun, and Dawazhe, are more than 1647.4 acres in total. Sunrise provides the most beautiful sight in Duoyishu as the morning there highlights the superlative dynamic landscape. As a kind suggestion, we recommend that you can pay special attention to the changing color of the water during the early morning sunrise. As the reflections and shadows are constantly changing, the visual impact can be overwhelming.

¡ªBada scenic area
It is the biggest attraction in terms of acreage of Yuanyang Terraces and the best of the sunset scenery can be seen here. The terraces here include the Qingkou, Quanfuzhuang, Malizhai, Zhulu and other contiguous areas extending over more than 2306.3 acres. The Bada terraces at sunset are truly amazing and the incessantly changing colors will make you feel that you are in a magical kingdom.

Day 5 Yuanyang - Kunming Departure
Drive back Kunming, trasnfer to Airport or Train Station for departure.
