The Dragon's Backbone Walk
The Dragon's Backbone Walk, China
For those who enjoy a little more exercise, the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces at Longji offer a fantastic opportunity to get out into the countryside and visit some wonderful, traditional villages.
From Pingan your guide will take you back to your car, and you will drive further up the valley to the village of Dazhai. Here your driver waves you off, and together with your guide you walk the 5-6 hours back through the terraces to Pingan.
You break the journey with lunch at a Zhuang minority village along the route, arriving back at your guesthouse mid-afternoon.
