Located about 300 km south of Kunming, Yuanyang terrace lies in Yuanyang County, in southeastern Yunnan Province. With a total area of 11,000 hectares, the terrace is regarded by some as the largest and most spectacular terrace in the world. It is a natural masterpiece, plowed by the bare hands of the Hani ethnic people 1,000 thousand years ago, and it is still in use today. During winter days, the whole terrace is covered by a layer of mist, evoking the typical atmosphere of a traditional Chinese ink and wash painting. Catching a sunrise or sunset on the terrace at this time will make visitors marvel at the wonder of nature. (chinapic.people.com.cn/by Da Hai Wu Bian)
