Yunhe terraces


Here's a nice aerial view of the Yunhe Rice Terraces in Southeastern China, compliments of jojodidi.  The terraces are located in Yunhe County, which sits in the inland (western) portion of Zhejiang, the coastal province immediately to the south of Shanghai.  These are the largest set of rice terraces in eastern China; there are up to 700 individual "layers" in places.  The terrace area covers just over 50 square km or just under 20 square mi.; the highest of them sit at about 1.4k meters or around 5.6k ft. above sea level.
