Winter (Middle November ~ January)
Winter in Yuanyang is wet and cold, with the lowest temperature to 2°C during the day. Although the rice terraces are filled with water in winter, it takes some luck to see them as most days are foggy.
- Trekking in the Rice Terraces
While most visitors just take photos at the viewpoints, the best way to experience the real life of the local people is to hike through the rice fields and villages.
Along the way, you will meet local people working in the fields, as well as various animals. Buffalo, horses, chickens, ducks, and geese swimming in the terraces. Not only can you enjoy the views along the way, but it’s also fun. It’s not difficult, the paths are easy to follow, and it doesn’t take long. We recommend walking from the Yanzijiao Village to the Azheke Village in the afternoon. At the end of the hike, you can visit Azheke Village, which is a well-preserved and pristine Hani village.
