Các bạn đừng bị nhầm lẫn: dưới dó là bức vẽ trừu tượng ..mà thật sự phong cãnh ỡ dưới là đúng thật như rứa. Thế dất cao -- có nơi lên dến 2000 mét --, thấp dã bắt buộc zân bãn xứ cũa Chệt: zống người Hani tạo các ruộng lúa từng tầng .. thêm vào dó, do khoáng chất khác nhau hòa trong dất, dã tạo ra các màu sắc tương phãn, trông rất dẹp mắt. Vùng nầy dược mệnh zanh là "cầu thang lên trời"..
Don't be fooled, it's not a painting: Incredible views of rice terraces that look like a stairway to heaven
These stunning images showing abstract swirls of colours and patterns could be mistaken for a collection of paintings.
But they are in fact photographs of the breathtaking Hani Rice Terraces, found in the mountains above Yuanyang, in south-west China.
They are often described as the 'stairway to heaven' because of the vast layers of land reaching heights of up to 2000 meters above sea level.
Stunning: Hani Terraces are located at Yuanyang County in Honghe Prefecture, Yunnan Province
The Hani people's ancestors came to the steep mountain area 2,500 years ago.
In their struggle against the difficult terrain they transformed the land into terraced rice paddies where they grew rice to make a living.
The creativity of the Hani people has not only transformed the area into a fertile area to grow rice but also a place of artistic beauty.
In recognition, the Ming Dynasty emperor granted the title of Skillful Sculpture to the Hani people and the fields have been officially acknowledged by UNESCO as a World Cultural and Natural Heritage site.
Over quite a long period of time the local people have cultivated a great number of rice species in their farming activities.
The site is protected by the laws of the People's Republic of China and support enough rice for hundreds of thousands of people.
Yuanyang county lies at an altitude ranging from 140 along the Red River up to nearly 3000 metres above sea level in the Ailao mountains and is about 50km north of the border with Vietnam.
During the winter to early spring season the entire field is irrigated with spring water from the forest above to rejuvenate and prepare for the next growing season.
There is only one harvest per year for the Yuanyang Rice Terrace and planting occurs from March to November every year.
