The Cultural Landscape of Honghe Hani Rice Terraces, a UNESCO’s world heritage site, covers 16,603-hectares in Southern Yunnan, China. It is marked by spectacular terraces that cascade down the slopes of the towering Ailao Mountains to the banks of the Hong River. Over the past 1,300 years, the Hani people have developed a complex system of channels to bring water from the forested mountaintops to the terraces. The stars are beautifully reflected in the calm water on this clear night.
