The Yuan Yang Rice Terraces in Yunnan Province, China, at sunset. These terraces were hand carved out of the side of the mountain over thousands of years. Because of the cooler winters, only one rice crop is grown each year. You can see the new bright green rice plants in a few of the ponds. The rest are filled with water and reflecting the sunset. Soon, the rice plants will be planted in all of the ponds. These rice terraces are located about fifteen miles north of Vietnam.
