The world-famous Yuanyang rice terraces are located deep in the mountains of Yunnan. To get in, take the bus from Kunming to Yuanyang and then take a mini bus or cab even higher up the mountains to one of the small villages in the area (I stayed at Timeless Youth Hostel in Pugao Laozhai which was great). You can explore the rice terraces by hiking, bus or cab. For the best views get up at sunrise. The villagers all wear their traditional dress as part of their day-to-day life.
