They were original built in Yuan Dynasty and completed in the early Qing Dynasty with a history of over 650 years.

The linked together rice terraces here vary from season to season - irrigated mirror-like terraces during the spring, lush green rice shoots in summer, the golden autumnal color of ripened paddy rice, and possibly layers of snow cover the terraces in the winter. The best time to visit the terraces depends on which of its seasonal beauty interests you most.
