Longsheng Rice Terraces

I arrived to Guilin airport from Guangzhou, took a bus to central bus station then another one to Longsheng. The bus dropped me off at some intersection and then I got picked up by a minivan to Ping An village

Two friendly and very enterprising Chinese ladies and Israeli hikers I met when hiking from Ping An to Da Zhai village. The ladies walk back and forth from Ping An to Da Zhai working as guides for tourists.

They don’t just let down their hair for free, I had to pay 15 RMB for this photo op.

This is how they live
