Since Yuan Dynasty, people here began to construct the fields innovative on the mountains. Now, the existing paddy fields covers an area of 66 square kilometers. Local People still grows the rice and the whole rice terrace fields take on green color in Jun and August, and become yellow layer of rip rice in late Sep and Oct.
