Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces

I saw this the other night on China Revealed and it just blew me away. Thought I would share:

About 80 km north of Guilin China is a vast region of terraced rice fields -- Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces -- the most amazing in the world. They were built over 300 years from the late 1200s to the early 1600s, during the Yuan and Qing Dynasty's, and are still actively maintained and farmed today.

That is such a cool picture! Although I thought it was the 18th hole at a golf course at first.
