One of the most beautiful places on earth, the rice terraces of Yuanyang, are a site to behold. Beyond their striking beauty, they are also an incredible example of sustainability. The system of terraces has been around for 1,300 years and has provided a constant source of rice (and protein) for this area. The Hani people who farm this way have a commitment to preservation that has resulted in their own ability to survive. Watch the video to have your mind blown.
