Yuan Yang Terraced Fields : The Terraced Fields of the Hani People in YuanYang are located in southern Yunnan, China.  The whole area is filled with tall mountains cut by deep valleys.  The terraced fields and sea of clouds form a uniquely majestic and beautiful scene.  In the past hundreds of years, the diligent and intelligent minorities of Hani, Yi, Miao and Yao who lives in the mountain have opened up this splendid terrace.  The terrace extends thousands of miles (360,000 mu) and is regarded as one of the wonders of the World.  After every spring festival, farmers reserve water to nourish the fields.  From that comes the wonderful scene formed by the dark color of the ridges and lights reflected from waters in the fields, in all shapes and curves.  In the early morning, under the continuous heavy fog, with colorful reflections in shallow water and heavy mountain slopes, the yuanyang terraced fields look just like traditional Chinese paintings, an epitome of man and nature in harmony.

Li Jiang, Shangrila, 2007 : Impression of Li Jiang and Shangrila in 12/2007: 
Wrong season for sure -- no Spring or Autumn colors, nor winter snow 
Lijiang -- way overly commercialized, the famous old town is only worth viewing from afar 
Shangrila -- no feeling of reaching the "Lost Horizon". Everybody told us to come back in Spring. But then it will be full of tourists. 
Missed Melli Snow Mt this round -- something for next time.
