The Honghe Hani Rice Terraces, China, in Southern Yunnan, cascade down the slopes of the towering Ailao Mountains to the banks of the Hong River. Over the past 1300 years, the Hani people have developed a complex system of channels to bring water from the forested mountaintops to the terraces. They have also created an integrated farming system that involves buffalos, cattle, ducks, fish and eel and supports the production of red rice.
