Hi, the best time to see the Yuanyang terraced fields are November, December, January, February, March and April. These months are known as the best time for photographing the paddy fields because after harvesting in Oct., irrigation starts in the beginning of Nov. and will last to next April. It is critical that the paddy fields are filled with water during the time. Water in the terraced fields reflects mountains and blue sky, the mountains are covered in the morning mist, and the terraces look like great chains. This dream-like scene is surely amazing.
