Tiger Mouth Rice Terraces

The Tiger Mouth Rice Terraces (Laohuzui Rice Terraces) are situated about 20 kilometers from downtown of Yuanyang. The best moment to enjoy the marvelous rice terraces view is during the sunset period. Literally translated from Chinese, Laohuzui means 'the mouth of the tiger'. It seems it is possible to distinguish the form as a tiger mouth in the rice fields; while some others think it's kind of the shape of a horse.

Every sunset in Laohuzui, numerous of photographers from entire China come to disputes themselves for a one-foot space just because of the perfect position to set up their tripods. Start from every May, the Laohuzui rice fields turn into green from yellow right after the farmers did the rice seedlings at the end of spring.
