Yuanyang Transportation Map - How to Get to/around Yuanyang Rice Terraces
Tourists usually get to Yuanyang Rice Terraces from Kunming, the capital of Yunnan. With a driving distance for about 320km, it takes about 5.5~6 hours from Kunming to Yuanyang Rice Terraces directly by car. Considering the driving journey is relatively long and tough, visitors prefer to make a stop at Jianshui Old Town, which is settled just in between.
In such a natural terraces spot in the remote area, hiking is always the best way for sightseeing. And due to its large size, tourists normally need to ask a local van to make transfers between the terraces areas.

How to Plan a Yuanyang Rice Terraces Tour
Being the world's most extensive terraces clusters, Yuanyang Rice Terraces is without a shadow of doubt one of the highlights of Yunnan and even China! However, adventurous backpackers and die-hard photography fans aside, few people check this gem hidden in the deep mountain out. We would suggest you to go if you have more days in Yunnan, particularly when you are philately of world-class beautiful natural scenery and unique minority culture and life.
A Yuanyang Rice Terraces tour usually starts from Kunming and needs about 3 days around. In the 3 days there, you will get all the best treasures like amazing sunset, sunrise and multi-colored rice fields...
Since Jianshui Old Town is located conveniently on the way from Kunming to Yuanyang, you are also suggested to take a short visit to Jianshui first before your Yuanyang tour!
Want more surprises of the diverse Yunnan? Why not extending your tour to more top destinations in one go, such as Kunming famous as Spring City and convenient province capital, Lijiang to meet the best ancient town, mountain and gorge, Dali with profound Dali Old Town and splendid Erhai Lake, Xishuangbanna with exciting tropical flavor and Dai ethnic dances, etc., which usually needs 6-15 days based on your exploration depth!
