The vast terraced slopes in Youxi county, Sanming, which is located in East China's Fujian province, boast a long history of over 1,200 years.

The terraces are all 1.5 meters wide with a vertical drop of more than 600 m, making it virtually impossible for mechanized farming.

The terraces received the Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems award from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2018. Check out the video!
