With a sea of clouds over green mountains and its intricately terraced fields, Ziquejie Terrace in Xinhua county of Loudi city, Hunan province has recently become a major tourist attraction.

The awe-inspiring scenes have attracted a large number of visitors every day.

Ziquejie Terrace is a wonder of irrigation engineering and one of the first 19 important agricultural cultural heritages in the country. The core scenic area covers an area of more than 20,000 mu (1,333 hectares).

Tiers upon tiers of terraced fields, plus a sea of clouds above, creates a splendid sight to behold.
