next visit is the rice fields cascading
from the hills to the valleys. It allows
you to see the scenic view of the clear
water reflecting the blue sky. Scattering
around the field are water buffalos
pulling a harrow through the mountain
soil. During the period between July
and August, farmers will go through
the paddy pulling seedlings up and burying
them beneath the mud. The golden rice
fields are prevalent scenery in the
area since the middle of September definitely
contributed to the fresh and romantic
landscape of our resort.
The rice harvesting in October
is an attractive activity for observation. Farmers use
their right hand to hold a small sickle, which is concealed
from the rice plant so as not to frighten them. Then,
each stalk is cut individually and transferred to the
left hand. Traditionally, the person doing the threshing
received one stalk from each bundle.
