Hani Ethnic Minority

Toiling and multiplying among the rugged areas of the lofty, verdant Ailao Mountains in the south of Yunnan, the Hani ethnic minority mainly farm on mountainous and semi-mountainous areas. They traditionally live on farming, especially known for farming on terraced fields. 


In the Hani-inhabited areas, layers of terraced fields distribute along mountains from bottom to top. The Hani terraced fields in Honghe have been listed as a World Cultural Heritage site by the UNESCO.
