＞We're heading for Yuanyang in April next year. Can you advise whether the rice terraces will still have plenty of water in them mid April?
April is the time of rice planting will begin in Yuanyang.
I visited Yuanyang several times and as for visiting April---
*when i visited Yuanyang and stayed at Duoyishu village in the end of March to the begining April , almost of terraced fields had not begun rice planting and full of water but young rice plants were ready for planting here and there in small blocks of terraced fields.
*when i went to Laohuzui terraced fields from Duoyishu village at the same time, some rice paddies in Laohuzui were under planting and some rice paddies still had full of water,
*when i visited many villages and towns in Yuanyang July and August, of course, all rice terraces are full of green.
*when i stopped at Xinjie in the end of April this year(Apr.22-24) after traveling northern Yunnan & western Sichuan(i didn’t visit any big sites of terraced fields), Longshuba terraced fields that locates at 5km from Xinjie and famous for red colored rice terraces with a kind of aquatic weed) still had full of water--rice planting in Longshuba is annually at the beginning of May.
So the time of rice planting in Yuanyang(=the time having full of water) is different from each even in the same terraced fields, so if you visit Yuanyang mid April, some rice paddies had been already planted and some paddies still have full of water and if you really want to see all terraced fields having full of water , you should visit, at the latest, the biggining of April.
But in my personal opinion, terraced fields are very beautiful in all seasons and scene of rice planting is also very beautiful and impressive though I know the scene of all terraced fields having full of water is really amazing and photogenic but it’s only a part of beautiful scenes of terraced fields, and of course for getting it, you will miss other beautiful and interesting scenes for it.
As for me, i like terraced fields in all seasons--covered with full of water, covered with young rice plants all over terraced fields, covered with full of green in summer, covered with golden yellow color in harvest season, especially i like rice planting scene, and also like rice fields having misty atomosphere in rainy days.
Rice plants surely need all of them and strong sunshine in summer too for their growings till golden yellow colored harvesting time---and those are tremendously wide in each .
Have a nice trip next year!
