Ping’an Village rests atop the peak of Longsheng, along with the famous rice terraces, 1200 meters above sea-level.
Here old traditions and local culture are still thriving for all of the 50 families living there. A famous example is that Yao women in the village only cut their hair once during their lifetime and that’s when they become adults at the age of 18 years.

If you have a chance to see the long hair show performed by the Yao women, you will see that there are three bunches of hair on their head. The first bunch is the natural hair growing on their head. The second bunch is the hair which was cut off when they were 18 years old. The third bunch of hair comes from the hair which falls out when they comb their hair daily.

The village features scenic narrow mountain roads leading to the peak and offering a splendid view of the vast rice fields made up on different terrace levels, each one nicknamed by locals according to their varying shapes.
