- During the harvest season of water bamboos, you can take pictures of the verdant terraced fields
- September to November is the harvest season of water bamboo in Sanzhi
Hengshan was formerly known as Hengshankan. It is a hilly area with significant height differences. In the early days, as Sanzhi is surrounded by mountains and the sea, the plain area was not wide enough. In order to grow more rice, the ancestors developed terraces along the terrain, making terraced fields a famous Sanzhi sight. Nowadays, Hengshan Terraces are no longer used for planting rice, but instead became the home of water bamboos. September to November each year is the harvest season of Sanzhi water bamboos. Visitors to Hengshan Terraces during this season can enjoy the scenery of terraced fields in autumn, bamboo picking activities, and tasty water bamboos, making a fun and satisfying farm trip.

Maoao Ancient Stone Houses
Looking towards the right from Fulian Elementary School, visitors would find a small fishing village settlement not far away, and it is exactly the Maoao Fishing Port. After enjoying water activities by the shore, visitors could follow the Northern Coastal Highway and travel towards the east to the Maoao Fishing Port. Before entering the Fishing Port, there are several ancient stone houses nearby; the stone materials exactly came from sandrocks by the seashore, the roof trusses came from the bamboos in the back mountains, and the roof thatched with grass straw. This “drawn from locally available materials” way of building the ancient houses is full of our ancestors’ wisdom! Today, these stone ancient houses are mostly deserted and slowly crumbling down, so hurry and come capture traces of history before they are completely gone!
