Incredible Terrace Fields Around The World

In order to make the best of poor soil conditions and to help water conservation across mountainous terrain, terraced farming was introduced by various cultures around the globe.

Terrace fields are extremely labor intensive to construct, however the method of terracing allowed the farming land to support civilization’s increased need for the supply of fresh crops, livestock and poultry. Erosion was avoided, rain and runoff water was preserved more readily and essentially otherwise unused hillside became arable and usable due to this new form of terraced agriculture.

Not only do these terraced fields provide essential goods and arable supplies for the local people and communities that they serce but they also feature some of the most spectacular and engaging landscapes in the whole world today. Check out these incredible terrace fields around the world for an idea of the complex designs and visionary landscapes that will surely take your breath away.
