Golden Rice Wave Festival

Immerse in seas of golden rice

At the East Rift Valley, sunshine can be enjoyed all year round, and water remains crystal clear all the time. The soil is fertile, making it a major origin of production of rice. During the Japanese Occupation, the valley’s superior rice had even been dedicated to the emperor. Today, more kinds of rice are produced: other than Chihshang rice, which is used to make the famous Chihshang Lunch Box, there is also the Yuxi Rice of Yuli, Fuli Rice of Fuli, Guanshan Rice of Guanshan, Fulu Rice of Luye, and Red Sticky Rice of Guangfu, all of which have been award winners.

The valley is also noted for its seasonal rice field views. The lush green rice fields in spring and summer, as well as the seas of golden rice in autumn, accompanied by expansive meadows and graceful mountains, make this place a resonating one. With nature and the industry co-existing in harmony, the valley even reminds one of a musical concerto.

Because the rice fields usually look rather bleak in winter, over the last few years, farmers have been advised to grow scenic green plants during this time of a year. Rape seeds are planted after rice harvests. Soon, seas of yellow flowers brighten up the dark green mountains in the background and the deep blue sky above. Recently, even garden cosmos have been grown. Blooming, they turn the valley into a colorful painting. The extensive fields of flowers have attracted many to appreciate their beauty. Such has become a much promoted sight of the East Rift Valley in winter.
