Terrace farms are a thing of beauty. These farms involve creating steps on mountain slopes for agricultural activities. This kind of cultivation activity prevents soil erosion during the rainy season and also makes for a pretty landscape for pictures. Most of the terrace farming takes place in the northern and northeast parts of the country. In the states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, step farming is the only type of farming feasible. The misty sky, lush green farms and little huts scattered here and there together make picture-perfect scenery that you could stare at forever.

Here are some stunning pictures of terrace farms across India.
