Mu Cang Chai Rice Terrace Paradise - CVT12
For the place being about 1000 meters above sea level, the steep hills make it almost impossible to grow rice fields like those in the delta. Thus local residences grow their own rice on the terraced fields, for the purpose of preventing water from flowing downhill.
These terraced fields lying among rugged green mountain valleys, under clear blue sky or a mysterious and thin fog layer, bring to eyes an imposing scenery.
During harvesting season, ready crops transitioned to yellow, while new crops still remain in their green color. The scenery is a big attraction to photographer and trekkers.
