Why Discover Mu Cang Chai rice terraces is special ?

Mu Cang Chai Terraced Rice Field is more beautiful than any other site such as Hoang Su Phi, a mountainous region in Ha Giang. The terraced rice fields naturally rise and fall around the hillsides, mountainsides, streams, and rivers. It creates the gigantic yellow staircases for everybody to step from earth to heaven.

In a word, the green and yellow terraced fields are now the symbols of the mountainous region. Mu Cang Chai is among the top destinations for any nature lover who likes photographing the natural essentials and the life of the ethnic minority groups.

The highlights of this destination are predominantly in its terraced rice fields in Che Cu Nha, La Pan Tan, and De Zu Phinh villages.
