“Beside Ha Giang, perhaps Mu Cang Chai is the place that leaves me the most emotions. This trip back to Mu Cang Chai had no previous plans and was really short for only 2 days 1 night (rather 1 and a half-day and 1 night), but it will be a memory that I remember forever. On this trip, I am not struggling with taking 8326482 photos like the other trips, but in exchange, a multitude of cute things “- these are the sharing of young loving travel girl – Hoang Linh Ha about Mu Cang Chai photo set and her memorable trip.
Mu Cang Chai is an upland district of Yen Bai province, located at the foot of Hoang Lien Son mountain range, at an altitude of 1,000 m above sea level. Each season of ripe rice, this place welcomes tens of thousands of domestic and foreign tourists.
Linh Ha’s photo set on Mu Cang Chai not only focuses on the beauty of the majestic and pristine nature but is also impressed by the simple, innocent, and simple beauty of the people here.
Different from city children – a “hard” summer days with smartphones, televisions, laptops or packed with extra classes, Mu Cang Chai children are happy with folk games such as bathing in streams, soccer, …
“I remember the happy smile of the staff at the accommodation, the children swim together under the sunset, the wandering days of watching the green rice stretching, take a real breath in the fresh air of the vast mountains and forests. I feel like I need nothing more than those peaceful days. It has been a long time since I was so free, “rememorized the young happy girl.
Sharing about the experience of moving and accommodation, Ha said: Most tourists choose to come to Mu Cang Chai on the autumn days from September to October to admire the scenery of the yellow color of terraced rice fields ripe. However, if you come here in July and August like Ha, you will have the opportunity to fully enjoy the peace and relaxation of this mountainous region.
“I booked a homestay room with the price of 280,000 VND, quite expensive but worth it. The room is large, lovely, with the window view straight to the terraced rice fields outside. The only minus point is the mosquitoes. You can solve that problem by sleeping net. The meal here costs 100,000 VND / person. The most impressive and delicious food is chicken offal and grilled chicken “, Ha shared.
Three places that Ha stopped during her trip: La Pan Tan commune, Khau Pha pass, and Lim Mong village
La Pan Tan is the place with the most terraced fields in Mu Cang Chai, about 700 hectares of terraced fields. This commune is famous for its cascading, layered terraced fields spreading throughout the hill, especially steep fields that look like beautiful “golden raspberries” like the fingerprints of heaven. The way up here is quite difficult because the slope is high, the road is small and winding.
Coming to Mu Cang Chai, visitors often stop at the halfway of Khau Pha pass to see Cao Pha valley full of rice color, four sides are mountains, majestic and magnificent mountains as the meaning of the name Khau Pha – “Sky’s Horn”. Standing from the side of the pass, look straight ahead, visitors can see a path like a thin thread stretching straight up into the sky. That far-off place is a small village called Lim Mong.
Lim Mong is a village of the H’Mong people, the ethnic of free and proud hearts, they mostly live in high mountains, where are the meeting of heaven and the earth. From the top of Lim Mong, looking towards Cao Pha – the stop point of so many tourists, many people were dumbfounded by the majestic beauty of nature. That beautiful picture is adorned with water-speckled stairs interwoven with the color of young seedlings planted by farmers days by months, years by years.
There are two beautiful times that you should come to Lim Mong: May, June – the flood season and between September to October – the rice season is ripe.
