The Picturesque Landscape of Mu Cang Chai in the Watering Season

In May, the picture of Yen Bai rang out with the brown color of the land blending with the sky and the iridescent water under brilliant sunshine.

In the water season, Mu Cang Chai wears its self with a new colorful shirt, no less glamorous than the time of harvest season in October.

Brown soil, flashed color water and sun, the green of young paddy... terraced fields on the Khau Pha valley, creating a beautiful picture fascinated every traveler.

Due to the lack of land for cultivation, the local Hmong, Thai in Mu Cang Chai must break halfway up the mountain land to grow paddy. They take advantage on the first rainfall of the summer and the sun to leadwater into the fields.

They also take water from the streams through the bamboo tube into the fields to plow.

The water flows from the height and then spreads into the whole field.

The beginning of water season is the time when H'Mong ethnic people began to plow their fields. They expressed the solidarity by gathering a group of people to transplant from one family to another.

The fog on the rice terrace is a popular picture of Pu Nhu Tribe Village, La Pan Tan Commune. This is also the time when the highland people take their buffalo or baskets of paddy seeds to the fields.


The water season in Mu Cang Chai lasts from May to the end of June. You can reach the town by bus or motorcycle on the direction of Hanoi - Than Uyen (Lai Chau).

La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha, Ba Nha Bridge, and the Thai Village are the most famous attractions that visitors cannot ignore when traveling to Mu Cang Chai District.
