What Makes Mu Cang Chai Rice Terraced Fields In Yen Bai Province A Favorite Destination To Visit

Located in Yen Bai province in the north, Mu Cang Chai is emerging as an ideal place to visit in Autumn.

Mu Cang Chai is a rural district of Yen Bai province, in the northwestern region of Vietnam. The rice terraced fields in Mu Cang Chai stretch across 2,200 hectares of the mountainside, in between with narrow layers of terraces ranging from between 1m and 1.5m wide.

From the middle of September to October every year, it is the time for golden hues of harvest in Mu Cang Chai, when the land turns exceptional bright yellow, attracting thousands of domestic visitors to admire the view of some of most beautiful terraced fields in the country.

It is a known fact that the ancestors of northern Vietnam’s local hill tribes had back then created this place of practicality for the basic purpose – to survive.

To grow rice in vertical conditions, the local hill tribes purposely created the terraced system to control the downward flow of water. In return, the man-made practicality for survival becomes a perfect picturesque of attraction, thereby attracting Vietnamese people to come and admire the breathtaking scenery.

Through generations after generations, the terraced rice fields are a deep-rooted cultural heritage invented by the local people, reflecting the traditions that everyone talks about and wants to contemplate.
