Terraced field in Mu Cang Chai province 


Many activities will be arranged in the week, including art performances, exhibitions, and a Muong Lo cake festival, among others. 

Accordingly, the Miss Muong Lo contest is slated for October 12, while a carnival with the participation of 100 artists and an art performance will take place the next day.

Notably, the “Yen Bai - Heritage Journey” programme which will start on October 13 morning will be a highlight of the events. 

Meanwhile, the Mu Cang Chai Terraced Field Festival will also feature various activities, such as a contest of H’Mong panpipe performance, a goat fight, community tourism activities and a photo exhibition on terraced paddy fields by domestic famous photographers. 

Earlier, Yen Bai decided to suspend all recreational activities in the province, including the Muong Lo Tourism-Culture Week and the Mu Cang Chai Terraced Field Festival, due to President Tran Dai Quang’s sudden passing.

Mu Cang Chai has 500 hectares of rice terraces in La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha and De Xu Phinh communes, cultivated by the H'mong people for centuries. The local terraces are among the 2,500 hectares recognised as national heritage sites in 2007 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The locality is about 1,000 metres above sea level, making it impossible to grow rice the same way as in the plain. Local residents grow rice in terraced fields to make the full use of the limited water flow.

Terraced fields in Mu Cang Chai are beautiful year-round. Visitors in March can see glittering ponds before locals start to cultivate rice between April and May. After May, the hills are covered in green until the fields start to turn golden with ripening rice in early September.
