The terrace fields in the water season in Lao Cai are more beautiful when reflecting the sun.
The water season is the ideal time for travelers to explore the northern mountainous region.
Tran Minh Dung (Ho Chi Minh City) said that he had wandered from Lao Cai city and saw many terraced fields in Bat Xat district such as Muong Hum – Sang Ma Sao – Den Sang – Y Ty and Thien Sinh valley (photo) ).
When the first rains bring water to the field is the farmer enters the new crop. The water season in Bat Xat district lasts from May to June every year.
The fields can be transplanted sooner or later depending on the weather and its location, creating different colors for the whole field. Above is the water season in Sang Ma Sao commune.
Sàng Ma terraced fields are nestled on a curving road around hillsides at an altitude of about 2,000 m. Visitors can see each group of farmers going down to the banks, leading the buffalo to the land, while the other group transplanting rice creates a lively atmosphere.
Green patches gradually form on the fields in Thien Sinh valley after being planted by farmers, promising a prosperous new crop.
“In this water season in Lao Cai, the water from one field to another will bring the color of silt mixed with the color of the reflective sky, making me feel like I am looking at a painting.”, Photographer Minh Dung share.
In Bat Xat District, visitors district can experience the cultural life of ethnic groups such as Ha Nhi, Mong, Dao or Giay. Each ethnic group has its own specific life, but one thing in common is when they go to the field, they use buffaloes plowing to prepare the soil for transplanting. They have difficulty using a plow machine to do that because of the narrow width of the terraced fields.
Children often follow their parents to help out or play around in the fields. When meeting with “strangers”, they shyly stand by and watch but then quickly get acquainted, and are not afraid to pose in front of the lens.
