Northwest Vietnam Mountain Cycling Tour 9Days
Itinerary: Hanoi – La Phu – Nghia Lo – Tu Le – Mu Cang Chai – Than Uyen – Sa Pa – Lao Chai – Ta Van – Ban Ho – Hanoi
Though farmers in Mu Cang Chai are harvesting paddy on the last parts of their terraced fields, the remote mountainous district of Yen Bai Province still boasts its charms that are hidden in the scenic rice fields and thin blankets of fog at the beginning of the winter.
The popular attraction of Mu Cang Chai lies in its terraced rice fields which are primarily situated in the district’s Che Cu Nha, La Pan Tan and De Zu Phinh villages. These imposing fields draw a large number of both Vietnamese and foreign travelers who love to take pictures of and indulge themselves in the amazing beauty of the national heritage site.
Visitors do not have to exert much effort to view the natural wonder; they can see a picturesque range of terraced fields along National Road 32 after going through Khau Pha Pass, which winds more than 20 kilometers when coming from Hanoi.
That is the option for those who do not have enough time to wander up and down hills and mountains of the terraced fields. Of course, when one is further from the road, the more beautiful terraced rice fields are visible.
