Terraced fields in the rainy season

The rainy season is the time when the terraced fields gracing the mountains in Muong Hum, Den Sang, Sang Ma Sao, and Y Ty in Bat Xat district of Lao Cai province, look the most beautiful.
Created by generations of Dao, Mong, and Ha Nhi ethnic people, the terraced fields in Bat Xat have been there for hundreds of years. They are the masterpieces of the ethnic people living in these mountain areas.
The terraced fields are not only beautiful to see but also a very effective technique of cultivation, sustaining the local people as they attract a steady stream of tourists.
