Mu Cang Chai is the best place if you want to escape from the hot weather. Talking about this place, maybe the poverty and backwardness is the first thing comes to your mind. It is a place of exceptional beauty and importance for the protection of the unique biodiversity found only here and for many people who live around the forest.  The main reason makes the magical beauty of Mu Cang Chai lies in its 700 hectares of terraced rice fields. The best time to visit Mu Cang Chai is from the last 2 weeks of September until the middle of October.  All of them are harmonizing under the sunshine. This is the period of time when the rice is in full blossom and the harvest is taking place. Surrounded by mountains and hills, terraced rice fields are stretched from the tops down to the feet and overwhelmed the whole valley, making a giant colorful carpet. The feeling of passing some roads beside the vertical cliffs, to be sucked in cool wind will be in your mind forever. Setting your foot on Mu Cang Chai, it reminds you immediately about one of the Robert Frost poems. Vietnam travel tours

A drive to the top of Khau Pha will take you through a thick mountainside pine forest- a rarity in Vietnam. A mountain district off the beaten path is the home to the same stunning sceneries which were created by many terraced fields stretching down. To reach Mu Cang Chai from Tu Le, you have to pass the road which climbs from Khau  Pha Mountain- the highest mountain in Mu Cang Chai to Khau Pha pass. Khau Pha pass comes quite difficult to go. However going to the other side of the pass, the clear blue sky appears step by step.

Both the foreigners and locals are amazed at the beauty masterpiece from the shining green seasons in Mu Cang Chai terraced fields. What a unique experience! Besides exploring this land, it will be greater if you can combine your trip with charity activity. It makes your trip to Mu Cang Chai more meaningful. Highly recommended place if you want to find a nice and peaceful hostel to stay here
