VietNamNet Bridge – In May and June, when the first summer rain pour over mountains in the north of Vietnam, rain water is led to local terraced fields. Water overwhelms the field and softens the soil so that farmers can plant rice seedlings. This is the time for starting a new crop.

On mountains in Tu Le, Cao Pha, Mu Cang Chai (in the northern province of Yen Bai); Sa Pa, Y Ty, Muong Hum (in Lao Cai Province); Du Gia, Yen Minh, Dong Van (in Ha Giang Province); Hoang Su Phi, Coc Pai, Bac Ha (in Ha Giang and Lao Cai provinces), terraced fields sparkle with water in sun light.
This is one of the most beautiful season to visit such areas.
