Golden fields of grain

Traveling 80km from Lao Cai city near the northern border in late September, you will have the chance to see the stunning terraced fields turning yellow in Y Ty commune of Bat Xat district.

At nearly 2,000m above sea level, the commune is usually shrouded in mist all year round. However, at this time of year, it suddenly brightens up with the ripening rice.

The rice cultivation around the hills has been practised by local people for generations as a unique method of farming in the northwestern region. (Source: VOV)
