Mu Cang Chai Rice Terrace Fields, stretch across the mountainside, layer by layer  ascending endlessly on through 2,200 hectares of rice terraces. Of which, 500 hectares of terraces of 3 communes such as La Pan Tan, Che Cunha and Ze Xu Phinh, Mu Cang Chai Rice Terrace have been recognized as one of the unique landscapes of Vietnam, it is the highest ranked national landscape since 2007.

Due to its topography with steep slopes, the terraced fields have a narrow width, so the distance from terrace to terrace is about 1m to 1.5m, demanding that water sources on the land and ground for growing rice are available on the slopes of mountains. So Hmong people thought of a way to keep water by making the land into coasts on the mountain to create the leveling rice terrace fields.

The pick-up point for the water source was taken from the source field upper points such as stream, and waterfalls where it can flow down the coasts to the low points of rice terrace fields, A bamboo tree  is cut half of it used as a tool pipe for getting water into the fields, according to Hmong People’s experience of working on it, they get water into the first terrace then make the water door to second terrace in the middle of the  fielding coast, then opening the gate at  the ending of the coast. That method is to avoid  flooding and washing away the soil’s fertility.

And to create the contour of each piece of land, Hmong people make the water balance of each terrace by  moving water from a high place up on the coast down to the low land so the fields on the  surrounding hills are kept at the same water level, creating the beautiful rice terraces of the mountain. Mu Cang Chai rice terrace fields is an evidence  to the masterstroke of human hand – Hmong People in the renovation of nature, to create an unique beautiful landscape of North-Vietnam “Mu Cang Chai Rice Terrace Field”. In  recent years, Mu Cang Chai has been one of outstanding Vietnam Tours to visit A most impressive place in the north of Vietnam, particularly the rice harvest coming at the beginning of the 1st - 10th of October of the year when it is the best time to visit Mu Cang Chai.
