Spring is the season of flower convergence; when the earth changes its clothes, nature also wears on itself a freshness and is full of life. Mu Cang Chai is no exception. In the spring, this place becomes brilliant, glorifying a new coat filled with the colors of the flowering flowers. Create a sweet, poetic setting in a mountainous region of Northwest Vietnam. This is a very interesting destination that visitors should not miss if they want to explore the wild beauty and life of the inhabitants of this place.

Spring In Mu Cang Chai


Mu Cang Chai is a small mountain town in the western part of Yen Bai Province, northwest of Vietnam. Local people here are very friendly, hospitable, some of them can communicate with foreign tourists by English, so this destination is a very attractive place for both international and domestic visitors. Tourists who set foot here will be immersed in the golden tones of the sun and the rice fields. There is no need to go deeper into each and every one of the Mongs’ villages; right on the highway, visitors can also see the “golden sea” of rice rolling in the scent of the vast land. 

How's the spring in Mu Cang Chai? 

Mu Cang Chai in spring often has a little drizzle or tiny vapors flying in the air in the morning, giving us a feeling of a little cold. By the time the sun had risen, each warm ray of the sun shone onto the fields of the bending stairs and all over the brightly yellowed hillside, all of which formed a gentle symphony of nature. The average temperature in January – April is 9 – 15 °C. So here in the spring, we can feel the warmth that nature brings to this place.
Tips: When you come to Mu Cang Chai in the spring, you should prepare a warm coat because the temperature here is a little low. You should also prepare a small umbrella to protect yourself from the rain or the salt fog, and prepare a beautiful pair of shoes to walk on the road here.

Around February, the rapeseed on the fields of the Mu Cang Chai terraced fields blossomed again, glowing brilliantly and lightening the forest space. Therefore, visitors can trek to get into the fragile and warm, but also full of vitality rapeseed hills located in La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha commune, racing to bloom with pine and purple hills. The rapeseed flowering season is a time for many visitors to explore and record brilliant moments. All of them made a beautiful and gentle Mu Cang Chai as a shy but beautiful girl.

Ba Nha Bridge is an unforgettable point. The Ba Nha bridge area is often visited by tourists to take beautiful photos. When you get to this place, you'll be able to explore the culture of the people, see terraced fields and admire the beautiful scenery. My suggestion to you is that the sloping road next to the bridge is the perfect place to have unique images to check in. It's also a pretty interesting place to find a unique place to check-in for photographers or young art lovers because of the splendid scenery of beautiful wilderness intersecting gray smoke on the roofs of Trinh Tuong houses or in the virtual fog early tomorrow, behind the majestic mountains. All made a beautiful and gentle Cang Cheng as a shy girl.

Visiting Mo waterfall. If you have spent many days exploring the beauty and poetry of the terraced fields that stretch all over Mu Cang Chai, visiting the famous high waterfalls will give visitors a new and exciting experience. Mo waterfall is situated between the Na Hang B and Na Hang A mountain peaks, belongs to Mo De commune, Mu Cang Chai district. Mo waterfall is deep in the slopes of the mountains and blends with the green carpet of the forest which makes its beauty touch the heart. At the foot of the waterfall, you will see the white water flowing down, woolen in the bright colors of the dream flowers, plums in about January creating a very poetic scenery. The Mo fall is like a painting full of poetry in the middle of the majestic Northwest forest.

Participate in adventurous activities 

Challenge yourself with the Khau Pha pass – one of the four highest slopes in the Northwest region – not only offers an exciting experience but also offers the opportunity to see the Lim Mong and Lim Thai valleys in a panoramic way. On the way, visitors will be fascinated by the views of the green hills, the fresh streams and the surrounding jungle. Taking part in adventurous activities such as conquering Khau Pha pass is an opportunity to challenge yourself and create unforgettable memories on your Northwest exploration journey.

Visit the 60-year-old Mu Cang Chai bamboo forest that still preserves the wilderness, covered in the blue of hundreds of thousands of straight trees. This is a place that a lot of tourists come to check-in, and many people come here to resemble it as a real-life sword fighting scene. However, the road to the forest is rather difficult because of the many small paths, if you go on the day with early spring rain, the path can be very muddy, making it difficult to walk. This is a rather exciting challenge for travelers who want to test their perseverance and the result is a sighting of the forest.

After crossing the Lung Lo pass, you can reach the Giang stream. Spring is the best time to travel to the Giang stream. This is a time when the weather is a little cold, extremely pleasant and cool. During this time, culinary and cultural activities are ongoing, especially when H’Mong people are celebrating a festival to honor Shan Tuyet tea– a fairly big and interesting festival. Visitors come here not only to take a walk under the vast primitive forest trees, but also to pick up tea and drink tea with the friendly H’Mong girls. In addition, you will be immersed in the mysterious, sacred atmosphere of the festivals, such as the Thai New Rice, etc.
