Hoang Su Phi is a remote mountain district in the north of Ha Giang province. There are 12 communes and 1 town in the district where is home to 12 ethnic groups including Kinh, Dao, Tay, and Mong.

As a poor mountain district, its economy depends largely on agriculture. The locals cultivate rice, grow tea and raise animals like buffaloes, cows, goats, pigs, and chickens for a living. The district has more than 3,600 hectares of terraced fields, of which about 1,380 hectares span 11 communes. In December 2011, terraced fields of Hoang Su Phi were recognized as Vietnam Cultural Heritage by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The main harvest season of the district is from mid-September to mid-October. In this season, people have a chance to see golden rice fields span over the mountain slopes, stretching to the horizon. There are stilt houses and huts of the locals among the mountains. All of them create a majestic golden picture.

The scenery takes visitors’ breath away while photographers marvel at the picturesque horizon. Moreover, the locals are very friendly and hospitable.

Let’s look at some photos of Hoang Su Phi in the harvest season.
