Beautiful Seasonal Changes in Hue's Mangrove Forest
Ru Cha is a primeval mangrove forest in Tam Giang lagoon, Thuan Hoa village, Huong Phong commune, Huong Tra town, Thua Thien Hue province. According to the local people, Ru means forest, and Ru Cha means the forest of Cha (excoecaria agallocha) trees.
Recently, the photo series of Ru Cha in autumn was captured by young photographer Le Dinh Hoang (born in 1993 in Hue), attracting the internet community. The photos were taken in the middle of September, at the beginning of autumn, when the Cha trees took the costume change.
The mangrove forest, spanning 5 hectares, provides habitat for thousands of ancient Cha trees which reduce salinity, and protect the aquatic resources, and the land. In autumn, the mangrove forest becomes a tourist attraction where people all around come to see its beauty and take pictures.
Taking a look at the photos, people can find a dreamy, tranquil, wild, mysterious, and magical forest. As a native of Hue, Hoang always aspires to promote the beauty of nature and people of his motherland to the world.

There is a well-known story of an U80 couple, Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Dap and Mrs. Tran Thi Hong, who have lived in the mangrove forest for 38 years. They choose to isolate themselves from the outside world, spending their whole lives to protect the only primeval mangrove forest on Tam Giang lagoon.
