Must-check-in destinations in Mu Cang Chai

The premier check-in place is La Pan Tan Commune which is home to a wide range of highest terraced fields in Mu Cang Chai. According to the author, the road leading to La Pan Tan is steep, small, and winding; therefore, tourists should travel by motorbikes. The romantic wooden house in the middle of the rice fields is one of the most renowned check-in spots here.

Khau Pha is one of the four great mountain passes in the northwestern region of Vietnam, along with O Quy Ho, Pha Din, and Ma Pi Leng. Khau Pha pass road is not as curved as one in Ma Pi Leng; so, it is quite easy to move, according to Zing News.

The author also recommends tourists should travel in groups and should not stay at Khau Pha Pass until evening since it is extremely deserted and dangerous.
