The Captivating Beauty of the Rubber Forest in Ha Tinh
Around the end of December to March, the vast rubber forests in Huong Khe district, Ha Tinh province undergo many changes.
To come here, visitors can travel on Ho Chi Minh Road, National Highway 15. They will have the opportunity to see the image of beautiful and dreamy rubber leaves.
Huong Khe district is considered as the rubber-growing capital of Ha Tinh province with more than 6,400 hectares. Rubber here grows thick and large. When the season changes, the leaves turn yellow and red.
The rubber tree is native to the Amazon forest, in South America. In the Maina dialect, "ouchouk" is the name for the rubber tree, which also means tears of the tree. Following in the footsteps of the French, rubber trees came to Vietnam in the late 19th century and quickly became the main industrial tree.
Because of the large area, the green leaves on the branches do not immediately turn yellow, but slowly turn green, then yellow, and finally turn red and fall off. When visitors see local people walking under the red rubber forest canopy, they often feel amused. The scene is dreamy and fanciful.
Here, people will see herds of storks flying next to the herd of grazing cows.
