Every year, when the summer rains pour down, bringing along a cool, refreshing air to the mountains, ethnic farmers in Moc Chau happily start to transplant rice seedlings on the fields, preparing for a new crop.

Moc Chau is famous for its tea hills and plum blossoms forests. However, not many people acknowledge the heart-melting beauty of the area during the watery season.

Seen from above, patches of rice fields under the bright sunlight look a lot like colorful field paintings some professional artists sketched out.

Not only the color, but the lining patterns also give the nature pictures their own charm.

Every year when June draws near, local farmers would pour water into the fields to prepare for the new planting season after a long time leaving the soil untouched. Mountainous farmers only have one crop per year, therefore, thorough preparation in advance is very important.

People of all ages, all walks of life rush into the fields to plow, uproot, and transplant rice.

People cut down branches of trees and plug into the fields to avoid the sun.

The high, uneven terrain makes it hard for locals to work as they don’t use science and technology to boost productivity. It’s their land labor that creates such unique nature paintings. Therefore, the watery season and the ripe rice season always attract domestic and foreign tourists to the Northwestern highland.
