Tu Le is one village of Van Chan district Yen Bai province, about 265 km north of Ha Noi, in the North West Vietnam region. The Tu Le village is home to the HMong and Thai community. For the place being about 960 meters above sea level, the steep hills make it almost impossible to grow rice fields like those in the delta.
Thus local residences grow their own rice on the terraced fields, for the purpose of preventing water from flowing downhill. These terraced fields lying among rugged green mountain valleys, under clear blue sky or a mysterious and script fog, bring to eyes an imposing scenery.
During harvesting season, ready crops transitioned to yellow, while new crops still remain in their green color. The scenery is a big attraction to photographer and trekkers. Tu Le’s the most beautiful seasons are rice transplanted season on May to Jun and the harvesting season in September to early October every year
