Strange colors of terraced fields in the northern mountains of Vietnam

Travellers coming to Sapa will never forget the image of magnificent terraced rice paddies on this land, which were voted as one of seven most beautiful and impressive terraced rice fields of Asia and the world by readers of American magazine named Travel and Leisure.

In September and October when autumn ends, tourists can feel prosperity all over the area as rice in all terraced fields is ripe, giving the gold colour. During the time, the terraced rice fields look like golden silk scarves flying over in the wind above green mountain slopes, making the mountainous landscape astonishingly beautiful.

As usual in April and May when the local people water their fields at full to prepare for a new crop, the surface of terraced fields shines like a mirror reflecting the contrast of the reddish brown of soil, the deep blue of the sky high above and the green of surrounding forests. Embankments surrounding these terraces look like threads softly lined by the painter.

The terraced fields in sapa change color year-round, which is truly a miracle of nature. These terraced fields are not  only a fantastic natural picture but also an epic wonder of creative labour of the highlanders in the course of several centuries of transforming nature to serve their lives.
