Picturesque rice terraces in northern highlands

May marks the start of the ploughing season in Vietnam’s northern mountainous provinces, creating vistas rivaling landscape paintings with their beauty.

The rice terraces of Lao Cai province’s Y Ty commune in Bat Xat district resemble stairs to a blue heaven.

Terraces combine with cloud-shrouded mountain peaks for views as stunning as the famous fields in Sa Pa (Lao Cai), Hoang Su Phi (Ha Giang), and Mu Cang Chai (Yen Bai).

Tourists and photographers cannot resist the chance to witness this seasonal beauty.
