Introduction to Cu Vai Village
Lying on the middle of the slope, Cu Vai village, Xa Ho commune, Tram Tau district, Yen Bai province appears as a fairyland in the mountains of the Northwest. Cu Vai village has a separate terrain on the top of a distant mountain, covered by clouds all year round. In Thai, the name Cu Vai means the band of clouds stretching across the sky.
It's true that when you come here, you can see that Cu Vai village is lying peacefully and dreamily on the top of the mountain with epic legends. There are 46 households living in the village, of which more than 80% are H'Mong people. The road to the village is very dangerous, it is all winding and hilly roads, especially in the rainy season, making the road even more difficult to travel. Cu Vai village is located at an altitude of over 1,000 meters above sea level, surrounded by mountains and white clouds.
Therefore, the daily life and culture of the people here are also separate from the noisy society outside. Thanks to that, visitors can find moments of peace for the soul. Lying entirely on a high mountain that is flattened, the village has about a few dozen households, mainly Hmong people. The arrangement of the houses in the village plus the isolation of the village bring many interesting associations when viewed from above. The roofs are built close together and are divided into two rows by a straight path in the middle. People liken Cu Vai village to a lute with the houses as the keys, others think it looks like a makeshift airport with the runway as the main road and the houses as the navigator.
The Mong ethnic people here still keep their traditional way of life, customs and habits. Walking on the small village road, you will encounter children playing, radiant faces, innocent eyes, carefree and especially very friendly even to strangers to visit.
