Introduction to Lung Vai Village
Lung Vai is the highest village compared to other villages and residential groups in Ha Giang city. Lung Vai has 22 hectares of terraced fields winding from one mountainside to another. In addition to the function of helping people in the village ensure food security, in the middle of May and October every year, the beautiful scenery of terraced fields in the village's "water season" and "ripe rice season" has gradually become more beautiful that attracts tourists to cross high passes and deep streams to the village to admire.
Coming here, you will see the gray houses of the people lying among the green gardens and rice fields. Depending on the season of the year, the picture around the house will be the green of the young seedling, the yellow of the ripe rice, or the colorful umbrellas that sparkle in the sun. In particular, among the rice fields and gardens here, there are many black rocks that make a special mark for Lung Vai Hamlet.
Although it is mid-summer, but only passing Lung Vai village, all scenes have become vivid and bring the typical climate of the high mountains with fog and wind covering the tops of the mountains surrounding the village hidden under the palm trees and primeval forest. Autumn, when the rice begins to turn yellow, is also the time when people start busy with the harvest. The Dao girls are radiant, attractive in traditional clothes, and smiling brightly when adding another bumper season. The gentle, subtle aroma of ripe rice spreads throughout the space along with the fresh and cool forest scent that blends with the mountains and forests, making people's hearts more captivated.
The rain poured down, and the people in the highland villages went to the fields all day, from the fog, they were bustling with people's voices, rushing to plant warm green sprouts in each field. If you compare the terraced fields to multi-colored wonders, then the mountain farmers are the artists when their labor creates a harmonious beauty between the sky, the clouds, and the mountains.
Along with the landscape beauty of the terraced fields, coming to the highland village in the early spring days, besides the pure white of the plum blossom, the pink color of the peach blossom, it also stands out with the brilliant yellow of the mustard flower.
Especially, it is impossible not to mention the beauty of the traditional houses of the people here. The Dao people live in three highland villages of Phuong Do commune, living in stilt houses leaning against the Tay Con Linh mountain range for more than 300 years. The traditional houses of the people here are mainly houses on stilts with palm roofs. There are houses on stilts with thick palm roofs covered with mossy layers of moss formed over time, under the influence of fog all year round. The older the house, the thicker the moss cover, and the greener and more beautiful it is.
