    Entertainment in Luoc Village 

    The most unique in both Ban Luoc and San Sa Ho is definitely the terraced fields in the ripe rice season. At this time, the whole valley sky is dyed a golden color of ripe rice. You should check the review first to guess the time to come here when the rice is ripe and the people have not yet harvested it. 

    Standing from above, you will see a vivid picture of nature with terraced fields peeking out from behind the pale clouds, and looming wooden roofs. As expected, it is one of the national heritages of terraced fields in Hoang Su Phi. More especially, on the way to Ban Luoc, you will pass by the huts built by the people, and you can see the whole beautiful terraced space. You can ask permission to take pictures completely free of charge.

    The time when Ban Luoc - San Sa Ho is most poetic and radiant is probably when the rice is ripe. At this time, the whole village was filled with yellow color, even more, colorful under the highland sunshine. The whole valley becomes sparkling with the color of abundance, the color of the local people's harvest.

    You should come here around early to mid-September to see the whole ripe golden rice field that has not been harvested. If it is too late, the people will have finished harvesting all the rice, and the whole field will have only the dark gray color of mud.

    In addition, you also avoid going in the rainy season months. At this time, not only the road is slippery and difficult to go, but the risk of rock slide is also very large, and extremely dangerous to travel on the pass.
