    Entertainment in U Village 

    Arriving in Ú Phu Tho village, it is easy to see that the entrance to the village is a dirt road with the style of the old Northern village road. Unspoiled landscape, familiar with the appearance of roofs made from palm trees. Interwoven with that is a green color of rice fields spread evenly across the Bua river.

    And it is impossible not to mention the rows of old trees that shade the people here on the green grass. The image of the U village appears peaceful and quiet when there are buffaloes leisurely grazing on young grass.

    Most of the people in U village are Muong ethnic people living here and their main occupation is growing wet rice. Therefore, irrigation for agricultural cultivation is focused on by the people here. Bua river also contributes to adorning U village more peacefully and green. And to cross the Bua River, the Muong people used wooden trees to make rafts. Therefore, you will not be too surprised when you see Muong girls and boys cutting trees in the forest and then huddling together to release them on the river. This is the means to help them cross the Bua River.

    Going upstream of the U dam, you will see a blue lake - this is the result of blocking the river and taking water from the Muong ethnic people. Bua river flows near U dam with its winding shape and the appearance of many large and small rocks that look like the foot of a waterfall. The two sides of the river are surrounded by primitive old groves with rich vegetation creating a poetic, majestic, and heart-stopping scenery. On hot, sweltering summer days to cleanse the soul and find coolness, the ideal rendezvous of the Muong in the U village is to the U dam, a cool blue lake. Here, you will feel more clearly the hanging beauty of the village and relax by the Bua river.
