This is the most beautiful season of Bat Xat, a district of the orthwestern mountainous province of Lao Cai, right on the foot of Fansipan Mountain. The stunning beauty of terraced ripening paddy fields is a unique tourism product of the locality. Rice in nany rice fields is fully ripe. There, at night, the temperature is low and dew is everywhere on plants. However, at 6 a.m., golden rays of sunlight cover the terraced fields.

Terraced fields are typical in Bat Xat and associated with the history of local ethnic minorities. They are the results of their working process and prove the creativity of the locals when bringing wet rice crops to high hills. The ethnic groups who live in this region have been relying on agriculture for centuries and the techniques they have used, and the terrain that provide the fields are much the same as they have always been.
