Moc Chau Scenery

A series of activities, including folk games, dances and traditional performances of local people in Moc Chau district, is scheduled to be held during the festival.

The festival will offer visitors a chance to discover the culture, cuisine, customs, handicraft and agricultural products of ethnic minority groups in the province through cultural camps.

On the occasion, some tourism destinations, such as Doi cave, Dai Yem waterfall, Ang mountain village’s forest and Mooc Ly military post, built by the French, are also ready to welcome festival visitors.

The event aims to promote tourism and the beautiful landscape, as well as the cultural identity, of Son La province and the northwest region.

Located in the valley of the Da and Ma rivers, about 300km north-west of Ha Noi, the northeastern province has a picturesque landscape created by mountain ranges, primeval forests and a valley.

The Moc Chau Plateau in Son La is famous for its cool climate, as well as its vast tea and flower farms. There are also 50,000 cattle in the area.

Eco-tourism and farm tourism seem to be ideal models for the plateau, as the number of visitors increases every year.

Rich culture created by different ethnic groups, including Thai, Muong, Mong, Dao, Kho Mu, Tay and La Ha, also contributes to cultural and community tourism in Son La.
