Y Linh Ho, a breathtaking panoramic view over the terraced rice fields of the black Hmongs.

My suggestion:
Take a local guide with you on the trail, and the guide will explain all the traditions of this ethnic group.
My review

At the start of a hike through the rice fields, the view is incredible. The terraced rice fields are a sparkling emerald green colour. In the distance, you can even see labourers hard at work. This region will also appeal to sporty travellers.

The trail is gentle and you as the hot sun beats down, you can contemplate the soothing landscape. You pass in front of traditional dwellings and we encountered children who came up to us to say hello. Our hearts sank when two of them asked us to buy bracelets as we walked.

We take the path meant for the buffalo, which made us all break down in laughter. The sight of the conical hats in the rice fields is striking. Their broad, welcoming smiles reinforce the feeling that all is well with the world.
