Rice terraces in Sapa, Vietnam

Terraced rice fields are located in the northern mountainous provinces. Due to the steep feature, fertile soil was created by weathered granite rock and mountain cliffs often stock water. Local ethnic minority people can grow rice and establish terraced rice fields, one after another, from the foot to nearly top of mountains. Generations to generations of these people have made terraced rice fields as we see today.
