Daily life on the terraced mountain of Khau Pha

Farmers in Yen Bai Province are fighting against nature to raise their crops on the terraces of Khau Pha Mountain Pass, where the farming has always been difficult with altitudes of 1,200-1,500 metres.

When the harvest season ends for the farmers in the delta, it is just starting for H'Mong farmers in the mountainous areas. They toil all day long on the picturesque paddies.
