September – October, the rice terraces ripening iridescent gold in Yen Bai and Cao Bang beautifully like highland paintings clinging to tourists.
The rice season is ripe by The Giong Giong waterfall in Dam Thuy commune, about 20 km from the center of Ching Khanh district. October is also an ideal time to explore The Gioc Waterfall.
Photographer Pham Chi Cong, who lives and works in Hanoi, said that every time he came to ripen rice season, he hunted and was fascinated by the golden season painting on each upland road. This series he took in 2019 – 2020 in Cao Bang and Yen Bai.
