The event, the sixth of its kind, will feature a cultural festival of Mong ethnic people residing in the province and off-road races in Vinh Quang township, along with a paragliding contest over the fields.

It will also re-enact a market in the mountainous regions and introduce products and socio-economic achievements of the local people at an exhibition.

The week, aiming to develop and promote the values of the national heritage site of the terraced paddy fields, is viewed as a typical cultural event of Ha Giang and a draw for tourists.

Local authorities will keep a close watch on COVID-19 developments to decide on a suitable schedule and organisation of the event in a bid to ensure safety for participants.

Spanning across six communes of Hoang Su Phi, the terraced fields were recognised as a national heritage site in September 2012.

The harvest season in the district falls in September and October, creating a breathtaking scene that attracts tourists to Ha Giang province every autumn.
