Spectacular bamboo forest in Yen Bai

So far, not many local travelers have known about this destination in the mountainous province of Yen Bai. It has not only beautiful terraced rice fields but also a spectacular bamboo forest that was planted 60 years ago. The bamboo forest in Na Hang Tua Chu Village, Pung Luong Commune, Mu Cang Chai District, depicts scenes as idyllic as those in martial art movies.

Hundreds of thousands of bamboo trunks on one hectare offer a fantastic setting for enjoying fresh air and taking nice photos. The deeper tourists go into the forest, the taller bamboo trees they can find.
