Huong Khe district is considered as the rubber-growing capital of Ha Tinh province with more than 6,400 hectares. Rubber here grows thick and large. When the season changes, the leaves turn yellow and red.

The rubber tree is native to the Amazon forest, in South America. In the Maina dialect, “ouchouk” is the name for the rubber tree, which also means tears of the tree. Following in the footsteps of the French, rubber trees came to Vietnam in the late 19th century and quickly became the main industrial tree.

Because of the large area, the green leaves on the branches do not immediately turn yellow, but slowly turn green, then yellow, and finally turn red and fall off. When visitors see local people walking under the red rubber forest canopy, they often feel amused. The scene is dreamy and fanciful.
