Rice harvest, a momentary break

Newer Older

Pan (12) and her Dad Chao taking a momentary break, Chao eating fresh rice and Pan nibbling on a fresh stem. They started at 7:00 am and start going home, a 1 km up the steep mountain at 5:30 pm. It’s the first year Pan is cutting the rice with her parents, a coming of age event and she wore her best clothing for the event.

In the Sapa region there are about 35,000 Black Hmong residing in the surrounding 17 villages and they account for about 50% of the area population. Most reside at an altitude of 1,600 – 1,700 meters above sea level in this stunningly beautiful region they call “the city above the clouds”. The Hmong started migrating to Vietnam from China in the last 300 years.
