The Kinh guests getting acquainted with the Mong ethnic minority children

Located adjacent to Son La and Yen Bai provinces, Hang Dong commune has the topography of a hollow, leaning against Ta Xua Nature Reserve. Located at an altitude of 2000m above sea level, the climate of Hang Dong commune and Lang Sang village is cool all year, with majestic mountains and floating white clouds.

The center of Hang Dong commune is 30km from Bac Yen district. Hang Dong commune currently consists of four villages: Hang Dong A, B, C and Lang Sang, the population mainly consists of the Hmong ethnic minority.

From the centre of Hang Dong commune, it is necessary to travel 7km by motorbike to reach the forest’s edge, and it is necessary to walk 23km through the forest to reach Lang Sang.

The muddy road due to the high humidity, covered by an old forest canopy, is the most extreme challenge for those who want to approach Sang Village, the terminal land of Son La province.

The moments of rest between the natural scenery, one side of the old forest, the other side are the clouds floating over the terraced fields of ethnic minorities.

The Lang Sang Primary School is roofed by wood. Most pupils are the children of the Hmong ethnic minority, with a tradition of building houses on the highest mountains.

During the day, all adults go to work in the fields or go down to the centre of commune, only children and the elderly remain in the village to welcome the guests.
