NDO – The border commune of Y Ty, in the west of Bat Xat district and north of Sapa town in the northern mountainous province of Lao Cai, is well-known as an ideal place to enjoy the dazzling beauty of terraced paddy fields and clouds as it is located on a rocky mountain with an altitude of more than 2,000m, leaning against Nhiu Co San mountain.

In late August and early September, rice fields in Y Ty commune turn bright yellow. This is the best time for visitors to admire the stunning beauty of rice.

In the northwestern region, Y Ty is one of the localities where rice ripens earliest. In mid-August, the locals begin to harvest rice.

On the path from Sapa to Y Ty, tourists can stop to admire the yellow rice fields in Ta Giang Phin valley in Den Sang commune.
