NDO – Yen Bai provincial authorities kicked off a tourism promotion programme on May 30 with the launch of a paragliding festival in Cao Pha commune, Mu Cang Chai district.

Themed ‘Flying in water-pouring season, the paragliding festival will serve visitors every weekend from May 30 to July 15 and only welcomes groups of more than 20 people who have registered beforehand during the week.

Paragliding lovers will have the opportunity to fly over over the terraced rice fields in Mu Cang Chai district during water pouring season, when farmers make the water run into their fields to start a new rice crop.

The festival has been held since 2017 and it has drawn much interest from visitors.

The tourism promotion programme is being held in response of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s campaign on encouraging Vietnamese people to travel domestically.

It will offer visitors various activities to explore the indigenous culture and agricultural products of the Thai and H’mong ethnic groups in the locality.

Art performances, community-based tours, and food sampling events will also be held in Nghia Lo town on the occasion.
