10+ photos depict the enchantment of the Pho Bang valleys in Vietnam’s Ha Giang Rock Plateau.
Pho Bang, a bustling border town 20 kilometers from Dong Van suburban district and 117 kilometers from Ha Giang township, appeared to have been forgotten in a few decades.
To get to Pho Bang old town, drive about 5 kilometers from the junction to Sung La, through a small pass, and then into this peaceful town.
Pho Bang greets you with beautiful gardens of fragrant roses against a backdrop of mountain greenery.
The majority of the residents are H’Mong and Chinese. Pho Bang is a small town with only a dozen houses scattered along the main road and a few small branches. As a result, you’ll picture this tranquil land as a beautiful young sleeping woman surrounded by wild mountains.
Some peach flowers bloom a little later than others.
Alternatively, you may be captivated by the sight of an infinite number of white plum flowers blooming beneath the rustic roofs.
Locals begin to burn dry grass in rice terraces with unique terrain in the spring. The smoke enhances the land’s magical and poetic qualities.
Not only are the clay-made houses over 100 years old, with old wooden doors and old parallel sentences in Chinese scripts, the most impressive things here. Quiet small valleys will lull you to sleep with their incredibly dreamy atmosphere.
Several ancient houses with a slow lifestyle stand deep in the valleys.
The houses are hidden beneath the shadows of thousands of pine trees, creating a serene scene that appears to have stood the test of time.
Alternatively, the houses provide shots of the picturesque scene by looming behind glorious yellow borecole fields.
The life of locals in this barren land, like other lands of the Dong Van rock plateau, is quite poor, so people regard the soil as their gold of life.
The village mingles with the soul of nature in this border town; it’s a slow, smooth, and peaceful small world.
