Take a trip to Mu Cang Chai this season and tourists will fall in love with not only yellow terraced paddy fields but also an endless green bamboo forest.

The breathtaking bamboo forest, called 'Na Hang Tua Chu,' is located in Pung Luong Commune, around 20 kilometers from the mountainous township of Mu Cang Chai, Yen Bai Province.

The spectacular beauty of the forest is comparable to fantastic scenes from a martial arts movie.

Having existed for more than 60 years, it is an ideal destination for travelers to come to contemplate the immense greenery and enjoy mountainous fresh air.

Since the bamboo forest was opened to tourists in July, it has quickly become a new check-in spot for youngsters from around Vietnam.

Because of narrow paths leading to the forest, tourists may have to pay for motorbike taxis, or ‘xe om' in Vietnamese, to reach the destination.

Otherwise, adventurous travelers can ride a motorbike to conquer the bumpy roads to the forest.

The farther tourists go into the forest, the taller bamboo trees they can find.

Hundreds of thousands of straight bamboo trees spread over an area of about one hectare, creating a wonderful space for resting, taking stunning photos, and breathing fresh air.
