Terrace paddies in North Vietnam.
Terraced rice paddies in Tu Le Valley at the beginning of new season. The Hmong people are crossing the fields on their way home at the end of the working day. The Hmong ethnic minority is the main local population in the area. Generations and generations of these people have made terraced fields as they do today.
