Hi dear Hivers in Pinmapple community, today I would like to take you to another beautiful place, which is Pa Pach village in Moc Chau district, Son La province, Vietnam. As you may know, Moc Chau is a mountainous and remote district. And most of the population in Moc Chau are Mong and Thai ethnic minority people. And Pa Phach village is home to Mong people.
Pa Phach village is about 9km from the center of Moc Chau district. With mainly mountainous terrain, villages in Moc Chau are often located in isolated areas such as valleys and mountain foothills, and Pa Phach village is not an exception. Pa Phach village is nestled between high mountain ranges. There is only one road to get to the village, and it's truly beautiful, I promise, then I'm sure you'll never get bored of driving on that road.
People here have a simple and peaceful life. They make a living mainly by growing crops and raising livestock. Actually, Moc Chau has a severe weather and poor soil condition. It's really cold here in winter, the winter normally lass for 3 months, and during that period of time, sometimes the temperature drops to 5 celcius degree. The terrain in Moc Chau is mostly rocky, and the layer of soil is quite thin. Then the local people has a lot of difficulties to do agriculture here. Despite of that, those difficulties make the beauty of people here. They are gentle, hard-working and simple people.
Here, people live in small wooden or soil houses. In general, people use environmentally friendly materials to build their house. It's partly their custom, and the other reason is that they live in a remote area, then it's hard to transport modern materials to the village. The houses are quite small because the winter here are very cold, and the small one can keep them warmer. Besides, the villagers live harmony with nature around. We can easily found many farms, gardens and even wild flower steppe and meadow here.
I stopped by a primary school in the village. The school is just a small one with just several classrooms, which is located at the bottom of a mountain. And when I was there, it's their break time. The children were playing in the playground. And when they noticed my presence. They approached me curiously. It seems to be that there is not many strange people visiting the village. And when I started my drone, they were so excited. They just ran follow the drone, and they even stood under the drone to feel the flow of air from it. I'm happy that the drone brought some joy to the children.
Thank you very much for taking time to read my post. I hope you had a good time with me during the trip to explore Pa Phach village today. And wish you a nice day.
