Nam Cang rice terraced fields in Nam Cang commune is a small commune about 30km from the center of Sapa town, which owns many terraced fields, streams, waterfalls, and dense forests with rich vegetation. Right at Hoang Lien Son National Park.
According to the local language, Nam Cang means upstream water. This place is also the origin of three large streams, Nam Cang, Nam Pa, and Nam Thang, providing clean water for local people and watering the lush fields all year round.
The majestic nature is one of the attractions for tourists to Nam Cang. On the trekking route to explore the mountains and forests, following a route along the big stream, visitors have the opportunity to challenge themselves with the dangerous suspension bridge.
Trekkers must be careful with each step when underneath the suspension bridge is a large, fast-flowing stream. But the obstacles on the trekking road do not discourage visitors because the lush green mountains always cover.
Visitors here should spend a day trekking, exploring large streams, enjoying the fresh, green air inside the dense forests, and admiring the majestic northwestern mountain and forest scenery.
Prepare yourself for sturdy shoes, cool outfits, and insect repellent to spend a day inside Hoang Lien Son National Park. Nam Cang is a valley, also the last part of the southeastern part of Sa Pa district, so the life here is somewhat closed and peaceful.
Not as famous as the early tourist communes and near the center of Sa Pa such as Lao Chai, Ta Van, Ta Phin, so Nam Cang is still a new name to tourists.
However, on the local tourist map, Nam Cang is starting to impress and hold tourists thanks to the beautiful nature and unique identities of the two Mong and Dao ethnic groups.
Referring to Sa Pa terraced fields, many people immediately think of Muong Hoa or Ta Phin valley. However, Sa Pa still has many beautiful terraced fields located in the unknown communes, including the Nam Cang area.
Nam Cang rice terraced fields are not as vast as in Ta Van, Lao Chai, but are narrow valleys mixed with cat-ear rocks but still create a peaceful and poetic picture.
