Moc Chau plateau, located about 200 km west of Hanoi is one of Vietnam’s most attractive tourist destinations. The plateau is usually cool in the summer with an average temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and dry in the winter. It is considered as the Da Lat of the North and very attractive to those who want enjoying the cool and natural fresh air. The road from Hanoi to Moc Chau with its magnificent landscapes and down to earth hospitable people is truly an inspiration that will warm your heart. From Hanoi, travel southwest to Hoa Binh and then take National Road 6 west to Moc Chau. Before reaching Long Luong, which the government has plans to turn into a major tourist destination, is at the center of Moc Chau District, where the road runs through vast forests of tea plants at the foot of the mountains, travellers began to see vegetables and fruit orchards spliced between crop fields and glimmering in the spring sunshine. Every once in a while large mountains along the road would be separated by fields of flowers. Minority groups greet visitors by staging a score of their traditional welcome dances. Among the popular are the xoe dance of the Thai people and khen dance of the Mong group. The Son Moc Huong Cave adds yet another attraction to Moc Chau Son La. Visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the plateau when standing at the entrance of the cave located in the center of Moc Chau District. Stalactite structures decorate the cave inside, giving visitors a feeling of relaxation, and that they are lost in a fairy world. Moc Chau is also known for its tasty buffalo jerk, fried fish and boiled bamboo shoots which are not bitter like bamboo elsewhere. One more thing visitors should not miss is to drink fresh hot milk.
