An eco-tour to Ang Hamlet in Dong Sang commune, Moc Chau district in the northern mountainous province of Son La will enable tourists to explore stunning features of the Mother Nature and the Thai ethnic people’s unique culture.

One of the must-see destinations of the eco-tour is a pine forest near a poetic lake that forms a peaceful scene for Ang hamlet. Here, the lake is considered a mirror of the weather during the four seasons.

In the early morning, the lake wears a light mist layer while it looks brilliant with sunlight at noon. At sunset, the mist comes back and covers the lake, bringing the cold air of winter.

However, the lake is most beautiful on moonlit nights with the shade of pine trees reflected on the water, the whispering sounds of pine trees and sweet melodies from bamboo flutes performed by ethnic young men to call their girlfriends.

Visiting the hamlet, tourists learn about many unique customs, habits, dances, ancient folk songs, rites and festivals, such as “New Rice” and “Het Cha” (a festival for the solidarity of the ethnic community before spring comes) of the Thai ethnic people which have been well preserved over the years.

Furthermore, they can gain interesting experiences when living with the locals, enjoying their delicious dishes and drinking Can wine.

The development of the eco-tour to Ang hamlet has helped improve the living standards of the locals and preserved the traditional features of the Thai ethnic group.-VNA
