The northern province of Lang Son will hold the Mau Son Summer Tourism Festival at the eponymous tourism site in Cao Loc and Loc Binh districts on May 17.

The festival will feature art performances and showcase traditional dishes, special wines, and traditional costumes of ethnic minorities living on Mau Son Mountain. There will also be a bicycle race, a climb up Phat Chi Mountain, and a youth camp.

Located some 30km northeast of Lang Son city, Mau Son has lovely, pristine landscapes, pure air, and cool weather year round. The mountain, which sometimes gets snow in winter, also has many beautiful streams and waterfalls.

Mau Son has many specialties like peach, Tuyet Son tea, wine, and rare cocks with six spurs. It is home to the Tay, Dao, and Nung ethnic minorities.-VNA
