Rice Harvest

As it turned out, we were visiting at the time of the rice harvest. Depending on the region and altitude and rainfall, there can be one, two or three harvests each year. Especially beautiful were the terraced rice paddies in the mountains around Sapa. We saw no mechanical harvesting – all done by hand, and the ploughing done mostly by water buffalo.
