Older children and men gather to drink while women dance the traditional dances of their ethnic groups.
Filling in the cold atmosphere, the fields of Chinese cabbage and buckwheat flowers run along the hillsides, stretching into the distance in the middle of thousands of blooming plum trees which dot the entire valley. Combined with the colorful traditional clothes of the H’mong people it creates a special place that can be found nowhere else.
