Ha Giang provincial People’s Committee reported to organize a ceremony on September 16th 2012 to receive the decision of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on recognizing Hoang Su Phi terraced fields as national heritage.
That ceremony will be broadcast live on VTV channel of the Vietnam Television. An exhibition on economic and cultural products in the district will be held on this occasion. The aim of the event is to preserve the fields and promote their tourism potential.
Situated on six communes, Hoang Su Phi terraced field was established hundreds of year ago by labour force of the community and people of La Chi, Dao and Nung ethnic minority groups. The fields were among the sites recently recongnised by the MoCST as significant parts of the nation’s heritage, including three other landscapes: the Trang An caves in Ninh Binh province, the Pusamcap cave system in Lai Chau province, and the Chua Tien caves in Hoa Binh province.
