Vietnam terraced rice fields

Rice terraces are slopes claimed from nature for cultivation in hilly or mountainous areas. Due to the steep feature, fertile soil thanks to it was created by weathered granite rock and mountain cliffs often stock water, local ethnic minority people can grow rice and establish terraced rice fields, one after another, from the foot to nearly top of mountains.

Terraced rice paddies ring the Vietnamese countryside in bright green. The crop, a staple of Southeast Asia, has been grown in Vietnam for thousands of years. The country is now the second largest exporter of rice, after Thailand.
