Moc Chau, Sơn La - From now until the end of October, tourists can visit Moc Chau to witness and photograph the out-of-season cherry blossoms in the Nà Ka cherry valley.
Moc Chau, located approximately 180 km from Hanoi, boasts around 1,300 hectares of cherry orchards. Normally, cherry blossoms bloom from late January to mid-February each year, attracting tourists from all over who come to admire the scenery, take photos, and camp, according to the electronic information portal of Moc Chau district.
However, this year, starting from mid-October, the cherry trees in the Nà Ka cherry valley in Moc Chau started to bloom out of season. Nà Ka cherry valley is one of the two largest cherry-growing areas in the district, along with Mu Náu cherry valley.
In recent years, cherry blossoms have frequently bloomed out of season due to climate changes and some measures taken by locals to induce early flowering. This has attracted tourists for photography and sightseeing, as stated by Tráng A Đua, the owner of a cherry orchard in the Nà Ka valley. The off-season cherry blossom season is expected to last until the end of October.
While the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the volume of flowers is substantial, although individual blossoms may not be as large or thick as those in the regular spring season.
On October 20, Vũ Quang Kiên, a 28-year-old local from Moc Chau, purchased tickets to enter the cherry orchard for 30,000 VND per person. He brought along tables, chairs, and tarpaulins to set up a camp with friends in the orchard to enjoy the off-season cherry blossoms.
The cherry blossoms began to bloom around October 16, but there weren't many tourists arriving for photography as during the regular season. "Thanks to this, we can enjoy the tranquility and have more relaxation time amidst the pure white of the off-season cherry orchard," he said.
On October 18, Nguyễn Ngọc Ánh, a 22-year-old from Vĩnh Phúc, also took the opportunity to visit the valley for photography during a short work period at a homestay in Moc Chau.
This was Ánh's first time admiring the beauty of the pristine white cherry blossoms. The number of flowers was not dense, and many buds remained on the branches. "Perhaps in the next one or two weeks, the cherry blossoms will bloom more and become even more beautiful," she said.
The best time of day to visit the Nà Ka cherry valley is in the morning, from 8 am to 10 am. Arriving too early may result in thick morning fog obscuring the view, while the midday and afternoon sun can be too harsh. Late afternoon sunsets are brief, making it challenging to capture beautiful moments.
Nà Ka cherry valley is located about 16 km from the town of Moc Chau and is easily accessible thanks to improved roads. However, the road is winding and narrow, so travelers are advised to use motorcycles and avoid rainy days when the road may be slippery.
The weather in Moc Chau has cooled down, with morning and nighttime temperatures dropping to around 15-16 degrees Celsius. Visitors should bring warm clothing. According to Kiên, wearing light-colored clothing will make tourists stand out in the midst of the white cherry orchard when taking photos.
