Discover the hidden splendour of the Long Coc tea valley

Discover the hidden splendour of the Long Coc tea valley

WEDNESDAY, November 30, 2022

The Long Coc tea valley is in Phu Tho Province's Tan Son District, roughly 125 kilometres from Hanoi. One of the most beautiful tea plantations in Vietnam, Long Coc is made up of hundreds of hills facing each other and is popular with tourists all year.

Between March and December, a green carpet of new tea plants grows here, evoking a sight full of vigour.

After the tea plants are harvested in December, the landscape of the tea hills will take on a kaleidoscope of colours, curves, and angles.

Those who enjoy snapping photos are drawn to the area because of the breathtaking dawn.

The hours between 4 and 5 in the morning, when the mist is still there, but the sun's rays are just beginning to illuminate the scene, are often regarded as the best time to see the hills by many photographers.

Visitors to Long Coc may also taste numerous appealing native delicacies and teas and immerse themselves in the cultural space of the Muong ethnic community.

Traditional Midland tea, Bat Tien tea, and Shan Tuyet tea are some of the region's well-known beverages.

If you're a nature lover who doesn't want to spend too much time travelling but wants to get away from the city, a visit to Phu Tho's Long Coc valley is a wonderful option for the weekend.
