SON LA – The plum garden in Na Ka valley or the apricot garden in km82 is wearing pure white flowers in
TTO – As white as the first snowflakes of the season, the apricot forest valley in Moc Chau, Son La is becoming a place that many young people enjoy.
Located along National Highway 43 in the direction of Hanoi to Son La ( about 7km from Moc Chau town ), the valley of the apricot forest is the most beautiful place to attract tourists when coming to Moc Chau at this time.
20ha wide, the apricot forest is planted in the valley 60m lower than the highway surface, forming a very beautiful white strip. Apricot flowers bloom in clusters, white quite similar to plum flowers. From a distance, the whole valley looks like it is covered with a layer of snow.
Apricot flowers in Moc Chau usually bloom from January and last for about 3 weeks. This year, due to the influence of the epidemic, fewer visitors come to the valley of the apricot forest.
Thanks to that, anyone who comes here at this time can freely take virtual photos without fear of crowding.

Having a hobby of wandering and exploring Moc Chau, 9X guy Vu Trung Kien shared: “Compared to last year, this year apricot flowers bloom bigger and more beautiful, now some trees have also started to bear fruit. Few visitors. Traveling here, I feel very comfortable and relaxed.
The best time to photograph flowers is from 15:00 to 17:30, because at this time the sun is not too harsh, the water will also be more beautiful. The valley of the apricot forest is one of the places you should visit when you come to Moc Chau on this occasion.
