Life in the home of oldest tea trees in the world

VietNamNet Bridge – Around 200km from Hanoi, Suoi Giang commune in the Van Chan district, the northern mountain province of Yen Bai, is 1,371m above sea level. The commune is located on the mighty Fansipan Mountain. This is the home of the oldest tea trees in the world.

The weather in Suoi Giang is cool all the year round, like Vietnam’s resort centers as Sapa (Lao Cai province) and Da Lat (Lam Dong province).

From the peak of Suoi Giang, visitors can admire the vast Muong Lo field, the second largest granary in Vietnam’s northwestern region.

They can also climb up ancient tee trees of 300 years old to pick tea buds with hospitable H’Mong natives, and walk in the fokienia forest or have a bath at Tap Lang waterfall.

Yen Bai province is implementing a plan to turn Suoi Giang into a tourist site, with attractive tourism products.
