The beauty of terraced rice fields in the mountainous district of Tu Mo Rong
Hi dear Hivers in Photofeed community, today I would like to share with you some photos of terraced rice fields that I took during my business trip to the mountainous district, Tu Mo Rong. As a remote mountainous district of Kon Tum province, and the population is mainly ethnic minorities such as Xo Dang and Mo Nam, in general, the local people have a very poor and difficult life. In return, the natural beauty here is majestic, especially the terraced fields.
The terraces are a captivating sight that showcases remarkable craftsmanship and harmony between man and nature. These meticulously maintained landscapes are a source of nourishment and cultural heritage for generations, a testament to the incredible ability and resourcefulness of the hardworking farmer. Looking at the pictures below, it seems that these terraces are created from a vertical mountainside.
The terraced fields are proof of the extraordinary of the people of this remote and mountainous land. The steep and hilly landscape poses a great challenge for humans. In order to survive, the ethinic minorities here had no choice but to carve into the mountainside to create plots of fields that crisscrossed the mountainsides. They have skillfully and meticulously transformed the rough and difficult-to-reach terrain into fertile and productive farmland. These terraces control the flow of water, prevent soil erosion and provide optimal conditions for rice cultivation.
To have these majestic terraced rice fields, creating and maintaining them requires farmers' extensive knowledge, craftsmanship and community cooperation. Traditionally, the children here will follow their parents to work on the terraced fields from a very early age. And they will be taught by their parents how to farm on those tough terrain. It is through that tradition, the preservation and continuity of this ancient agricultural practice is ensured. The ethnic minorities even build their on top of the mountains.
If you have a chance to delve into areas like these, you will understand that the rice terraces not only sustain the community by providing an important source of food, but also exhibit deep spiritual and cultural significance. These often include rituals, folklore, and a deep human connection to the land. These rice terraces reflect the intimate relationship between man and nature, demonstrating the harmonious coexistence and respect of the ethinic minorities here for the earth's resources.
Thanks to the hard work and meticulousness of ethnic minority communities in Tu Mo Rong land, I had the opportunity to take these photos. I hope you like them too. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and have a nice day.
