LẠNG SƠN — Mẫu Sơn Summer Tourism Festival was organised by the Lạng Sơn Province Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism earlier this month with thousands of people and tourists attending.
The visitors took part in a food festival with traditional Dao dishes, an art exhibition held in old French villas and several other cultural and sporting activities such as lion dancing, folk singing, a cycle race and mountain climbing, Bé Thị Thu Hiền, deputy director of the department, said.
Located some 30 km north-east of Lạng Sơn city, Mẫu Sơn is home to the Tày, Dao and Nùng ethnic minorities. The mountain boasts a pristine landscape, clean air and cool weather all year round.
Tourists often flock here to enjoy its beautiful streams and waterfalls as well as occasionally experience snow in winter.
The area is well-known for its specialties like peaches, Tuyết Sơn tea, wine and rare cockerels with six claws. — VNS
