La Hu Ethnic People
The most interesting feature of this festival is that during 3 days, La Hu people will not pick up vegetables, chop down trees, or cut the grasses. They believe by doing so, the plants will be green and strong the whole year round. Instead of going to the fields, people enjoy a traditional dance called MuaXoe and beat their drums to add to the cheerful atmosphere for the village.
The 2nd month of a lunar year is always the time when the weather smiles at people in Dien Bien.
