According to Giang A Vu, Deputy Secretary of the district’s Party Committee and Chairman of the district’s People’s Council, in the short term, the helicopter tour will open for tourists to explore Mu Cang Chai in the flooding and ripe rice seasons.

In addition, passengers have a panoramic view from any position in the cabin.
