During the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday in mid-Feb, Chieu Xuan with family and friends traveled to Y Ty Commune, Bat Xat District on a five-day-four-night trip.

Y Ty is famed among Vietnamese trekkers for its beauty at cloud level.

Xuan had to reach the Ngai Thau Thuong peak before the sun set to capture this moment.

"It was like a road to heaven. The sky and earth were so close to my eyes, I had to stop and stare for a while before taking a photo," she said.

Adverse to the cold, Xuan suggested travelers wear white, red, or blue puffer jackets when taking photos to stand out against the wild backdrop. She also recommended using sneakers for easier mobility, instead of warm, but cumbersome boots.
