Things to know about Ha Giang's Tam Giac Mach flower season

The story of the Tam Giac Mach flower

Tourists who have the opportunity to set foot in Ha Giang must have heard the story behind the Tam Giac Mach flower. According to legend, Tien Gao and Tien Ngo were assigned by the Jade Emperor to sow seeds in the lower world. After sowing, the two girls didn't know what to do with the remaining husks and corn, so they dumped them into the ravine.

After a while, rice and corn plants grow and provide seeds for humans. However, food is gradually running out while the new crop has not yet arrived, causing hunger to spread throughout the village. Everyone began to split up to find something to eat. However, after all their efforts, they still cannot find the kind of food that can overcome their current difficulties.

One day, the villagers suddenly noticed a strange scent wafting in the wind. This scent led them to the ravine, and everyone was surprised to see a forest of flowers dyeing the entire sky pink. In particular, this flower possesses many seeds that have a delicious flavor no less than that of corn and rice. The villagers' food problem was also solved there. And that is the legend of the Tam Giac Mach flower tree.
