Where is Cat Linh village located?
Cat Linh village belongs to Muong La district, Son La province. In the 70s of the last century, Cat Linh was a fertile land that was reclaimed by the Mong people in the Ngoc Chien and Chieng Anregions. Cat Linh is embraced by clouds on top of clouds, wind connects with wind and sunshine, intact the pristine beauty of the early days. This is also the home of many animals, especially monkeys. Perhaps that’s why people give the name Co Linh (the forest with many monkeys) to this land, and Cat Linh is the common phonetic transcription for easier reading.
About 20km from the center of the Muong La district, Cat Linh village is the main place where the Mong people live. On the side of Pu Tha Kenh peak, Cat Linh has an altitude of 2,500m above sea level. To discover nature here, you only have one way, which is the bumpy gravel road and the difficulties stretching every step of the way.
This place has not yet developed tourism, so people are still surprised if there are tourists visiting the village. Do not be shy but open your heart first to see the friendliness of the Mong people.
