Akha Tribal Village

Full view please is a must, download view is better

A Akha Tribal Village, Golden Triangle, Thailand.

The ethnic group is believed to have originated in Mongolia around 1500 years ago, but most of the remaining Akha people are now distributed in small villages among the mountains of China, Laos, Myanmar, and northern Thailand.

They began arriving in Thailand around 100 years ago and seem to have adopted a mix of traditional (bamboo houses, often no electricity) and modern (notice the satellite dish next to the house); a house, by the way, which is heated by a campfire inside but that does have TV and refrigerator :)

Please don't hesitate to comment on what you like (or dislike) about the picture, any feedback is appreciated. Don't worry though, I won't kill you if you fav+run.

I have to admit that it didn't look to bad inside, not that much space but then again not much private space is needed in such communities. Overall it was pretty cozy :)

They did have a TV and fridge though but were cooking on a camp fire in the middle of the home and the bathroom of course was the third bush to the left :)
