As we cruised around northern Thailand, we stopped to visit the hill tribe village of the Ahka. Carved wooden gates with guarding spirits presiding over them distinguish the Akha village. The Akha tribe is known for their gorgeous silver headdresses.
The Akha tribe style of house is supported on low stilts with a square living area and a stove in the back.
I don't know about you, but one of the things I enjoy most when I travel is getting a taste of how the locals experience life. The Ahka tribe couldn't be happy to let me into their piece of the world and I am pleased to learn from them.
