Visiting a village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha in Nan

 Visiting village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha in Nan

Nestled along the steep mountains of Doi Phu Kha at a height of 960m is a cluster of 4 villages with a maze of narrow streets, walk paths and stairs all together creating a wonderful mountain village. While the houses "under" in the village are at about 950m, the houses "up" in the village are at about 1000m. Our home-stay was in between at 982m.

While sitting at a ridge along the road we enjoyed the evening falling over the mountains and birds flying by. While our lovely host was preparing out dinner in a small restaurant. It was a fantastic day-trip to experience the still going on mountain life of hardworking farmers. In the village are some trees with tea-leaves and some coffee trees. Around the village are corn-fields and fruit trees.

Goooood Morning Pua
The photo above is at sunrise behind us. The evening before we did walk a bit thru the little villages, in between wooden houses, chickens and small shops. Like walking in peoples living-room. Now being December it was a cold night.
