Visiting a village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha in Nan province
|Ban Sakad in Nan province, North Thailand|
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. Following are much more photos of this little hidden village in the mountains of Doi Phu Pha.
