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

Destination Travel Guide Nan, North Thailand
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.
