Visiting the Kila Chao Tai Phu Khao Festival in Pha Klang

Destination Travel Guide Nan, North Thailand

At 3 September 2020 we did visit the Kila Chao Tai Phu Khao Festival in Pha Klang, Nan province. Pha Klang is a village created by the government and is a melting pot of different hill-tribes from the mountains of Doi Phu Kha but most are Hmong or Tai Lue. The village is famous for its home-made silverware and home-made traditional cloths. And a few times per year there are traditional festivals. This time the xxxx Festival, what is a kind a sport-festival. Of course it starts with a parade, but we were too late so we missed that. We watched a part of the running race where young men carry a traditional basket of their back with in it a bag of rice. And then have to run as fast as they can the running track, I think about 1 km. Looks easy but it is bloody hot. Along the track families are supporting their team. Following are a few photos I took. Enjoy! For more information about Nan province have a look at Destination Travel Guide Nan.
