Photographer's Note

Trekking around Kyaing Tong (engl. Kengtung), visiting some ethnic minorities was the best experience during my 18 travels to Asia.

The Lahus are a fairly large ethnic minority that lives in southwest China, northern Thailand, northern Laos, northern Vietnam and eastern Myanmar. Traditionally a semi-nomadic people, they reside in villages at an elevation of 1,000 meters or more, have a reputation of being easy going and friendly, and have traditionally grown rice and corn for food and, for a time, opium as a cash crop.
There are around 655,000 Lahu with around 486,000 in China and 170,000 in Southeast Asia, with around 100, 000 in Myanmar; 60,000 in Thailand, 5,000 in Laos and 4,000 in Vietnam.
