Recently most Akha villages have been converted to Christianity by missionaries, but Baan Apa near Chiang Rai is one of the few remaining Akha villages where the traditional beliefs and practices still take place.
The festival this year started on the 19th and finished on the 22nd. I and some Mirror Foundation volunteers stayed at the village on the 19th and 20th and left on the morning of the 21st of August.
Attached are some pictures that hopefully tell you a bit about our stay.
