Akha Tribe Lady
Category: Travel Portraits
Photo and caption by Kay Salera
This picture was taken when I visited an Akha Village in the Northern Thailand. The impressive part of this tribe is the gorgeous woman's head-dress with silver and beads. They believe in spirits which could be good or evil to them. They protect their head with the hat from the bad spirits.
Location: Chiang Rai, Thailand
