The Hills of Northern Thailand in The Picture


About the same time last year, August 2019, our product team spent some time in the lush and rolling hills north of Chiangmai province in Thailand to spend some time with the local Akha communities. A few snapshots below are illustrative of the incredible beauty of the people and the nature of this region.
