Hill Tribes of Shan State, Burma (Myanmar) - 2009
These images are of the Enn and Akha Hill tribes living in remote villages of Kyaing Tong (Kentung) in Shan State; and of Palaung and Pa-o tribes living in small hillside villages around Kalaw area - also in Shan State in Burma. In 2009, when I hiked with a local guide into the remote hills around Kyaing Tong (the government had only just allowed permits to enter this area), many of the Enn tribe people had not seen a 'white' face before, so they were as interested in me, as I was of them.
