Akha Tribe
Akha are the fourth biggest ethnic group in Oudomxay and form part of the Lao Soung like the Hmong people. Acca immigrated from the Tibetan Plateau, Northwest of Oudomxay, several hundred years ago. Their language is part of the  Tibe to-Burmese linguistic family. Their villages are situated in remote areas. However, coming for example to Oudomxay town market, Acca women are easily recognisable by their traditional hat, covered with coins representing the wealth of the household. More info Click
