Hmong....the colourful highland beauties

The Hmongs are a colourful tribe - you can see it from their attire.Also known as the Miao or Meo,they are probably the best-known tribe in Laos -They inhabit the mountain areas of Luang Prabang, Xieng Khouang and Hua Phanh provinces.These girls (see pix) were more than happy to pose for a shot in a Hmong village (giao) in Sam Neua (Hua Phanh province) where there is a large concentration of Hmongs.There are three sub-groups of Hmong in Laos:Blue Hmong (Hmong Njua or Green Maio), the White Hmong (Hmong Daw or White Miao) and the Striped Hmong. There are an estimated 256,000 Hmong living in Laos.
