A small village where you can see children gathering and playing with joyous laughter. After going around the village you enter the village filled with clothes souvenirs and snacks.

This little village was nice to walk through. The people aren't pushy about selling their wares and are generally just going bout their business. It's nice to support them in their current endeavors as they used to grow and sell opium...

Way high in the mountain, with very narrow curve one way roads, that barely fit one car. Quite a trek to get there. But worth it once there. Many shops, with historical huts. Scammers try to sell you gems but the straw berries are shine...More
